how is recycled gold and silver used to make jewelry in a sustainable way?

recycled gold is created from consumer products such as unwanted or broken jewelry, old coins, electronic waste and even industrial scrap. it involves a number of steps to recover these precious metals after the items containing gold have been collected, then they are sorted and melted down in a furnace at high temperatures in order to liquefy the metal. during this process, fluxing agents are added to help separate the gold or silver from other metals and impurities. the molten gold or silver is then poured into molds to form bullion bars or ingots. these ingots are then subjected to further refining to achieve a higher degree of purity.
strict environmental and safety regulations are followed to minimize impacts and protect workers, as the recycling process involves handling hazardous chemicals and managing emissions. by recycling precious materials, brands can help reduce environmental impacts, such as reducing the need to mine for new gold, which involves extensive land use, energy consumption and pollution. they can also reduce the energy used in the process, as less energy is used in refining and processing than in mining for new gold.

this is why recycled gold and silver is proudly used in jewelry by brands like CINCO that are committed to sustainability and ethical production. that's why we created the "refresh and reborn" program, because we believe that your pieces are not an occasional trend, so we have found a way to give them a new life. not only it's possible to restore jewelry that may have lost its sparkle, but it also allows you to resell your old pieces. these pieces will be used to feed this cycle and to guarantee the life of the new pieces.
