By Nye crafts each piece in their collection with recycled metals including recycled sterling silver, 18ct gold plating and 9ct and 18ct solid gold. Utilizing recycled metals rather than new material reduces the environmental devastation and social harm caused from the global mining industry.
Small Batch Production
This brand practices small batch production, which means they only produce their jewelry in made-to-order or extremely small quantities. This focus on precision enables By NYE to avoid causing significant waste from overproduction.
This brand produces all of their jewelry by hand with skilled local artisans in their hometown, Melbourne, Australia. Practicing local production not only stimulates local economies, but also significantly cuts back on harmful carbon emissions that often accrue due to transportation related pollution.
By Nye recycles and repurposes the majority of materials used in their production process. All of their metal off-cuts are remelted and refined, and their excess wax from casting are remelted and reused to create future pieces as well.
