Completedworks uses recycled metals that have been melted down and reformed by sustainable artisanal refiners. Utilizing recycled metals is critical in reducing the extreme environmental harm stemming from the mining industry including water pollution, soil erosion, and local contamination from high-levels of mercury and cyanide.
This brand exclusively works with conflict-free diamonds from companies that adhere to the Kimberly Process, which prevents conflict-diamonds from entering into the mainstream jewel market.
Additionally, Completedworks often utilizes Canadian Diamonds, which are globally known to be one of the most ethical diamond choices possible. Diamond mining in Canada is highly and strictly regulated to protect the environment, mine workers, and local employees.
Completedworks uses certified Fairtrade gold whenever recycled gold isn’t available. Fairtrade Certified Gold is a globally recognised certification system for gold that ensures small-scale and artisan miners are paid fair wages, environmental protections are in place, and decent working conditions are established for workers and their communities.
