quite a few etsy artists will make recycled metal rings. Mine were recucled metal but not metal that we sent in. They melt it down and can still tell you they exact composition just like ‘new’ metal you can’t really tell.

Our jeweler happily accomodate my request to use recycled metal when making my rings. It was not a big deal and does not affect the appearance of the ring. For me, it was a small way to be a touch eco-friendly.

@Sephiroth:  My wedding band is made of recycled rose gold and I bought it on etsy. My (future) husband’s band matches. We LOVE them and they are of great quality.

@Sporty-Bee:  Yes, definitely! I’m pretty sure he just makes simple wedding bands but if that’s what you’re looking for, I was really happy. The etsy shop is called seababejewelry

I don’t know if this counts but MoissaniteCo uses recycled metals in “99%” of their jewelry.

My wedding band is made out of recycled metals (14k palladium white gold with no rhodium plating).  It’s by etsy seller brightsmith.

The seller that made mine does some custom work.  My ring was a custom order that she now sells as a regular item in her shop. (Sorry, forgot to add this in my first post).

Rosado’s Box uses recycled metals for their rings. I’m currently in the process of getting a custom ring from them.
