Just so you know, 95% of the sterling silver used is Eco-friendly sourced from a Paris foundry, circa 1800(http://www.simp-paris.fr/). Be confident, knowing that your piece/s avoids invasive environmental mining by instead re-using existing precious metals – be proud to support this movement, join her damn it!
