What is recycled gold?
Recycled gold means that I buy my gold from a supplier who pledges not to sell new gold from mines. All gold has some recycled content. When a supplier makes gold wire, sheet, casting grain, etc. they always melt down gold and alloy metals to make the required alloy (14k, 18k etc). I choose suppliers who only use gold they purchase from non-mine sources. These sources are typically other jewelers selling back the leftover snippets of gold from hand fabrication, gold dust, gold castings, and returned gold jewelry.

Recycled gold is better for the environment because we're not disrupting large portions of the earth to find smaller and smaller quantities of "new" gold.

Recycled gold is just as good as mined gold. There is no difference between the two when you're wearing it as jewelry, except that you can feel good knowing you've cared for the earth.
