* Green philosophy *
Every effort is put into using Sterling Silver sourced from ethical suppliers avoiding invasive environmental mining - locally whenever possible, 95% from Paris, France & 5% Australian professional foundry. So be a proud supporter & wearer of environmentally friendly silver.

Minicyn does not compromise the beauty of packaging by using bio-degradable and custom made Minicyn Italian gift box from the finest recycled paper & Moo's Green business card option. The result is simple and beautiful! Avoiding the least possible useless plastic frills that come with dressing a gift.
