We believe in taking care of our planet and the people on it. That’s why our fine jewelry is always crafted from almost 100% recycled gold reclaimed from post-consumer waste. Providing high quality that can stand the test of time is an integral part of our mission towards a more sustainable future. All our pieces are solid 14k or 18k gold. Never plated or filled. So you can trust they won’t tarnish, oxidize or loose their color over time. With the right care you can lovingly wear your timeless DUSA jewelry everyday for years to come.
Recycled Gold Only
Outdated methods of sourcing gold from the earth heavily impacts the world around us. We know there’s a better way of doing things. A way to offer fine jewelry without the high environmental and ethical costs. That’s why we only work with recycled gold, reclaimed from previously owned jewelry pieces and electronic waste. By utilising what is already there we are working towards closing the loop.
Mining Seriously Impacts the Planet
Gold is one of the most valuable materials in the world, but mining this precious metal is a dirty business. Most gold mines are located in developing countries, where environmental regulations often don’t exist and human rights fall short. Child labour is too common and small scale, artisanal gold mining is the biggest source of mercury pollution worldwide. Leaked into waters and the atmosphere this toxic substance has a devastating impact on both ecosystems and human lives. That’s why we try to reduce the mining involved in crafting our jewelry to zero.
Recycled Gold Responsibly Sourced in Israel
Our recycled gold is supplied by reputable refineries in Europe, with years of experience in recycling metals. Their expertise and commitment to sustainable practices means we can rest assured they are the right partners for us. Knowing our materials undergo thorough checks of origin is important.
Nothing Less than 14k and 18k Recycled Gold
100% pure gold is too soft to wear, so fine jewelry is made from an alloy, where karats measure how much of the precious metal is included. Our DUSA essentials are crafted from 14k gold that contains 58.5% pure gold, combining the highest quality with the best durability for carefree everyday wear. For our Ceremony – wedding collection we also work with 18k gold that contains 75% pure gold, giving your special pieces exceptional color and quality with a more vibrant yellow hue.
What is White Gold?
White gold jewelry has the same pure gold content as the equivalent karat level of yellow gold. The difference is the metals it’s mixed with when making the alloy. To make white gold, silver and palladium are added to the mix and the finishing shiny white touch is a rhodium coating. This coating will naturally wear off over time, but can be reapplied by us in our studio.
