Ethical Metalsmiths has pioneered and widely shared the Radical Jewelry Makeover - a collaborative effort between makers and market to bring awareness to recycled metals and gemstones. 



Ethical Metalsmiths connects caring consumers with responsible jewelers.  We have a database of jewelers who work diligently to make jewelry which leaves as little environmental trace as possible. 


Better Without Mercury, a one-of-a-kind opportunity, invites you to chip in to make the Fairmined certified Gualconda Mine entirely mercury free.


Our Vision: We envision a jewelry industry where a beautiful product does not bear a human or environmental toll
