Metals and Stones
At Van Raay, we understand the negative impact our industry can have socially and on the environment, and to minimize our contribution to this:
- All precious metals we use are 100% recycled
- The gemstones we offer (where possible) are either lab created from leading American manufacturers, or sourced from within the USA or Canada.
- Our provided packaging is made from recyclable materials
- Our studio practices focus on recycling all possible waste (plastics, paper, ink cartridges, styrofoam, etc.) and using natural cleaners and chemicals during the jewelry making process.
