Ethical Rose Beach Gold Band - Narrow

Regular price $265.00 USD Sale

This is a very special ring made from our New Zealand Beach Gold. We buy the gold from Ash’s Dad who has special connections to the ultra-small scale (usually 1 or 2 people) alluvial gold operations on the beaches of the West Coast.

These super ethical, non-damaging set-ups collect the gold by washing it out of sand or pebbles using water. We think it’s pretty cool to support this traditional part of West Coast culture that’s unique to New Zealand. You can get the full story here.

After we buy the gold, it never leaves our hands. Ash alloys it himself without sending it away to be refined. Because of this, the rings made from this gold often have some surface imperfections. These in no way compromise the strength of the ring but tell the story of its origin.

We can’t really predict or control how these imperfections come out and rather than fighting them, we celebrate them. if you’d like to see some examples of past pieces, check out this blog post.
