Certified Recycled Content

 

Why is Third-Party Certification important?

 

The term 'recycled' has become a popular selling point in jewelry. Unfortunately, the term isn't regulated in the jewelry industry the way that 'organic' has been in the food industry. The US Federal Trade Commission and the International Standards Organization (ISO) have issued voluntary standards and guidelines for environmental marketing claims, but enforcement procedures appear weak. The result is that unscrupulous jewelers can make unsubstantiated claims without much fear of reprisal.

 

In this unregulated atmosphere, it becomes incumbent on consumers to demand proof of green claims and for jewelers to provide that verification. greenKarat is proud to provide third party certification of our recycled content. We believe the standard which has been applied is the most rigorous available and suggest that you use it to compare greenKarat to other jewelers.

 

10K White Gold greenKarat is committed to transparency so that consumers can make informed buying decisions. We provide full disclosure for each piece of jewelry we sell.
