When you’re shopping for wedding rings — specifically recycled wedding rings — it can be nearly impossible to know if they are truly eco-friendly and ethically sourced… until now! We are pleased to introduce you to LilyEmme, a jewelry shop that offers truly recycled wedding rings for the discerning couple. Valerie, the shop owner and designer, handcrafts each ring in her Seattle studio and works with refiners who deal exclusively in 100% recycled metals. This means there is no further degradation to the environment and each piece is thoughtfully created with the Earth in mind. When Valerie works with gemstones, she uses suppliers who source diamonds and stones from conflict-free mines (in Russia, Canada, and Africa). To top it off, Valerie’s recycled wedding rings are positively stunning and feature a modern and simple (but elegant) look that we love. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorites from her shop to showcase today. Which of these rings is your favorite?
