Here’s How To Recycle Your Jewelry

Do you have any broken pieces of gold jewelry taking up space in your jewelry box? Not sure what you can do with them? Well, look no further!

The tangled-up chains of gold in your jewelry box could still be worth a lot of money.

In case you didn’t know, there are more ways to recycle your jewelry than selling or pawning it off. In fact, you can completely meltdown gold to create a completely new and different piece of jewelry!

Reusing old gold to make new jewelry is a great way to reuse those pieces by upgrading them to a style that’s more to your taste.

Here are a few examples of what you can create with old jewelry:

  1. Turn an old wedding band into a modern yet simple engagement ring;
  2. Transform an old-fashioned broach into a delicate pendant or a new pin; or
  3. Love the gold but don’t like the gem? Keep the gold and change the gem attached to your jewelry.

Instead of buying new gold which requires digging up a ton of earth, recycling your old gold is actually doing our planet a HUGE favor with less mining involved, too!

The beauty of gold is that because it can be reused multiple times without losing its quality or value, it is a much more sustainable option compared to other metal properties like alloy.

So if you have any old gold or heirlooms you’d like to upgrade, consider melting them down to create a new piece that lasts a new lifetime while maintaining its sentimental value.
