Entwined in the Naut & Chain love story is our commitment to sustainability. Our passion for the ocean is reflected in our deep desire to protect mother earth. Sustainability comes from our hearts.
We believe in treading lightly & work hard to create our beautiful jewelry using mindfully-sourced materials. Key to this ethos is the use of recycled gold & silver, which has a pure beauty – both aesthetically & ethically.
“Leave this world a little better than you found it.”
At the start of 2022 we made a commitment to use only recycled metals in all our jewelry. Recycling dramatically reduces the environmental burden of gold & silver. Mining precious metals is an invasive process – in comparison, recycling is far more respectful to the planet. It uses less water & significantly cuts C02 emissions.
Precious metals never degrade during recycling so your Naut & Chain jewelry is as perfect as a piece made from freshly mined metal - without having to take any new resources from mother earth.
Gold & silver mines are often located in third-world countries & are frequently exploitative. By using recycled metals we can take better care of our fellow humans.
