Recycled Platinum

Mining is an environmentally destructive process that disposes toxic waste such as cyanide, lead and mercury into local water sources. Mines are also linked to poor working conditions and low safety standards. In an effort to limit the significant ecological damage and human toll caused by mining procedures and reduce the demand for the dirty mining process, MONIQUE PÉAN uses recycled platinum in its fine jewelry pieces. The recycled platinum used in MONIQUE PÉAN jewelry is identical in quality to newly mined platinum and comes from a number of different sources, including existing jewelry.
