Our Fairmined Collections
We have been deepening our relationships with gemstone and precious metals suppliers that share these values and are dedicated to knowing the full story of our raw materials.
All the rings in the Gold for Good collection are made with 100% Fairmined gold. This gold is certifiably sourced from small-scale mining organizations that are actively embracing responsible business, social, and environmental practices.
Celebrating All Experiences and Identities
At W.R. Metalarts we understand that the wedding industry can be extremely discriminatory and patriarchal.
This is something we are hoping to change. We are always striving to make a positive social impact not only in our customer's lives, but also on the industry as a whole.Shop The Dapper Line
