Birmingham and London Jewellery supplier Cookson Gold has launched a new range of Ecosilver, made from 100% recycled scrap silver.

The company is positioning the recycled metal offer as an ethical alternative for environmentally aware consumers.


Ecosilver will be available in grain, sheet and wire in round, square and D-shaped and is completely recycled, traceable and audited. It is made using scrap from the jewellery, gift ware, medical and electronics industries.

Adam Hunter, Cookson Gold’s e-commerce manager, said: “There are lots of benefits to using Ecosilver. It’s completely recycled, but still high quality, it reduces the need for new silver to be mined, and it’s still a great material for jewellery making.”

Cookson Gold also supplies Fairtrade Fairmined gold.
