Recycling and certifications
Metal and Recycling
Our 18kt gold is sourced responsibly and certified by RJC. Our gold is primarily from a recycled source, gold that is already in circulation, thus minimising the need for mining. We want to ensure there is a strong sense of timelessness in your Ro Copenhagen pieces so that you can enjoy them for years to come, and this is why we only work in 18kt gold — the highest quality solid gold in the market.
We have strict recycling policies at our offices, and re-use wherever we can. Our materials and jewellery are transported to stockists and from suppliers in home compostable cellulose and/or oxo-biodegradable bags. Plastic usage and waste has been a historical problem within the jewellery industry, so we are playing our part in this crucial global effort to eliminate unnecessary waste.
Stones: Diamonds and Gemstones
Each Ro Copenhagen design is set with a signature, brilliant-cut diamond. We go above and beyond standard industry regulations to ensure that we can stand behind every stone we use in our jewellery. All diamonds and gemstones selected for Ro Copenhagen jewellery are exclusively of natural origin and are untreated, are from responsible sources not involved in funding conflict and are in compliance with relevant UN resolutions. All of our stones are sourced from mines that adhere to the most strictest environmental and human rights standards.
We also constantly review our materials to ensure that we are using the best options in the marketplace at any given time.
Our Packaging and Deliveries
In 2020 we sharpened our focus on our packaging and catalogue, specifically looking at the development of our jewellery boxes and printed materials with the environment in mind. Launching in 2021 our new packaging will be made from recycled and eco-friendly materials.
Ro has made the decision not to discontinue printed catalogues, opting for an environmentally-friendly digital format instead.
Wherever possible, Ro Copenhagen ships products and orders with CO2-neutral services.
