Isa Foxx is committed to environmental responsibility, which is why we use primarily recycled gold in every piece of our jewelry. Everything in the Isa Foxx collection is made entirely in NYC, where Isabelle, the designer can personally oversee the casting and refinement processes. Refinement of recycled gold is key, because it allows us to start 'from scratch' with gold in its purest form that is the same high quality as newly mined metals, without the level of degradation to our natural resources caused by new mining.
There are different definitions for recycled precious metals in the jewelry industry that are defined by London Bullion Market Association, Responsible Jewellery Council, and Responsible Business Alliance. These definitions are slowly becoming standardized, and we are ensuring that Isa Foxx remains within the ever-changing compliance.
Currently we do not offer components and findings, like peg heads, posts, and chains, from recycled sources due to limited availability. We are working with our suppliers to increase the availability of these components made from recycled sources.
