Recycled Sterling Silver is precious silver extracted from used metal products.
How it is made: Once the silver is separated from the other metals it is mixed with, it is melted down and reused to make new silver products. No purity is lost in the process of extracting sterling silver from used sterling silver items. During metal mining, an incredible amount of electricity and energy is used to extract and purify precious metals, a process that emits greenhouse gases. Using recycled metals omits this whole process and therefore saves 95% more energy than if a company uses raw materials.
