From using recycled metals to responsible sourcing, here’s the lowdown on what goes into making your Missoma pieces.

But why not 100%?

While four out of six of our factories are now manufacturing with 100% recycled silver, two of our India-based factories faced a lot of difficulties importing the recycled silver outside of the Special Economic Zone (where they are based) due to government restrictions on imports. After working with these particular factories for over 12 years, these relationships are really important to us (and we know the feeling is mutual). So while switching to recycled metals is a priority for us, this change won’t be at the expense of our artisans.

Recycled silver

All of our pieces are handmade in India and Thailand, with each factory carefully picked for their highly-skilled artisanship by our CEO and founder, Marisa Hordern. Each design is made up of separate elements, all requiring skills and specialisms from different factories. This means when talking about switching to recycled metals there’s so much more to consider than just a straight swap – and anything done properly takes time. After months of hard work, we’re proud to share our 2021 goal and look forward to setting next year’s.

50% of the silver in our collections will be made from recycled silver by December 2021.

everyday luxury, elevated

Introducing the Missoma FINE collection, an elevated take on our distinctive style. A natural next step for us, this is luxury designed to be worn day in, day out and crafted using recycled gold elements.

14ct solid gold

responsibly-sourced diamonds

Recycled gold

For our first ever 14ct solid gold collection, using recycled gold was one of our most important considerations. Missoma Fine uses recycled gold elements where possible and the refinery that provides our recycled gold is chain-of-custody certified by the Responsible Jewellery Council. This means we have assurance and integrity when we use the term ‘recycled gold’.

We know we can do more with recycled gold, so we’re busy working on adapting this to all of our gold-plated pieces – as soon as we have an updated timeline for this, you’ll be the first to know.

Responsibly sourced diamonds

Something as special as diamonds requires extra attention. We source our diamonds through a supplier that’s a member of the RJC. They also adhere to the Kimberley Process and The World Diamond Council System of Warranties which gives us some peace of mind that they are conflict free.

It’s also important to stress that we continue working with them safe in the knowledge that all their metals are sourced from MMTC, a refinery that is Responsible Jewellery Council certified.
