How do we do it?

Conscious Fine Jewelry is the leitmotiv of the Irene Bozza process. But what does it consist of?
Knowing the origin of the raw materials and the process, knowing what and who is behind each piece and having an idea about what you are buying so that your purchase is

Origin of the materials
100% RECYCLED GOLD
Gold can be recycled an infinite amount of times, without its properties being affected.
As a large quantity of gold is already in circulation, by recycling we continue to decrease the impact that the mining industry creates.
Irene Bozza gold is 100% recycled from the group Heimerle + Meule, which has its own recycling patent, complies with all the environmental regulations, and we can be assured that it does not come from new mining.
They are certified by the LBMA who are responsible for demanding that it is responsible metal. SEE LBMA CERTIFICATE
Irene Bozza diamonds come from Canada and Russia.
The quality of the diamonds is a minimum of VS-G.
They do not come from conflict zones and this is guaranteed by the Kimberly Process certificate. See more

PRECIOUS AND SEMIPRECIOUS STONES
The natural sapphires and opals are from Central Queensland, Australia, other sapphires from Sri Lanka and Tanzania, and the rest of the gems are mainly from Brazil.
Except for the diamonds, for the rest of the precious and semiprecious stones, there is not an official certificate that verifies that they are from outside of a conflict zone.
You must know that the vast majority of the gems in the market have a treatment to highlight the tone and cover imperfections. It is commonly known and not aggressive, the “heat treatment” (it is not named in the descriptions of the gems). Therefore, when nature offers “natural” gems, it is to say, without treatment, their price is much higher, because of the shortage and rarity of these.
