… Pure Earth has made headlines by working in some of the world’s poorest communities to combat toxic pollution, a problem linked directly to manufacturing processes. To prove once and for all that rethinking material sourcing doesn’t mean sacrificing design, the nonprofit enlisted some of the coolest jewelry labels around for its latest endeavor, the Heavy Metal auction. Featuring one-of-a-kind fine jewelry from 16 brands including Pamela Love, Aesa, Dana Bronfman, and Jeff Hoo, the auction serves to showcase the best in responsibly crafted pieces. — Vogue magazine, “Why Mercury-Free Gold Is The Future Of  Sustainable Jewelry”
