Almost all the jewelry we purchase, is at the end of its useful life cycle. Jewelry that is broken, beat-up, out-of-style or nobody wears anymore. This jewelry gets recycled by Got Gold? Inc. at a refinery.
Both recyclers and manufacturers alike promote the process of recycling gold and silver, the energy used to reclaim the secondary metal is far less than the energy required to produce gold and silver by mining the metal from raw ore.
