Machine pressed recycled palladium half round wedding rings

If you love the idea of a wedding ring made from recycled metal, but you would like to save a few dollars.

You can choose machine pressed (or die struck) wedding rings instead of having them handmade. 

Each wedding band is made to order and is finished by hand. 
We source these rings from Hoover and Strong, a US eco-refiner.

All wedding rings are made with certified 100% post-consumer recycled precious metals.

The most common style choices for these wedding rings are a half-round, or flat profile.

Personalisation

You can choose to have a polished or brush finish or you can add your own touch such as engraving or setting diamonds or gemstones.

Cost saving

Machine-pressed rings are a lower cost alternative to Australian handmade ethical wedding rings. They also offer a less expensive base for adding personal details such as engraving or diamond and gem setting.
 

Benefits of machine pressing

Unlike casting, which can cause porosity and other weaknesses, machine pressing creates strong rings.
 
In addition, this method of manufacturing is efficient, ensuring minimal waste and an environmentally responsible use of resources.

Eco friendly

The refinery in which they are produced has zero emissions (both in air and water).
