I have secured a commission to create platinum wedding and engagement rings for a couple. They have approved the designs and everything is fine, but they have specified that they would like to be assured that the platinum has been extracted in an enviromentally friendly way. I was planning to have the rings cast so have been researching companies but a little unsure if platinum is ethically sourced at all?
I contacted Weston Beamor as they are fairtrade/fairmined certified but they only have 18ct yellow or white gold available which they can assure is ethical.
Does anyone have any info on this subject? Perhaps researched as part of a dissertation or come accross similar situations themselves?
