Regional Wash-Golds

We independently source and work with a unique type of regional gold – Wash Gold.

Wash Gold originates from small mining co-operatives using sustainable and conflict free methods. The process of collection is very similar to traditional gold panning and is ecologically friendly. Instead of using chemicals to process their gold, the small mining businesses that supply us rely purely on gravity separation, ensuring that no chemicals impact on the environment.

Wash Gold provides purchasers with transparency regarding mining practices and enables traceability back to the source mines. In our case these are located in Alaska, Argentina, Honduras, Finland and Australia.

A beautiful feature of Wash Gold is the regional variation in its natural appearance and subtle differences in colouration.

A very limited amount of Wash Gold is produced annually. To our knowledge, we are one of only a handful of UK jewellers actively sourcing and working with Wash Gold. Given the scarcity of this material, we find it ideal for particularly important pieces of jewellery such as engagement rings and wedding rings.
