To limit resource waste and epitomize the concept of alchemical transmutation, new Alkimee jewelry and jewelry-inspired products are prototyped using sterling silver or base metals, made to order or made available for pre-order, and only "transformed" into gold and other materials upon request. Subject to labor and material availability, clients can order custom designs and existing designs made with fairmined metals, conflict-free metals and gemstones, recycled metals and gemstones, regular untraceable metals and gemstones, or lab-created gemstones. Alkimee is able to produce products made with fairmined metals as a Fairmined licensee, in addition to curating vintage and pre-owned luxury goods that fall within the jewelry-inspired Alkimee aesthetic.
Packaging is made using SGS or OEKO-TEX® certified vegan leather, FSC certified or reclaimed wood, recycled paper, sari silk, cotton, and linen. Products are shipped in recyclable boxes and mailers made with FSC certified paper, recycled paper or cardboard. They are sealed with Kraft paper tape made with renewable and biodegradable plant-derived adhesive and backing. Marketing materials are made with 100% recycled paper and ink from remanufactured cartridges.
We offset carbon emissions generated from shipping our products by donating to our partner Rainforest Trust, whose mission is to strategically buy and protect threatened tropical lands to save endangered species. $10 donated to their Saving Indigenous Lands in the Amazon project in Peru can protect 5 acres and approximately 3,675 metric tons of carbon dioxide, which is equal to the yearly carbon dioxide released by 781 U.S. cars.
As a Positive Luxury Brand to Trust, Alkimee is among a group of world class luxury brands, such as Louis Vuitton and Christian Dior, who have been awarded The Butterfly Mark for their measurable impact and commitment to sustainability.
