Refining Partner: HOOVER & STRONG
HOOVER & STRONG has agreed to partner with the US Gold Collective in the purchasing, refining and sales of gold. This project will represent their only US mined gold, cleanly refined by their own certified processes, thereby allowing for the jewelers to create pieces that can be legitimately stamped as Made in the USA. This is extremely important for our industry and our country, because according to the FTC, in order for a product to be made in the USA, the origin of the materials must be American as well.
(The following was taken directly from the Hoover & Strong Website on their practices.) Throughout the Hoover & Strong factory, processes have been instituted that conserve energy and re-use materials. Additionally, all precious metals at Hoover & Strong including gold, platinum, palladium, silver are 100% recycled. Hoover & Strong does not buy mined metals. Over half their metal supply comes entirely from scrap metal purchased from jewelers. The remainder comes from other refineries that also recycle scrap metal. These recycled precious metals paired with conflict-free diamonds and fair trade gemstones make up Hoover & Strong's Harmony brand of products and services. From their internal processes to the creation of their products, all company decisions are based on ethical and responsible choices that will positively impact the world.
A willingness to learn and grow responsibly, along with outstanding customer service and products is just a small part of what has made Hoover & Strong "The Gold Standard" in this industry.
