Recycle. Repurpose. Reimagine.

Kinn highlights the importance of using recycled gold with its KinnCycle® program, which allows customers to send in gold jewelry in exchange for a Kinn gift card.

Collections In The Story

KinnCycle® program

APRIL 22, 2022

Our goal is to make the many moments you’ll live a little bit more beautiful, while doing our best to be thoughtful and responsible stewards of our planet. We encourage honest conversation around being intentional and purposeful. Navigating conscious consumption with our guiding North Star values: thoughtful, purposeful, quality and timelessness. 

We use recycled gold, and conflict-free, fair-trade gemstones in every piece we make. Created from existing jewelry, industrial metals, or electronic components, recycled gold is refined back to its purest elements, making it not only equal in quality to newly minded metals, but much more responsible.

When we founded Kinn in 2017, it was essential for us to create pieces to last a lifetime and to not end up in a landfill. Through our KinnCycle program, you can send us 14k gold jewelry from any brand, and we'll send you $30 per gram of melted gold in the form of a Kinn gift card. It can be used toward any Kinn piece, or toward a custom project. If you'd like us to create a bespoke piece, send us an email at

Make sure you’re updated on all things vintage, custom, and repurpose  – follow us @kinnvintage.
