Recycling

At Holly Ryan, one of the most important elements of the business has always been to work as sustainably as possible. We recycle everything we can here! Old broken jewellery is melted down and the metal refined to be used again. Plastic is avoided wherever possible and recycled when used and paper usage is kept to a minimum (we are soon to discontinue the use of paper receipts unless requested) and we re-use old damaged boxes to store our jewellery stock, findings and bit and bobs.

Every day we are looking at new ways that we can better use the resources that we have. With this in mind, we are now introducing our 'Old for New' closed loop system, where we ask you to save any old Holly Ryan jewellery you are no longer wearing (Unless you want us to refresh/repair/replate it for you?) and save the boxes the jewellery came in and return them to us for store credit. We would much rather you did this than throwing boxes away or allowing jewellery to sit unworn in the back of the cupboard forevermore.

Don't worry if you didn't originally buy your H/R jewellery directly from us, we are happy to accept our jewellery regardless of where you originally purchased it.

The credit note that you will receive for returned items will vary. Solid Gold jewellery will be credited for its metal content, less refining costs, while silver and gold plated items will receive a flat rate credit as listed below:

Jewellery 
Small items*(original RRP under $100) - $20 credit note
Medium items (original RRP under $200) - $40 credit note 
Large items (original RRP over $200) - $80 credit note
*Silver magnetic field hooks (small & large) and droplet hooks are not included and may not be returned alone for credit, although we will accept them and apply some credit ($5-15) when they are included with other items

Boxes
Small ring or earring - $3 credit note
Large Earring or bangle - $5 credit note
Large flat choker box - $10 credit note

On occasion, should unworn or as new jewellery be returned to us, we may offer you a higher amount, although full value cannot be applied as we will need to rework, polish &/or replate the jewellery and it may be resold in our upcoming recycled section or used as samples.
