High-Quality Materials

Sustainable materials means high-quality materials sourced from certified and trusted partners. Our alloys and precious metals are sourced from the highest standards in the industry.

Our Metals

USA Grade High-Quality Silver

Sterling silver is a precious metal alloy that is widely used for making jewelry. It is defined as a mixture of pure silver and other metals, usually copper. The reason for adding other metals, such as copper, to silver is to increase its durability and strength, as pure silver is quite soft and malleable. The addition of these alloys provides the necessary structural integrity for jewelry items.

We source our silver grain from an ISO-Certified 9001:2015 vendor who is listed on the New York Stock Exchange which ensures that our silver is:

Read our article on where much of the jewelry industry's silver comes from here.

In-Cast Recycled Silver

The majority of silver that we use in our production is from in-cast recycled silver. This means that we recycle 100% of the silver used from within our production supply chain without waste. If our customers would like to use only certified recycled silver such as SCS Global Services, we provide this at an additional cost. (See next tab).

Certified Recycled Silver

Certified recycled silver grain is a form of silver that has been reclaimed and processed from recycled sources that have received certification from recognized standards or organizations within the jewelry industry. Kindly note that this option can be more costly due to the additional processes needed to evaluate and certify the recycled silver grain. In our experience, the quality of recycled silver does not perform better or have more resistance than our standard quality silver grain used in all production.

Sourcing from this option ensures that the silver grain used in production is:

  • Certified Recycled by a third party
  • Certified Mine-free
  • Conflict-Free Material

Gold Vermeil & Gold Plate

Electroplating with gold involves applying a layer of gold onto a base metal through an electroplating process where an electric current is used to deposit the gold onto the base metal's surface. Gold vermeil is a specific type of gold plating. To be considered vermeil, the gold layer must be thicker and of higher quality than standard gold plating of at least 2.5 microns thick and is often applied over sterling silver as the base metal.

For the gold plating process we source our gold from gold potassium cynamide (GPC) which is sourced from a Responsible Jewelry Council, Chain of Custody certified member to ensure:

Fairmined Gold

Fairmined Gold refers to gold sourced from certified artisanal and small-scale mines (ASM) that meet world-leading standards for responsible practices. Established by the Alliance for Responsible Mining (ARM), the Fairmined standard supports transparent ethical sourcing from miners who meet strict criteria for social development, environmental protection, and labor rights.

Loytee is currently in the research and development stages of sourcing Fairmined Silver and Gold. Email our team to follow up on the latest information on working with Fairmined precious metals.

Sourcing from Fairmined Gold or Silver ensures:

Lead-Free, Nickel-Free Brass

Brass items are primarily made from an alloy of copper and zinc. The specific ratio of copper to zinc can vary, resulting in different shades of brass, from reddish to yellowish tones.

Lead is extremely harmful to the human body and the environment. All brass in our factory is lead-free brass that is sourced from a Responsible Jewelry Council, Chain of Custody certified member which ensures that our brass is:

Safety for Customers, Workers, and the Environment

Sustainability means using high-quality products only and regulating and enforcing the prevention of toxic and harmful materials from entering our supply chain for the safety and our workers and customers.


We ensure safety procedures to prevent harmful chemicals such as nickel, lead, or cadmium from being used in our supply chain.

REACH Compliant

REACH is a regulation in the European Union that controls Substances of Very High Concern (also known as SVHCs).

Prop 65 is a California state law that requires businesses to provide warnings on products that contain chemicals with harm.

Conflict-Free Materials

Learn more

Social Programs

Sustainability means creating a workplace that provides above living wages and benefits for our workers as well as career training and development.

Employee-Led Credit Union

The mission of the credit union is to provide an additional source of support our workers in case of financial emergencies. Today over 43% of our workers participate in this program.


Wellness Retreats

Each year our employees attend retreats outside of the city to support overall health and wellness. After work hours we sponsor yoga, meditation, merit-making events for our majority Buddhist workforce.


Education Scholarships

Every May, before the beginning of the school year in Thailand, all children of our worker’s can apply for education scholarships to receive money to be used for tuition, books and supplies.

90 Days Maternity Leave

We provide a total of 90 days maternity leave including: 45 days paid by our company and 45 days paid by social security. Following maternity leave, nearly all of our workers return to work after their paid maternity leave.
