“We’ve been saying for some time that sustainability is not just about the environment and that other elements are just as important, such as working with a community,” Mark Danks, sales and marketing manager of JMNY, said in a statement.”We really want to tip the balance back toward platinum from cheaper alternatives, so by starting with the newest people in the industry, we hope to play our part in sustaining the design and manufacture of platinum jewelry in North America.”
