Very Close to Being Free

Due to the overwhelmingly generous donations from friends and family, our rings are very close to being free. The cool thing is that they didn't donate money; they donated their old gold, which greenKarat will melt into our new rings.

So not only are the rings good on the budget; they are also good on the environment. What a rare combination!

My ring is $575 and Matt's is $550. We also paid a $250 administrative fee, for a total of $1375.

So far, we are at $1,118.25. Woo-hoo!

If you have any useless gold lying around and you want to donate it, please go to our registry at greenKarat.

awesome!! I am SO loving this idea... We were originally going to do that with my mom and dad's wedding rings but I was terrified that I would lose them (I'm a hopeless ring-loser) and subsequently be devastated. So we've been tossing around the idea of doing this workshop I heard about where we spend $200 and 8hrs making each others rings. But this greenKarat idea is even better! much more inclusive of all our guests, much more meaningful and it makes an environmental statement to boot! I am also a strong advocate of the 3Rs and my South African heritage makes the disgusting blood diamond trade a cause close to my heart.
