Even though the royal wedding has passed, there’s still a lot of buzz going around over the ceremony [1] and dress [2] – but what about that eco-fabulous ring [3]? Designed by Wartski [4], a Welsh family-run jewelry business founded in the late 1800s, the sparkling band was in fact hand-crafted from gold mined from the mountains near Anglesey in Wales.
