Jewelry Recycling Program

In an effort to offer a sustainable, transparent alternative to silver/gold buyback programs, we've created the Lackadazee Jewelry Recycling Program!

It's so easy!

1. Print & Fill Out:

The Jewelry Recycling Program Form

2. Secure Items:

Place the form and the items you want to be recycled (make sure the items are secure and not loose in the package) into a package.

3. Ship or Drop Off:

Drop off the package at our store during open hours

OR ship to

2007 Frankfort Avenue
Louisville, KY 40206


4. Quality Verification:

Once your package has been received, you will receive an email letting you know your items arrived safely. All items will undergo a quality verification by our trained staff. If they meet our requirements, you'll receive a store credit to our shop in exchange for your items! The higher the quality and weight of the items, the higher the credit.

Please Note: Due to our small team size & high interest in our recycling program, please allow 2-4 weeks for your items to undergo quality verificaiton.

 5. Get Your Store Credit:

Once verification has been completed, you will receive an email letting you know how much store credit you've earned. Check out our Recycling Perks Calculator HERE to see how we calculate store credit.

Please note: Store credit is only given for solid gold, sterling silver or authentic gemstone items.

6. You're All Done!

Accepted items will be melted down, turned into new products & will help reduce waste in the fine jewelry industry.

Non-Accepted items can either be returned to you, the customer, or we will do our best to find a purpose for them. Please note which you would prefer on the Jewelry Recycling Program Form

- This is a recycling program, not a "cash for gold/silver" initiative. The mission of our recycling program is to provide our customers with a convenient, safe and transparent way to properly dispose of their unwanted/broken jewelry.

- Sometimes, in order to test the quality of metals, jewelry may need to be CUT INTO OR THE SURFACE MAY BE SCRAPED. By sending in any items, you are consenting to our metalsmiths possibly scraping or cutting into any items sent.

- Lackadazee is NOT responsible for items during mail transit. We are not responsible for items that are lost or damaged during shipping.

- We do not accept the following items: Titanium, platinum, cracked or damaged gemstones, 9k or less. We can recycled gold plate or gold fill items but these items are not eligible for perks.



What can I send in?

You can mail us anything containing gold (10k-24k) or sterling silver. That includes broken jewelry, brooches, silver flatware, rings, scraps of silver/gold, etc. We accept plated or filled items however these items are not eligible for perks. If you're unsure of whether we will accept an item, send us an email at with a picture and description of the item.


Why aren't plated or fill items eligible for perks?

Lackadazee does not have the capability to recycle plated or filled items. For this reason, we will accept these items for our recycling program only for your convenience. These items cannot be used by Lackadazee and will be sent to a third party program to be properly recycled.


What do I get in exchange for my items? 

As this is a recycling program, we do not offer cash for items. We do, however, offer a Lackadazee store credit for any items that meet our requirements based on the items type, weight and quality as a thank you for responsibly recycling your precious metals!

How Do I Turn My Items Into the Recycling Program?

Items can either be dropped off at Lackadazee or mailed to 

1731 Frankfort Avenue
Louisville, KY 40206


Whether you are dropping items off or mailing them in, all items should be secured together in some kind of container (sandwich baggie, old pill container, etc.) with your name and this completed FORM. Please be aware that you are responsible for all shipping & handling costs.


If my items do not meet the Recycling Program requirements or I change my mind, can I get my items back?

Absolutely! Once your items have been received and processed, you will receive an email letting you know if your items met our requirements and how much store credit you are eligible to receive. You have 10 business days to respond and confirm before items are recycled or donated. If you would like your items back, please be aware that you are responsible for shipping & handling on returns.


Do you accept diamonds and other gemstones?

We do! Authentic diamonds and other gemstones will be quality checked upon arrival. A store credit will be offered in exchange for accepted diamonds and gemstones. Store credit can be used in-store or online.
