Eco-Chic Jewelry: Socially Conscious Diamonds

August 21, 2007 by SheFindsTara

Make the four C’s of buying a diamond into five; the newest quest for anyone in search of diamond jewelry is to find one that also meets the “conflict-free” criteria. If you know the story behind blood diamonds and happen to be interested in buying diamonds, you might be contemplating how you’re going to find one that’s conflict-free, because naturally, while you want to uphold your beliefs about human rights and balance of the ecosystem, you still have that soft spot for sparkle.

We’ve found the solution, and no, we’re not going to offer you Cubic Zirconia or Moissanite finds, but rather real diamonds from really eco-conscious retailers.

* Brilliant Earth offers Canadian conflict-free diamonds, including pendants, earrings, rings and more. Adding to the already enticing buy is the fact that they donate 5% of their profits to the Diamonds For Africa Fund.

* Leber Jewelers brings together conflict-free diamonds, fairly traded colored gemstones and environmentally conscious precious metals in their Earthwise Collection. Each diamond is certified laser-inscribed Canadian so you can be sure that what you’re getting is authentic.

* Green Karat, while not exclusively devoted to diamonds, features jewelry of all kinds, but has a policy for only selling those made with recycled metals and gems that are either recycled, laboratory created or mined in an ecologically responsible manner.
