Diamonds will always be a popular choice for engagement rings. But with so much bad press in recent years, it’s hard to know whether to pick a diamond because you love it and ignore the potential orgins or to pick another style to satisfy your conscience.
At least with Brilliant Earth they say they source all their diamonds from conflict free sources and they pass on 5% of profts to Diamonds for Africa Fund, an organisation that helps communities blighted by the diamond trade. As for the ring itself, you can pick your own stone cut and setting to create a personal piece of jewellery. Socialy responsible wedding bands for men and women are also available. [via Hippyshopper]
