Diamonds are indeed considered a girl’s best friend, but some of it may have its own hidden secrets. There are diamonds that are often mined in war zones and are traded in the black market to fund illegal doings, hence the term “blood diamond”. As a socially conscious consumer, it is important to do prior research on where your rings are sourced from. Here are five reasons to wear a conflict-free engagement ring:


Budget-friendly

Some may think that ethically sourced engagement rings would come with a greater cost, but fortunately it is quite the opposite. The trick is to look for a reliable and well-versed jeweller who knows that their jewelries are sourced ethically. Some diamonds may not be the most expensive ones on the market, but still you get the guarantee that they are responsibly sourced. If you are one of those that are truly concerned about the source of your rings, you might be interested in Canadian-mined diamonds as those were mined under human rights and environmental standards.


Symbolism of Love

As obvious as it may seem, an engagement ring stands for love and eternity between two people who vow to have each other for a lifetime. However, an engagement ring that is unethically sourced or a diamond that may have caused suffering for someone may lose its sacred symbolism of love and eternity. This would tip down the whole meaning of your engagement ring. The best thing you can do to avoid this is to make sure that your engagement ring isn’t mined by someone who had to undergo unjust practices and illegal doings for your ring.


Eco-friendly

An ethical engagement ring also supports environmental safety and standards because it leaves a smaller carbon footprint on Earth. Most of the stones and minerals that are used for engagement rings are hidden beneath the Earth’s surface and are covered by vast vegetation. Once these are extracted, the vegetation covering is depleted thus raising red flags. Ethically obtained minerals mostly use technology that monitor the mining process so as not to leave any biodiversity at risk and to prevent any environmental compromise.


Community development

Most companies that mine ethically sourced minerals often give back to society by sharing the profits and opportunities to their communities. They usually finance schools, hospitals, and other infrastructures in remote locations that have the minerals. This helps the community grow financially and professionally. In turn, community development initiated by the mining company would foster ethical mining. This is because the locals would feel that they are part in the whole process and thus, boosting their morale and dignity. As a buyer of an ethically sourced engagement ring, it is very uplifting to know that the product you are buying would greatly help in a remote community’s development.


Safest and Best choice

Lastly, when you finally wear your ring and look down on it, you want to be able to reflect on the joy and love that it will bring you. If you are unsure of where your ring came from, who had to suffer the consequences for it, or what factors played in order to sell you a ring that has been compromised, it can take away some of these sentiments. It is much better to know that at the end of the day, you know exactly where your ring came from and how it is sourced.
