Conflict Free man-made diamonds also Drawdown CO2.
These lab created diamonds don't melt ice or cause conflict. Engineered also known as cultured diamonds, are grown in highly controlled laboratory environments using advanced technological processes. The lab duplicates the conditions under which diamonds naturally develop when they form in the mantle, beneath the Earth’s crust. These man-made diamonds consist of actual carbon atoms arranged in the characteristic diamond crystal structure. Made of the same material as natural diamonds, they exhibit the same optical and chemical properties.
In 1939 the De Beers company made diamonds the ultimate gift of love; within three years, 80 percent of engagement rings in the United States were diamonds. Much attention has been paid to the implications of ‘blood diamonds’, which led to the creation of the Kimberly Process in 2000 to attempt to stop the trade. The technological shift to mineless diamonds is a trend worth adopting.
So when choosing a diamond choose one that does not create conflict and your marriage may feel the benefits.
Lab created diamonds are sustainable diamonds and eco-friendly. They are ethically grown with minimal environmental impact and no conflict.
The beauty and quality of engineered diamonds is impressive as they have the same physical, chemical, and optical properties as mined diamonds.
Lab diamonds offer excellent value, and are slightly more affordable than natural diamonds of comparable size and quality.
