It may surprise many to read that buying a natural, responsibly mined diamond is actually the better choice when selecting a diamond in 2021.

As an age-old industry, the world diamond trade has had roots in countries like South Africa since the 1800’s, commencing with small hand dug mines. Of course, as the world’s appetite for diamonds grew, so did the scale of diamond mining operations in areas where deposits of diamonds were discovered, many in developing or emerging countries.

Like many natural resources, the historical methods of recovery were not as friendly to the environment as those of today and like every facet of our modern lives the diamond mining industry has been compelled to radically change its practices to meet the modern day demands for protecting our natural world.
