An Ethical Choice
”Buying antique and vintage jewelry is an ethical and environmentally friendly choice.”
As many people know there are many concerns surrounding the diamond industry and the sourcing of new diamonds. It requires a significant amount of water and power to mine for gemstones, which means that there are not many environmentally friendly ways to get new diamonds. In the diamond industry there has also been examples of profits being used to finance wars and conflicts. It is possible to find new diamonds which are made from ethically-sourced materials, but one can never be 100% certain about its ethical or environmental impact.
If you choose to buy antique or vintage jewelry you can be certain that you are not supporting any of the ongoing ethical issues or that your purchase is harming the environment any further.
