Sustainable Diamonds: Why They’re Good For You and The Planet
While diamonds may be forever, their impact on the planet’s ecosystem doesn’t need to be irreversibly everlasting. Thanks to the advancement of technology within the manufacturing industry, individuals such as yourself now have the option of purchasing sustainable diamonds.
Consequently allowing us the opportunity to leave a much smaller carbon footprint; both figuratively and literally. Thus ensuring that the pursuit of obtaining beautiful gemstones today, does not jeopardize the quality of life for individuals in the future.
What Is A Sustainable Diamond?
Put succinctly, a sustainable diamond is one that has been sourced ethically. In most cases currently this means that the diamond has been produced in a lab, not the ground. Generally speaking this is done through environmentally friendly practices and is closely monitored by experts within the trade. Additionally, sustainable diamonds can also be considered those that have been reused, reset or resized.
Leaders Of Sustainable Diamonds
Now that we have defined what a sustainable diamond is, we feel it is only right to detail the manufacturing leader. Out of a factory in San Francisco, capitalizing on unparalleled experience within the solar technology industry, Diamond Foundry and its scientists are able to use extreme heat under a controlled environment to create plasma; Plasma so hot it simulates the temperature of the sun.
With the aforementioned plasma, atoms are able toattach themselves to nature's diamond crystal lattice and grow in size. One by one, the atoms stack on top of a thin foundation of diamond, extending the unique crystal structure of diamonds extracted from the Earth.
The end result is a unique, one-of-a-kind diamond that is formed and extracted without leaving a carbon footprint. But rest assured, these are real diamonds. According to the Gemological Institute of America these diamonds have the same optical, chemical, thermal, and physical features as conventional, mined diamonds.
Why Choose Sustainable?
With the increasing threats of climate change it is wise for all of us to look towards more environmentally friendly practices in our everyday lives and when celebrating a special occasion. Sustainable diamonds are a great way to mark a unique moment in your life, without leaving an impact.
Not only that, on average sustainable diamonds are significantly cheaper than mined diamonds. So, you’ll not only be doing your part to help make our planet a better place, you’ll also save a bit of money. And when all is said and done, what’s not to like about that?
