You’ve likely heard the term eco-friendly in relation to everything from tourism to cosmetics, but what about diamonds? There’s a relatively new niche in the wedding industry that’s growing quickly, and it’s not just for socially or environmentally-conscious brides (although, it’s a HUGE plus!). Lab-grown diamonds (also known as lab-created or synthetic diamonds) are drastically more affordable than natural diamonds and are guaranteed conflict-free.
Allow us to introduce you to one of the best in this booming biz: MiaDonna. All their diamonds are “born” in a lab, which means that you can be sure they didn’t originate in the conflict diamond mining industry and did not negatively impact native communities, society, or the planet. The end result is a diamond that is physically, chemically, and optically identical to mined diamonds (with a price that’s up to 50% less!).
Eco-Friendly and So Many Styles
MiaDonna diamonds look and feel like real diamonds because they are; they come in a variety of sizes and shapes, including round, emerald, cushion, oval, heart, princess, and radiant. You can even purchase them in various colors like yellow, blue, pink, and green.
If you’re wondering what else makes MiaDonna jewelry eco-friendly, that would be the recycled materials they use such as gold, platinum, and palladium, which have been melted down to be reused in each and every ring they create.
DIY: Design It Yourself!
Another major plus about MiaDonna jewelry: it is incredibly customizable!
There are three ways to purchase a MiaDonna ring: build your own using their online tool, modify an existing style that catches your eye on the site, or design one completely your own. Choose your budget, the shape of your dream diamond, the number of carats you want, and the eco-friendly material you’d like to use; the MiaDonna team will then send you a quote and a digital illustration of your new bling.
We hope we’ve shed some light on this exciting industry that’s full of positive benefits. Though the reasons for choosing a “green” diamond may vary, there’s one thing that’s consistent: it will look good and feel good when you put it on your finger.
