What Does Ethically Sourced Diamond Mean?

diamond-gem-cubic-zirconia-jewel-68740

When you’re in the market for fine diamond jewelry, an important term to be aware of and always be on the lookout for is an ethically sourced diamond.

So what is an ethically sourced diamond? An ethically sourced diamond comes from a mine that is in compliance with strict labor and environmental regulations. This means that child labor is not taking place, forced labor doesn’t exist, workers receive fair wages and safe working conditions, and that the diamond sales aren’t being used to fund violence.

It is important to always prioritize purchasing an ethically sourced diamond. By doing so, you’re ensuring that the beautiful precious stone that means so much to you isn’t one that has caused the person mining it a great deal of trouble in their life. At DiamondStuds.com, we specialize in bringing our customers the widest selection of ethically sourced diamonds at some of the best prices available on the market. We work closely with our diamond suppliers to guarantee ethically sourced diamonds and provide answers to any relating questions our customers may have.

Our hope is that the wide range of abuses found in some diamond mines will completely come to an end soon through the diligent work of various human rights organizations. Until then, the only thing you can do is purchase ethically sourced diamonds, a process that our experienced team at DiamondStuds.com will help guide you through every step of the way.

Don’t forget your sunglasses and the sunscreen!

July’s Birthstone: The Royal Ruby

While all birthstones have a distinct meaning and unique beauty, those born in July are perhaps the most fortunate considering their birthstone is the ever-enchanting ruby. Hailed by many as the king of precious gemstones and known throughout the world for its dazzling beauty, the ruby has many characteristics that make it a special gemstone for many people, but especially for those born in July.

Historians believe that rubies were traded on the Silk Road as early as 200BC and have traced the ruby back to many other ancient civilizations including ancient Greece, demonstrating the gem’s long-standing significance in the world. For these different ancient cultures, the ruby was highly symbolic and meaningful, and a great deal of that symbolic meaning is still attached to the gemstone today. The ruby is believed to represent arguably some of the most important aspects of life—love, protection, and prosperity. Legend has it that due to the ruby’s strength and durability, many ancient warriors donned rubies on their shields to grant them protection. In addition, being a stone that adorned the upper classes of society throughout history, the ruby became a symbol of wealth and prosperity.

One defining aspect of the ruby that makes it so special is its rich and radiant red color. The ruby’s brilliant red color is often associated with vitality, passion, and a zest for life and love. This is the reason many find the ruby to be a high-energy stone. Rubies can be found in many different shades of red, from rich tonal shades to bright and vivid hues.

Today, rubies are one of the most sought-after precious gemstones in the world.  Given their unparalleled beauty and deeply symbolic meaning, the highly coveted gems make for one of the most specials gifts available. As their birthstone, a ruby is a particularly appropriate gift for someone born in July. A piece of ruby jewelry is a gift that a person born in July will have a special connection with for the rest of their lives. Below, our expert team at DiamondStuds.com lists a few of our favorite ruby earrings that will make the perfect gift for a July baby.
