As couples are becoming more aware of the implications of mined diamonds on communities and the environment, the demand for ethical alternatives is rising. This increasing desire for sustainable diamonds, even led the biggest diamond miner, De Beers, to hop on the lab-grown diamond bandwagon to cater to this growing market. Ethical diamonds are the perfect option for those who want beautiful jewelry, but with a clear conscience. When we witness celebrities who have all the options in the world opting for an ethical diamond, it encourages us, even more, to follow our passion, creating the highest quality of diamonds that are 100% carbon neutral and produced right in our foundries in the Pacific West.
Here are five celebrities who got engaged with ethical rings:
The superwoman and human rights lawyer, Amal Alamuddin, who also has been mesmerizing us with her impeccable style got engaged to the actor, George Clooney, with a 7-carat ethically mined emerald-cut diamond placed on a solitaire platinum setting which is reported to be worth around $750,000.
Natalie Portman, the highly accomplished actress, longtime vegan activist, and the recipient of the Nobel Prize for her animal activism opted for conflict-free diamonds set on an eco-friendly recycled platinum setting for her ring when she was engaged to the French dancer and choreographer, Benjamin Millepied.
The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, is also another well-known personality that was engaged to her husband, Prince Williams, by a vintage halo sapphire ring that belonged to his mother, the late Princess Diana. It's interesting to know that the ring was inspired by a brooch that Prince Albert gifted to Queen Victoria in 1840 which she wore on her wedding day as her "something blue."
The Human Rights Activist, talented actress, and the Special Envoy for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees need no introduction for her endeavors as a humanitarian. When getting engaged to Brad Pitt, Angelina opted for a stunning emerald cut ring with diamonds sourced from countries approved by the Kimberley Process.
