Conflict-Free Vintage Inspired Engagement Rings
Engagement ring trends come and go. Halos are in one day and out the next. But there is one concept that always remains popular: vintage. There is something special about a vintage style ring; the old-fashioned design calls to mind great romances of the past, and in some small way connects your love story to ones that have come before.
While it may be fun combing through flea markets or grandma’s jewelry box for a vintage engagement ring, many of those rings sport diamonds that are not conflict-free. Unfortunately, “blood diamonds” were a part of the diamond industry for years due to a lack of regulation, which means that gorgeous vintage piece may easily be a part of some of history’s more unsavory events. Conflict diamonds hurt the environment, open doors to human rights atrocities, and help to finance violent acts.
Thankfully, these days there are regulations in place that enable diamond mines to produce these beautiful gemstones without aiding in the strife and conflict of the world. At Brilliance, we price ourselves on providing customers with beautiful, conflict-free diamonds in a variety of styles--even vintage. Take a look at some of our most popular vintage-inspired engagement rings and know these new creations will never be tainted by a history of conflict diamonds.
