Ah, there is much to be said for the allure and brilliance of a diamond – its sparkle, uniqueness, and promise of love everlasting is timeless. However, the price we pay for them far exceeds the cost to our pockets in the mass destruction of natural resources, effects to our environment, and lives lost.
So what’s a diamond lovin’ girl to do? What any reasonable modern hippie gal does of course, she finds a “greener” option. But just what is, and where do I find a “green” diamond?
Enter MiaDonna & Company.
MiaDonna Diamond & Company uses cutting edge technology to create synthetic man-made and hybrid diamonds, then hand-crafts them into exquisite fine jewelry. A greener and ethical alternative to traditionally mined diamonds, MiaDonna Diamond & Company creations also help fund The Greener Diamond, a philanthropic organization whose mission is to give support to communities affected by the environmental and societal devastation of the diamond industry and to educate consumers to make wiser choices when purchasing diamond jewelry.
I had the privilege of speaking with Anna-Mieke Anderson, the amazing woman behind the brand whose vision and dedication to human rights advocacy and conflict-free gems is helping to forge the way in how we can become a part of the solution without having to forgo beautiful jewelry.
