There are other, natural alternatives to conflict diamonds. Canadian diamonds are safe to purchase. I went with vintage diamonds for my and my ex's rings. Rings from the early 1900s are gorgeous! However, BE WARNED, if you buy a diamond from a jeweler, you'll never be able to resell for what you paid. I thought that diamonds were a wise investment, but I was wrong. Buying from a private seller or pawn/thrift shop is a much smarter choice if you must have a diamond ring.
