As our economy becomes increasingly global, we become more aware how our consumer dollars affect not only ourselves, but people in countries all over the world. And, it can become a little overwhelming navigating an ethical purchasing route.
At Isadoras, we have chosen to sidestep the entire new diamond industry in favor of buying antique and vintage diamonds. While we cannot guarantee that all the diamonds in antique pieces have not contributed to political unrest, we know that fewer antique diamonds have fueled the blood diamond trade than modern diamonds.
Many people are working to insure a more transparent, conflict-free diamond business. However, we consider antique jewelry to be the most consumer-conscious option.
