Gee they dont give you long to edit a post around hereWell yes i realise its not perfect
To be perfectly honest i don't care about being carbon natural
Ive done plenty of other things throught out my life to compensate like not have children and take clean energy public transport or walk to work
So i personally as a consumer would not take that into account when comparing MM to lab grown
Fare wages and safe working conditions are another matter
Yea! The live broadcasts on tv right now is much much more important and meaningful to the world than those "echo friendly" mmd marketing gimmicks!Sorry my mistake
I was watching something big and important on tv and it had my attention
i ment natural from the ground
This is why I loved when used to carry out Canadian diamonds. I’m sad they no longer do.1. Potentially yes I could see that as an issue, which is why the recent increase of consumer interest and thus new companies in the lab diamond market is actually a bit of a deterrent for me. Just a few years ago, it seemed that most lab diamonds sold in the American jewelry market were nearly by default made in the USA. It was certainly so when I got engaged with a lab diamond in 2007. That’s obviously no longer the case.
2. While true, shopping pre-owned has less impact than shopping for a new diamond on incentivizing bad actors.
Re Devils advocate— My husband and I met while collaborating on combatting African arms trafficking, he was born and raised in Africa, and we got engaged shortly after the Di Caprio movie. 15 years later we still have careers in international relations and each spend much of our time living and working in places where humans are often not treated as such. I might take the severity of conflict diamonds a little more personally than some in the “20%” to which you refer. However I know I’m not alone.
Do you have a link to that table?Figures of rough MMD 2019:
The estimated total production of MMD was about 7.5 million carats in their rough form in 2019. Total 66% of which was produced in China due to cheap production cost. Did those “MMD factories of the world” follow the environment protection recommendations or did they use green energy to made diamonds? No carbon food print? Make MMD from the air? Who knows?
India produced about more than 20% of rough MMD in 2009. How about MMD “made in the USA” including Light Box and the Diamond Foundry? It shared about 8%.
The total production of MMD in 2020 is projected around 10 million carats in rough form in which “made in China” will certainly increase the shares and drop the price!
