Greening the Jewelry Industry – Danforth Diamond goes GREEN! June 13, 2011

GOING GREEN is not merely a trend for yogis and hippies – it is a matter of social respShow Your LOVE for the Planet! onsibility that will not dissipate into the abyss.   Companies and Corporations are now more than ever being held responsible for their actions towards the environment and their communities.  This is an issue that can no longer be ignored.

In 2006, the movie Blood Diamond starring Leonardo DiCaprio brought the issue of diamond sourcing into the spotlight.  The demand for ethically sourced diamonds immediately increased and the jewelry industry was forced to respond.  The Kimberly Process which started in May of 2000 gained support beyond the realm of governments, industries and civil society as it became a household name.  Danforth Diamond supports the Kimberley Process and will not buy or sell conflict or “blood” diamonds.  This makes Danforth Diamond a registered StopBloodDiamonds.org jeweler. 

Danforth Diamond also offers a unique brand of diamonds called Harmony Diamonds which are natural diamonds that were mined from the earth; however, these diamonds have already been introduced into the jewelry supply chain and sold back to a jeweler, pawn shop or refinery for resale. RENEW, REUSE, RECYCLE.

The jewelry industry has not escaped the pressure to embrace the green revolution.  However, with the strong focus on conflict diamonds and blood diamonds, the public tends to ignore the environmental impact of precious metal production.Eco-friendly Engagement and Wedding Rings
