To source or not to source, that is the question! A big controversy today is all about sourcing, and ethical diamonds. Obtaining diamonds and gemstones has never been a problem in the jewelry industry. Sourcing diamonds and gemstones is not an exact science. No one, or any group, can say with 100 percent certainty that all the diamonds and gemstones they are marketing, and selling, are 100 percent conflict free. While most sites, and stores, may have their heart in the right place, they can not say that all of the gemstones and diamonds they offer are ethical. VintageDiamondRing.com does not source any diamonds or gemstones. Gemstones, and semiprecious gemstones, are almost impossible to track. In addition, they may have ethical questions. Our collection of antique diamonds (mine cuts, rose cuts and european cuts), gemstones, antique engagement rings, and vintage jewelry is always purchased from estates. Therefore, they are ethical. We don't sell any type of reproductions or "antique style" rings which use new diamonds or gemstones. Our collection of engagement rings include gemstones such as aquamarines, garnets, and opals from past eras such as the Victorian, Retro, Art Deco and Edwardian when there was war to finance, or any young children to force into labor.
