Why Shop Ethically Sourced Canadian Diamonds
Shopping ethically goes beyond packing your reusable grocery bags when you make a trip to the store. As consumers, the choices we make daily have the ability to impact thousands of lives beyond our own. Here at Anueva Jewelry, we make a conscious and deliberate effort to ensure purchasing our jewelry is a choice you feel good about.
A Brief History of Diamonds
The diamond industry has a long-rooted history that dates back to the 14th century. First worn solely by the aristocracy, their use became more ubiquitous by the 18th century as their abundance grew. Following the discovery of South African diamond mines in the 1870s, the desire increased tenfold. The longing for opulence was further compounded by the rise of the Gilded Age in the United States during the same era. With popularity and availability on the rise, diamond production steadily grew.
By the 19th and 20th centuries, diamonds were a staple of modern, attainable luxury. However, this increased demand led to a series of unethical mining practices. With such steep financial gain at stake, mining diamonds led to violent conflict, notably in South Africa. In an effort to halt human rights violations that spurred from these conflicts, the Kimberly Process was introduced in 2003 to eradicate conflict diamonds.
The Quest for Ethical Diamonds
Knowing where your diamonds are sourced is crucial to supporting ethical companies. Anueva Jewelry understands that making countless decisions can be daunting. To ease the burden, we obsess over every detail so you don’t have to. We pride ourselves on hand-picking every stone that hits our store. When purchasing diamonds, we are excessively selective to ensure that every stone acquired from the Misfit Canadian Diamond collection is ethically sourced and traceable from start to finish.
