You can green your jewelry. Did you know that you can buy conflict-free diamonds (think about the movie Blood Diamond) and recycled gold jewelry? There are a few businesses that are selling jewelry with recycled metals that are re-purified so their quality is as good as virgin metals. One of those companies is Brilliant Earth. Mining is a very dirty business that destroys habitat and poisons land and water around the mine. Conflict diamonds are obviously what we should be buying for many reasons. If you haven’t seen the movie Blood Diamond, please see it or at least educate yourself about the horrors of diamond mining in Africa. It will make you really think.
