Today’s “Tips or Trends Tuesday” comes from OneWed’s “Top Sustainable, Eco-Chic Wedding Trends.” Of these trends, my favorite one is the use of conflict free diamonds or completely doing away with diamonds and going for gemstones. The wedding industry is taking notice of the need to take gentle care of our environment as well as becoming aware of human rights violations that take place in countries where diamonds and other gemstones are mined. Consider rings that are conflict free or better yet a vintage ring. Here are some rings from Brilliant Earth, who sell conflict free jewelry of all types:
