I am of the mindset on this one that you already bought it. You cannot unbuy it. Yes, you could sell it, but you still had bought it.

Wear it and love it. Pass it on when the time is right and “prevent” another purchase.

 

And in the future look at Asha, or moissanite, or the upcoming Amora Gem if you want colourless lab-created stones, or BTD Avarra or Chatham for lab-created coloured stones.

I don’t think that all diamonds are conflict diamonds.  You have a beautiful ring that you adore and I don’t see any point of feeling bad and selling it.

I kinda understand. At this point you already have it, theres no point selling it. I would just do what you said your doing, volunteer, give money if you can, talk to people, etc.

Your ring sounds beautiful- keep it.  There is plenty of conflict involved in the mining and manufacture of raw materials that go into lab-made gemstones.

Only a small percentage of diamonds on the world market are blood diamonds. If you bought it through a reputable retailer, you’re probably safe that your diamond isn’t gotten from a conflict zone.
