    You should add another option for those of us who do care and decided not to get diamonds.

    This topic has been discussed to death, a search would yield many threads on Wedding Bee about blood diamonds.

    I would be interested in hearing a detailed account of how you came to the conclusion that your earrings were in fact blood diamonds.

    I have a fair trade sapphire and am extremely happy with my purchase.

    Mine’s a Canadian Diamond!!!!

    The Canadian Diamonds even have a cute polar bear etched into them.  Sure, I got a smaller rock for the money of typical diamonds, but the quality is supreme and the non-conflict aspect was super important to me.

    Only reason I have a diamond is because it was J’s great grandmother’s from the 30s.

    Mine is 50+ years old. Everything 50+ years old took blood to get so I cherish it because it’s a blood diamond.

    The poll options aren’t terribly helpful to me.  Know where’s from and 100% clean seem pretty similar to me (those who know where it is from are likely to largely overlap with those who know it’s clean).  I think the poll would be more useful if you looked at gradations of caring.   For example, I cared enough to ask at the places we looked but didn’t do any extra research to double check on it (both places said conflict free and named locations matching that).  So would I say I know 100% where it is from and that it’s clean?  No.  But neither do I think it’s a “don’t know.”
