Green weddings can start off with a family heirloom or an antique find. You may want to ask family members from both sides if they have any old jewelry they are not wearing. Have it melted down and refurbish in to wedding rings, it makes a sentimental merger and acquisition!
Diamonds mined in peaceful Canada or Australia, like those from Brilliant Earth, Cred Jewellery, or Leber Jewelry's Earthwise line
diamonds certified as "conflict-free" under the Kimberley Process, an ongoing effort to reform diamond mining in Africa .
Ask your jeweler questions in Amnesty International's buyer's guide.
Irish - English familys may want to skip the diamond altogether and use a colored stone instead!
