Our focus is on diamond alternatives such as moissanites and sapphires (lab grown), which is the ideal alternative to traditionally mined stones. As it stands today, there is no thorough way to ensure that a diamond is conflict-free, even with certifications. The fact is, there is no ability to track a gemstone from source to supplier, and no way of knowing that it was made ethically. Fortunately, we can know that a stone is conflict-free if it's lab-made. Lab stones are engineered in an environment that includes high heat and pressure over a period of time, which mimic the conditions beneath the earth.
