From Mined to Made: How Liori Diamonds is Revolutionizing Diamond Jewelry

Blood diamonds are a dark reality in the diamond industry. Blood diamonds, or conflict diamonds, are mined in war-torn countries, where the profits from their sale are often used to finance violent conflicts and perpetrate human rights abuses. Workers can be subjected to dangerous and inhumane working conditions as forced and child labor is common in these areas. In recent years, the diamond industry has taken steps to address this issue with the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme, which was created to prevent the trade in these problematic gems. However, critics have argued that it is not effective and has failed to stop the flow of blood diamonds.

Consumers, however, are more informed and conscious than ever about the social and ethical impact of their purchasing decisions. This has led to a consumer revolution in many industries. In the jewelry industry, many consumers are using their dollars to support a relatively new, more ethical, alternative: lab-grown diamonds. Leading the charge in this consumer shift is Liori Diamonds, an innovative New York based jewelry company.

As opposed to being mined from the Earth, lab-grown diamonds are produced in a laboratory environment, as the name suggests, using a process that simulates the intense heat and pressure naturally occurring within the Earth’s crust. These diamonds have the same chemical composition, crystal structure, and physical properties as their earth-mined counterparts, but are often less expensive due to the lower costs of production.


As the lab-grown diamond industry continues to evolve, Liori Diamonds has emerged as a preeminent jeweler in the market. With a wide selection of high-quality lab-grown diamonds and a commitment to excellent customer service, Liori Diamonds is quickly becoming the go-to destination for those seeking exciting, ethical, and affordable diamond jewelry. With an industry-leading selection of

Visit Kampot app a tourism boon

To promote tourist destinations in his home province of Kampot, Hang Panhaka took it upon himself to establish an online social community network and app which introduces new destinations and shares introductions from local business owners.

He believes the application will provide a convenient service to tourists, both domestic and international.

Hang Panhaka, 29, has always wanted to promote tourism in his province since he was in high school.

“When I was at high school, I rarely left home. One day, I found a waterfall in the forest, and it struck me – there is so much beauty all around that needs to be shared with people,” he told The Post.

Since his epiphany, Panhaka has dedicated himself to promoting tourism. He studied tourist management at the Regional Polytechnic Institute Techo Sen Kampot, and expects to be able to use his skills to build something which will benefit his province.

He created the Facebook page Visit Kampot in 2018 after noting that there were not as many visitors as he thought his province deserved, given its spectacular mountain and many natural wonders.

“Even most of our Cambodian visitors don’t know about these hidden gems. They come to visit Kampot but pass by so many destinations that are worth their time,” he said.

He wanted to fill in the gaps and let visitors know more about these attractions, so that more people would take the time to explore the province.

“I realised that a Facebook page could provide information and was a good way of promoting our province to our visitors,” he added.

He started posting information but did not have access to high quality, attractive pictures. This was when he started thinking about the promotional images of famous foreign tourist destinations which he had seen.
