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.

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.
