When sourcing a diamond for a customer, Bario-Neal offers the following options: Recycled Diamonds, Kimberly Process Diamonds, Canadian Diamonds, and Namibian Kalahari Diamonds. To help you choose which is the best diamond for you, this post will review Recycled Diamonds and their benefits and drawbacks.
Diamonds have been treasured as gemstones since their use in religious amulets in India dating as far back as 6,000 years ago. Approximately 4.5 billion carats of diamonds have been extracted from the ground since large-scale mining efforts began in South Africa in the 1870’s. This means many millions of diamonds are part of the world’s existing, above ground supply of diamonds. In order to reduce the industry’s reliance on environmentally damaging mining practices, these diamonds can be recycled and reintroduced back into the jewelry supply chain.
