It is important to consider several factors when choosing between mined and lab grown diamonds, including the energy surrounding the stones. As evident as it is that lab-created diamonds are a proverbial fresh start (since they were created ethically in a laboratory), the same cannot be said for mined diamonds.
No matter what your beliefs are, you’ve probably heard of karma. It’s important to be aware of the negative karmic energy associated with mined diamonds for reasons that are self-evident.
YOU COULD BE GETTING A DIAMOND OF DIVORCE
The divorce rate has hovered around 50% for years, which leads to many diamonds coming back into the retail market after a failed marriage. In order to avoid negative connotations associated with divorce diamonds, unscrupulous diamond dealers often send them back to the laboratory to receive a new certificate that shows a recent date, but the inescapable truth is that these diamonds are living witnesses to a divorce. What do you want the love of your life to wear on her finger? Would you prefer she wear a secondhand diamond, or would you prefer to honour the bond between you and her with a pristine lab created diamond?
MINED DIAMONDS CAN BE BLOOD DIAMONDS
There is a major disadvantage of natural diamonds, namely the untraceability of their origin, which is not true for man made diamonds, which can be traced back to the exact lab they were grown in. While some mined diamonds may offer “origin certificates,” these are little more than marketing tools; the industry’s very nature makes diamonds nearly impossible to trace.
THE DIAMOND MAY HAVE BELONGED TO SOMEONE WHO DIED
‘Diamonds are forever,’ as the saying goes, but there is a dark underside to it. While some diamonds remain family heirlooms passed down the generations, many others are usually re-introduced into the market once the last owner has passed away. Most women don’t aren’t too keen on wearing a diamond that once belonged to someone who has passed away for obvious reasons. Yet, due to the veiled practices of the diamond industry, it’s nearly impossible to determine who the previous owner was.
