Sustainable Engagement Ring Brands

We’re smitten with these ethical diamond companies!

POV: you’ve found the love of your life and now you’re shopping for engagement rings. You want to find the perfect diamond ring that’s true to your significant other but also kind to the environment and human kind. First of all, we’re sending a huge “congrats” your way! But that’s not all, we’re hoping to provide a touch of clarity on some ethical and conflict-free options. Unfortunately, there is an unsavory side when it comes to the production of traditional, mined diamonds. These production practices can be both destructive to the environment and unsafe for the workers.

Technology has given diamond creation an ethical remix. Introducing lab-grown diamonds. These sustainable options are man-made in a laboratory setting. This allows for less environmental burden and promotes healthy and ethical working conditions. Just like in your relationship, communication and transparency are beautiful things. We also like to see this when we’re shopping for a diamond. So, if you’re ready to purchase a sparkling symbol of your love, check out these sustainable engagement ring brands.

Do Amore

For some, an engagement ring is a physical symbol of love. Do Amore believes that those symbols should come without moral baggage. That’s why the brand specializes in ethical and sustainable engagement rings. These rings, along with the brand’s other jewelry pieces, utilize lab-created diamonds and recycled precious metals. Plus, they even come in wooden ring boxes. The attention to detail and love for the environment are evident with this sustainable engagement ring brand.

The Hidden Pear Halo Engagement Ring is a beautiful choice if you ask us.

Ritani

Whether you’re opting for a vintage cut or a modern style, don’t sleep on this sustainable engagement ring brand. Ritani—it’s got a ring to it. Choose from the brand’s expansive lineup of man-made diamond jewelry. These diamonds are chemically, physically, and optically natural diamonds, so there’s no need to opt for a less sustainable, earth-grown variety. The entire Ritani lineup is remarkable, but we’ve got our eyes on a sparkly, customized princess cut diamond ring. Sustainable diamonds FTW!

During her studies to become a registered dietitian, Anja—a longtime vegetarian—transitioned to a vegan diet. Living in Kalamazoo, Michigan at the time (Go Broncos!), she met Maggie and Tammie through VegOut Kalamazoo (one of VegOut’s first focus cities) and began collaborating with the duo. When she’s not writing about new vegan eats, practicing as a pediatric clinical dietitian, and virtually coaching fellow plant-based eaters, you can find her creating veg-centric recipes, trying new cruelty-free products, and spending time with her partner Addison and cat Kovu.
