‘Ocean Diamonds’ Provide Consumers The Opportunity To Leave The Environment Gleaming

Third diamonds, which divers collect from the ocean floor, are ready to make a full-fledged touchdown in Japan.

These diamonds are scraped off diamond mines by rain or wind erosion before being washed into the ocean. They are projected to gain popularity as "ocean diamonds" because to their low environmental effect in comparison to mined or manufactured diamonds. Queue Inc.'s Brilliance+, a jewellery brand with stores in Tokyo, Osaka, and Nagoya, among other places, began selling engagement and wedding bands with third diamonds on Tuesday. Engagement rings begin about $430,000.

Divers contracted with a British business to pump gravel from waters near South Africa at depths of 10 to 15 metres in order to recover third diamonds. Workers then sift through the pebbles for raw diamonds by hand. The diamonds are of the same quality, color, and clarity as regular mined diamonds. However, because it takes time to find the diamonds, they sell for two to three times the price of mined diamonds.

The process of extracting diamonds from mines has a significant environmental impact due to the use of heavy machinery. Some have also accused the industry of employing children. Meanwhile, relatively inexpensive synthetic diamonds require a lot of electricity to make. Working conditions are believed to have received special attention during the third diamond harvest, with local, professional divers engaged and ships only operating on days when the water is calm. Shopping in ways that promote environmental conservation, human rights, or other social causes is known as "ethical consumerism," and it is becoming more popular in Europe and the United States.
