Green Jewelry Can Be Gorgeous from GreenKarat


Filed under: Jewelry, Do Good

They say diamonds are a girl's best friend, but if you happened to have seen the movie Blood Diamond, that means slavery, exploitation and horrible crime are also part of your circle of friends. Who needs that? Luckily, for those of who love the look of sparkle and shine, GreenKarat is committed to providing precious jewelry without radical social activism; they believe that "widespread and permanent change will ultimately occur through the voice of consumer buying decisions."

GreenKarat makes incredibly beautiful jewelry from cultured gems -- made under high heat and pressure in the laboratory -- and recycled metals! And taking a look at the piece that is my current favorite, Gatsby Redux, they certainly are making jewelry that's as beautiful as anything from a boutique on Rodeo Drive.
