As we approach Valentine’s Day, many potential grooms-to-be are preparing to pop the question on what’s arguable one of the most romantic days of the year.
With less than 2 weeks to go until the big day, if you’re looking to find the perfect ring to commemorate your relationship, a new, more affordable alternative to mined diamonds may be the right choice.
There’s no denying the appeal of a diamond ring to mark an engagement, since the precious stone symbolizes commitment, faithfulness and love. However, in light of growing ethical and environmental concerns, the gemstone’s appeal seems to have tarnished lately, and consumers are opting for alternatives that are fairly-traded, as well as cost-effective.
What many people don’t realize is that unlike faux stones like cubic zirconia, lab-grown diamonds are every bit as precious and durable as mined diamonds. In fact, if you were to give a jeweler a microscope to inspect a diamond that was grown in a lab next to one that was mined, they’d be indistinguishable.
Make this Valentine’s Day memorable by proposing with a unique lab-grown diamond engagement ring.
