Are Lab Grown Diamonds More Ethical?
Lab grown diamonds are considered more ethical, as they have much less of an impact on people as well as the environment. Diamond mining in contrast has an ugly and large carbon footprint, as it is labor intensive, uses a lot of water, and pollutes a lot of water in the process. Some mined diamonds also have been sold to fund wars in Africa, which has had a detrimental impact. Lab grown diamonds in contrast are made without disrespecting human rights and the environment.
