If you're thinking of diamonds for your wedding or engagement ring, a good choice to consider is antique diamonds. These diamonds are handmade, meaning they were cut and polished before jewelers used the electric and computerized machines of today. They have history and charm, and often can be purchased for less than modern stones of the same size. They were mined long ago so they have no connection with conflict diamonds. Many other advantages of antique diamonds are discussed here.
