When Will People Wake Up About Diamonds

The diamond industry is a very disgusting industry which is ignored on a daily basis. The truth is that when you go to the jewerly store you never see the conditions in which diamonds are obtained only the front the industry puts on which is if you have money show it and you can't really love her if you don't buy her diamonds. So when will people wake up about the issue that rappers and millionaires are fueling these child labor camps which young kids are dying everyday just so someone can be like look at this shiny piece of fashion !! Aww wow it shines but is it really worth supporting. However with this being said not all diamonds are bad however people need to look in where people are getting these diamonds not purchasing diamonds which are found under inhumane conditions! Pretty much don't get Sierra Leone diamonds because it makes you a enabler for child labor!

There has been a lot of issue made about "blood diamonds" and Leonardo DiCaprio even made a movie about it.

And yet, six out of seven of the dwarfs seem fine with working in the diamond mines. Only one seems to be kind of...grumpy. XD

Diamonds can be ''fingerprinted'' but that only applies after the stone has reached the market. From what I can find out there is no reliable way to ''backtrack'' a diamond to its source except for some reputable companies which document exactly where and when a diamond was mined - but obviously that doesn't happen with ''blood diamonds'' or ''conflict diamonds''. The problem of identifying diamonds from ''good'' or ''bad'' sources is pretty much unsolvable since those who source diamonds from places like Sierra Leone are unlikely to admit it!

Diamonds are supposed to be the hardest substance known to man. But it pales in comparison to the hardness of the hearts of the people who promote the industry.

Western society as a whole continues to buy into slick advertising despite the fact that most of us realize on some level that the words and ideas are mere propaganda.
