Diamonds: The Bohemian Alternative
Posted on June 24 2016
Diamond Rings have long been the symbol of love… And more often than not, these rings have big, sparkling, immaculately cut diamonds. We get that. They look fantastic!
But we here at ‘Indie and Harper’ are all about living and breathing a ‘Bohemian lifestyle’, and the Bohemian alternative to traditional diamond rings (whether you’re getting engaged or looking for a ring that is as unique as it is beautiful) are our new Raw Diamond Rings and Herkimer Quartz Diamond Rings
The Raw Diamond in particular is often overlooked. If you’ve never seen one, don’t worry, you’re not alone. Most of us haven’t. We’re so used to seeing the cut and polished diamonds marketed by jewellery stores across the world as a “girl’s best friend” that we don’t even consider that there might be something more amazing just around the corner
You’d know from following us on social media www.instagram.com/indieandharper or reading our blog, that people, the environment and doing the right thing are important to us and we guarantee our Raw Diamonds have been purchased from ethically sourced mines in South Africa, conflict free and mined in accordance with the Kimberley Process.
If you haven’t heard of it, the Kimberley Process came about to ensure diamonds were not sold to help finance rebel groups and their allies (under armed conflict or civil war). Conflict diamonds are worth billions and that money often goes to warlords to buy weapons. There is no way we’d support this, which is why it’s so important for us to know our diamonds are conflict-free.
The Raw Diamond is something truly special and we promise you that no one else in the world will have the same ring as you! And because all of us ‘Bohemian Goddesses’ are so special and unique, our Raw Diamond Rings come in three colours – black, white and ocean, to match your own style! We also now have the new Herkimer Quartz Diamond Rings which are available in 14k Gold Fill and Sterling Silver (we note that the Herkimer Quartz Diamonds are not actual diamonds, but crystals of the top most beautiful quality).
If a cut and polished diamond is a “girl’s best friend”, then the Raw Diamond and Herkimer Quartz Diamonds are a “Bohemian’s best friend”.
With Love and Light
