After spending 12 years working as a Wedding Planner the topic of diamonds come up a lot. The new brides/woman worry about style vs. cruelty-free diamonds. I'm here to tell you ...you can have both. First let's start with the Grand-daddy of them all Tiffany & Co. Did you know they do carry cruelty-free diamonds? Now not all of them they carry are Cruelty-free yet. You do need to ask when you go into the store. Also in 2009 the company's work in environmental protection and sustainability was recently honored with the Corporate Responsibility Award from the Environmental Media Association. Tiffany's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Mike Kowalski said in his acceptance speech that Tiffany will continue to focus on ways to obtain precious metals and gemstones and craft jewelry that are socially and environmentally responsible. Tiffany's Foundation has supported many smaller jewelry companies which are working on sustainable projects through grants.
