In many areas of Africa, revolutionary groups have taken over some of the diamond mines using proceeds to finance their illegal operations. These diamonds are referred to as conflict diamonds or blood diamonds. The United Nations instituted a system of controlling diamonds that were taken from these groups by insisting that all of the legal diamonds must be accompanied by a certificate of sale as they moved through the system but the system has not worked well. Today, these blood diamonds total less than 2% of the overall market share.
Due to the belief that a diamond engagement ring was a calming agent between man and wife, it was recommended as the stone to be set in wedding or engagement rings – not because of its beauty. It was described by Isidore of Seville as a small stone devoid of beauty. When you see a rough diamond, it could be easily mistaken for a piece of sea glass that has been roughened up by the waves on a beach for years.
Other takeaways from the study: a majority of grooms (77 percent) are still proposing on a bended knee, 71 percent seek to attain permission from the lady’s parents, a little more than half (57 percent) of grooms proposed privately – this fact shows a growing number of public proposals – and a growing number of grooms (five percent) are now wearing ”man-gagement rings.” For some, it might seem to be a waste to purchase an expensive wedding ring, but for others they see it quite differently: a symbol of how important that person means to them. Remember, wearing a ring on the fourth finger of your left hand originated from the Romans, who believed the vein from that finger ran to their heart.
