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.
For many years, it was thought that diamonds worn on the left hand would ward off evil spirits and they signified betrothal to the public. Finally, those who could afford it began to call it a diamond engagement ring. The popularity of the diamond engagement ring really began to take off in 1938 when the advertising slogan, Diamonds are Forever, was coined and when De Beers introduced the control system that successfully worked as diamonds were withheld from the market by way of a monopoly. In the early 20th century, one of the chairman of De Beers Diamond Mining Corporation optimistically predicted that the diamond trade would prosper, ”so long as men are foolish and women are vain.”
The final decision is based around metal choice; ranging in price from platinum, white gold or yellow gold. All have their benefits and challenges but it is likely that your choice will be influenced not only by budget but by what existing jewellery your loved one is wearing. Choosing an engagement ring may be a once in a lifetime event, however, time invested on finding a quality handmade local jeweller will result in an established relationship, likely to last a lifetime. This relationship will allow confidence and trust in purchasing wedding bands, anniversary jewellery and subsequent gifts.

However, since that ring is going to be on your finger for many years it is important that you select a ring that meets some criteria. Read on for some tips on how to select a wedding ring that is going to last the test of time.
