All in all, the diamond process is a long journey, much like all journeys, it has a beginning and and end. This one in particular starts at the formation of our Earth. High temperatures with huge amounts of pressure started the formation of diamonds, now well over 4.2 billion years later, this planet still has an abundant source of untapped reserves.
The extraction starts with mining, and ends with consumers buying the products, whether its for jewellery or for industrial purposes. Either way, the diamond is carried along from the toughened ground, towards us as people.
After nearly 800 years of mining diamonds constantly, if we can still produce at this rate, and expect to be continually producing for this rate for , this seems like a very, viable source of mining diamonds.
The company I chose, Diavik Diamonds, is one a leader in workplace safety and has standards that are impressive in every factor.
This is easily a very sustainable resource, and will be available for generations.
Equitability wise, the trade and labour areas of Diavik Diamonds are very fair.
