Time to Put a Ring on It
For most people in this life, there comes a time — (or even several times, hey, it happens) — when you’re ready to bring your relationship with that special someone to the next level, and solidify your commitment in stone. Yes, we’re talking about marriage. And the stone we’re specifically talking about is diamonds.

Although the “blood diamond" trade is largely a thing of the past, the massive environmental impact of diamond mining is still a huge concern and can put a pretty heavy damper on the romance a bit when you think about the amount of damage done for just one diamond stone to come into being.
To do it up right, you’re going to want to pick out a stone that is eco-conscious, carbon-neutral, conflict-free, and totally, absolutely, 100% not-guilt-inducing — just like your love! You’re going to want to get a lab-grown diamond. And now you can in Shanghai, completely customized to all your best creative and romantic impulses, from American diamond grower Diamond Foundry and their Shanghai-based B2C jewlery brand, VRAI.
