Ethical fashion!Diamonds have always been a girl's best friend, but they haven't necessarily been humanity's friend. History books have shown that diamonds have always been at the scene of power struggles and conflict. It would be wonderful to say that this is no longer the case but that would be a lie. The earthy cousin of diamonds are crystals, which boast a similar beauty but without the controversy.
Crystal symbolismWe all know that crystals have been embraced by many cultures, the Incas, Mayans, Chinese, Tibetan and Egyptians. To the Egyptian pharaohs , they were a source of protection and power, while the Mayans believed they healed all aspects of the physical body and the subconscious. In Western culture, crystals have upheld their beautiful decorative status throughout the ages and they have never lost their seat in the fashion world.
What is the difference?The difference between diamonds and crystals lies in its atomic makeup and the ability for crystals to form from most substances while diamonds are formed from carbon. We may hate to admit it, but rappers of the 90's and the early naughties did a fantastic job of destroying the elegance of diamonds. Meanwhile, the mystic and beauty of crystals remains intact.
