The Saint Mae
the ugly truth about diamonds
Because of great marketing tactics, when you think of diamonds, you think of love. Unfortunately, most of the public doesn’t know the other side of what these diamonds actually symbolize. Traditional earth-mined diamonds fund civil wars, violence, worker exploitation, and unspeakable human suffering.
But it doesn’t stop there. Due to a weak regulation of the industry, diamond mining has also caused environmental devastation, severely damaging the land and water – creating irreversible damage to ecosystems.
The good news? We have the power to make a change. You have the choice to buy ethically and we challenge you to join in the revolution.
