Ethically Sourced Engagement Rings That Won’t Break the Bank

MiaDonna Engagement Rings

Hello, GORGEOUS! We’re guessing that you probably have a (secret) Pinterest board of all your favorite sparkling baubles, no? If you do — you’re just like us! We wanted to have a good idea of all the styles we LOVED to help our partner along… you know, when the time came to it. After all, you’re the one that’s going to be wearing the ring, so shouldn’t you rock something you adore?

We found that when it came time to talking about rings, there were so many things to learn: carat size, cut, style, clarity, is it conflict-free? If you just got wide-eyed, wondering what we’re talking about, don’t you worry, lovely! The expert jeweler, MiaDonna, is giving us the scoop on all of their ethically-produced gems (and ones that won’t break the bank, for that matter!).


A Little Backstory

When Anna-Mieke Anderson, the founder and CEO of MiaDonna, discovered the origin of the earth-mined diamond in her ring, she set out on a mission to find a conflict-free alternative. She shares: It became her passion to offer beautiful, ethical, and affordable diamond alternatives that would would help free innocent children oppressed by the active conflict diamond mining industry.

MiaDonna is named after her daughter, Mia, and her mother, Donna. :)

Conflict-Free + Lab-Created

All of MiaDonna’s  conflict-free rings are handcrafted with lab-created diamonds and lab-grown gemstoneswhich are the COOLEST! What does conflict-free mean? Well, for one, they don’t contribute to any negative environmental or social issues — so that’s a big win. Additionally, they’re physically, chemically, and optically identical to mined diamonds, and up to 40% less in price. Boooyah!

MiaDonna’s ethical engagement rings are handcrafted in the United States, from high-quality recycled precious metals, making them relatively more affordable, compared to earth-mined materials.
