Congratulations! You’ve found the one – your soulmate, your partner for life. Now, it’s time to embark on a journey towards forever, starting with the symbol of your love: the engagement ring. While there are numerous options available, there’s something uniquely enchanting about a real diamond engagement ring as it represents the real love you have for your partner. In a world where trends come and go, real diamonds have stood the test of time, representing timeless elegance and enduring love.

Are real diamonds worth the investment? Beyond their undeniable beauty, real diamond engagement rings hold an intrinsic value that transcends mere aesthetics. From their exceptional durability to their ability to hold sentimental significance for generations, these sparkling gems are more than just a piece of jewellery – they are a legacy of love.

Understanding the value of real diamond engagement rings

Real diamond engagement rings are mined and therefore have a limited supply. At Jack Friedman, we only offer natural diamonds which undergo advanced diamond testing to ensure that only natural diamonds are set in our jewellery and engagement rings. Their natural beauty is unparalleled, and each diamond is unique, with its own characteristics and story. The rarity of diamonds adds to their value, making them a coveted choice for engagement rings. Therefore, to present the real love you have for your partner the perfect choice is a real diamond.

The difference between real diamonds and alternative options

When it comes to engagement rings, there are various alternatives to real diamonds, such as cubic zirconia or lab-grown diamonds. Lab-grown diamonds are in no way related to natural diamonds. Natural diamonds have a rarity factor, and there is a finite supply allowing them to hold their value. In comparison, lab-grown diamonds are massproduced within a laboratory, lacking intrinsic value and uniqueness. Lab-grown diamonds have no rarity as they are mass-produced extensively meaning that when you leave the store your Lab-grown diamond will be worth nothing. When purchasing a diamond for the love of your life, it’s important to know that this diamond represents the everlasting love you have for your soulmate. Due to the rarity and extensive value of a natural diamond, it is the perfect representation of the true love and commitment you have in your relationship.

A real diamond engagement ring holds significant emotional symbolism, representing the real love, commitment, and promise between two individuals.

The act of presenting a real diamond engagement ring is a powerful gesture, signifying the strength and depth of one’s real love. It is a tangible symbol of the commitment to a lifelong partnership and a reminder of the promises made to each other. The sentimental value attached to a diamond ring makes it more than just a piece of jewellery – it becomes a cherished keepsake that holds the memories of a lifetime. All Jack Friedman natural diamonds have GIA and EGL certificates. These certificates refer to natural diamonds that are laboratory graded for all our engagement rings.

The ethical and sustainable aspects of real diamond engagement rings

In recent years, there has been a growing concern about ethical and sustainable practices within the diamond industry. Thankfully, the industry has made significant strides in addressing these issues and ensuring that diamonds are sourced responsibly. Jack Friedman Jewellers only offers certified conflict-free diamonds, meaning they have been sourced ethically and do not contribute to any conflicts or human rights abuses. Additionally, sustainable mining practices and initiatives have emerged to minimise the environmental impact of diamond extraction. It is important to choose a jeweller that prioritises ethical and sustainable practices, you can feel confident that your diamond ring represents not only love but also positive change within the industry. Lab-Grown diamonds have a negative impact on the environment as a large amount of energy and carbon emissions are used to produce them. While these options may look similar to diamonds, the primary difference is that Lab-grown has No value – which means immediately after you purchase the market value is Zero.
