Puffins and Diamonds
He knows how I love sparkly things and about my concerns about the ethics of the diamond industry so he gave me Puffins made by Swarovski for Valentines Day. We love puffins and feel a special connection with them because of the our visits to Eastern Egg Rock. Aren't they cute?
Meanwhile what do I do about my diamonds? I love my wedding and engagement rings but I just don't feel comfortable wearing them. I've been hearing about "conflict diamonds" for years and finally decided to quit wearing my rings about a year ago. I've told my husband not to get me any diamond jewelry. Today I did a google on "blood diamonds" and found this link. Do I believe it? I don't know. I'll have to do some more research.
