Why Buy American Made Diamond Jewelry?

In uncertain economic times, the best way to support American prosperity and ensure a robust economic future for the country is to buy goods that are produced right here at home. This can sometimes be challenging, but your support of American made products has several benefits that reach far beyond just the economic prosperity of United States commerce.

First, the carbon footprint is minimized by choosing to purchase a product that is made locally versus one that is packaged and imported from a long distance, often being shipped by various modes of fuel intensive transportation.

Second, by choosing to buy locally made products one can also be assured that the labor standards of the manufacturing process are much more stringent than some developing nations who have a notorious record for human rights abuse. Choosing American made products indirectly takes a stand against abusive labor practices in nations where the manufacturing field is not held to the same standard as labor in America. We have all heard the human rights abuse that occurs in the workplace sweatshops of some countries and no one wants to be a part of that.

Last, when you buy a product that is made in the United States you are supporting American innovation in the economic sector which has been a major engine for growth both at home and abroad.

On top of choosing to manufacture domestically, all of these companies are small businesses who work very hard to maintain their renown quality and ensure that their operation stays in the United States. So not only are you choosing an American product when you buy jewelry from any of these designers, you are also supporting small business which has been the cornerstone of American ingenuity and innovation.

The success of the small business is crucial to the economic health of the American economy. By purchasing a beautiful piece of jewelry from any of these designers you are helping ensure its robustly vigorous future.
