Ethical Jewelry has come such a long way since its conception and growing awareness of the ‘Blood Diamond‘ atrocities. I am always amazed at the talent and skill that goes into the Ethical Jewelry Market and we are honored to have a the best ethical jewelry brands in our Black Sheep Bride Vendor Community! Bario Neal, Metalicious and MiaDonna are some of the greatest, most creative, and reputable brands in the business and we are so thrilled to call them our own!
So as we recite the ever so popular chorus lyrics to the wise and philosophical Queen B’s ‘All the Single Ladies’…. Remember this as you begin your ring shopping journey: Ethical Rings are the only way to go! Not only to do help sustain the environment, they are often a more budget-friendly alternative and are beautifully and creatively made, just like that special love of your life…. AWEEEEE…. Aren’t we so gushy-romantic!?

Do Amore Rings: However they are not a Black Sheep Bride Vendor, we still love their mission a whole heck of a lot, thought we’d give them some acknowledgement.
