Nue Fine jewelry
Do you want your loved one to sparkle with a diamond piece of jewellery? Then we advise you to choose an ethical version. Mining diamonds has a big impact on the environment and moreover, people often work in poor conditions to mine the diamonds.
That is why the Belgian brand Nue makes fine jewellery with lab-grown diamonds. These diamonds are made in a lab and are therefore ethical and eco-friendly. Important to know is that lab-grown diamonds are optically and chemically identical to mined diamonds! The only difference is in the origin, the impact and the traceability.
