Engagement rings are a historical symbol of marriage and commitment. However, as we have progressed, engagement ring styles have become static and plain right boring.

Not only are these rings unique, they are also ethical and environmentally friendly. Many people who purchase traditional, new diamond rings have little knowledge of blood diamonds. Blood diamonds are also known as conflict diamonds, a heartbreaking scenario where your diamond was mined in a war zone. These diamonds originate from areas by controlled forces that oppose legitimate governments and are used to fund military action in opposition of those governments, according to the United Nations.

When you buy an antique ring, you be assured that your stone was mined before the mining of conflict diamonds. Its important to buy vintage because it causes no additional strain on the environment, as it utilizes existing stones rather than demanding new ones to be mined. Trumpet & Horn challenges the modern diamond industry by thinking of diamonds of heirlooms, to be treasured, loved, and then passed on to the the next generation.





If I still haven't convinced you to purchase an antique ring, Trumpet & Horn does offer newly-made, vintage-inspired engagement rings made with recycled metals and antique accent stones, re-purposed from broken vintage jewelry. They still choose to use vintage diamonds and antique colored stones whenever possible. All vintage-inspired pieces are made in the U.S.A in downtown Los Angeles.

Trumpet & Horn is compliant with two major processes. The colored gemstones sourced for the vintage-inspired pieces are all compliant with American Gem Trade Association (AGTA) code of ethics. The AGTA is committed to responsibly sourcing colored gemstones with environmental and social impacts in mind. Trumpet & Horn also supports The Kimberly Process which is an international effort to create transparency and assist certifying that diamonds are legitimate and sourced in conflict-free areas.
