When you’re a celebrity, luxury is the name of the game! But a lot of time luxury has a price tag beyond it’s monetary value.  Such is the case with that little piece of bling we call diamonds.

Jamie Foxx has decided to ditch his traditional diamond earrings to protest the use of conflict diamonds in jewelry.

Foxx reveals, “I now wear cubic zirconia. I used to wear real diamonds, but there’s too much issue about blood diamonds.”

According to the UN ,conflict diamonds (or blood diamonds) are “diamonds that originate from areas controlled by forces or factions opposed to legitimate and internationally recognized governments, and are used to fund military action in opposition to those governments, or in contravention of the decisions of the Security Council.”

True, you can find “clean” diamonds out there, but can one REALLY be sure?  Do you still have your eye set on the sparkly real stuff? Chime in and share your thoughts on the diamond industry!
