I don’t think there is an official sustainability standard for diamonds. Even if there were, keep in mind that mining diamonds requires, well, mining–and this is about as far from sustainable as you can get, blowing a hole in the ground to fish out some bling.
You can look into individual companies and read their environmental testimonies (here’s Petra’s report). There are also organizations that help you find fair trade and ethically mined jewelry, and if its helping the community, its probably (hopefully) considering their environment too. Check out Pride Diamond or Brilliant Earth. Even better, you can pick up recycled jewelry, which of course doesn’t require any mining. Also, vintage is cool, right? Take a look at what Green Karat has to offer.
