Diamonds are Evil specialise in laser cut jewellery using eco-conscious materials, including the strong and sustainably harvested birch plywood and maple hardwood. As the name suggests, the brand is opposed to the unjust and inhumane treatment of those occurring in the diamond industry and want to promote social change.

Diamonds, or blood diamonds, have been sought to fund civil wars, particularly in Africa. Violence, child labour, human rights violations, lack of health and safety, corruption and environmental degradation are all consequences of the industry.
