South African photographer @craighowes has seen many of the world’s most incredible, natural wonders. However, on a recent trip that kept him closer to home, he learned how much of his home country’s naturally beautiful landscape has been preserved thanks in part to efforts by local diamond producing companies. Did you know that the modern diamond industry has a relatively small footprint worldwide, using a total global area only about the size of New York City for diamond recovery? Not only that, but diamond producing companies protects three-times the amount of land used for mining worldwide. #RealisRare #TotalClarity

Adventurer and photographer @frauki recently journeyed to Canada’s Northern Territories to explore the region’s pristine lakes and staggering peaks. During her travels, she was surprised to learn that Canada is not only one of the top diamond producing nations in the world, but also a leader in wilderness preservation thanks in part to efforts by the diamond industry. For example, leading diamond producers are committed to water conservation; on average, 83% of the water used in diamond recovery is recycled. #RealisRare #TotalClarity

On a trip to South Africa, photographer @polkadotpassport saw a new side of the country. Beyond its gorgeous beaches and nature reserves, she discovered a rugged and naturally beautiful landscape and thriving, vibrant communities that have greatly benefited from the nation’s robust diamond industry. Did you know, leading diamond producing countries generate $16 billion in net profit, nearly 60% of which flows back into local communities like those in South Africa? #RealisRare #TotalClarity

“I am real. I am compassionate. And this natural diamond ring is a symbol of that.” @phoenixalazam is a Chicago-based celebrity trainer, professional athlete, and entrepreneur. An enduring symbol of strength and commitment, a diamond means more than memorializing special occasions or gifts from others; Phoenix purchased herself a natural diamond ring by @annasheffield at the lovely @asraigardenin her city’s West Loop neighborhood as both a reminder and celebration of all that she is and has worked for every day. | #ForMeFromMe #RealisRare 📷 @_dannyphoto_ — Special thanks to @phoenixalazam for sharing her story and @asraigarden for welcoming us into their beautiful store.

This stunning necklace by Turkish jeweler @beegoddessjewellery had us doing a double-take at @jckevents in Las Vegas. We love how the piece’s organic shapes and forms recall the earthly origins of each of the necklace's diamonds. 💎Did you know that rare, natural diamonds formed billions of years ago miles below the earth’s surface? In fact, some diamonds are nearly as old as life on earth itself! #RealisRare | 📸 by @beatesonnenbergstudio + art direction by @kiracorbin

“It’s important to develop and promote the ethical aspect of jewelry,” says @nikoskoulisjewels. “As a jewelry maker, I always research and pick stones and oversee production apart from also designing my pieces.” These earrings are an excellent thesis for Nikos’ process; created in collaboration with @canadamark exclusively using responsibly mined, untreated, and audited natural diamonds, this pair is a lovely example of the ways in which the diamond industry is working to support positive environmental standards and conversation efforts. #RealisRare | 📸 by @beatesonnenbergstudio + art direction by @kiracorbin

Photographer and global adventurer @karl_shakur recently traveled to South Africa to discover a different side of the country’s natural beauty and learn more about one of the key diamond-producing nations in the world. ⛰ For example, thanks to the efforts of leading diamond-producing companies, 3x the amount of land used for mining globally is protected—ensuring that landscapes like this will stay forever wild for future travelers to explore. As Karl himself says, stay adventurous dear friends! #RealisRare #TotalClarity (Source: total-clarity.com)

As travel writer and photographer Brooke Saward ( @worldwanderlust) discovered on a recent trip to Botswana, diamonds have helped to make Botswana one of the world’s great development success stories. Since diamonds were discovered in the 1960's, poverty has been cut in half and every Botswanan child receives free primary and secondary education. #RealisRare #TotalClarity

On travel photographer Jack Harding’s latest adventure to South Africa, he found not only rugged beaches, craggy mountains, and endless sunsets, but a country that has committed to preserving its inherent natural beauty thanks in part to the conservation efforts of diamond-producing companies. 🌅 Leading diamond producers have a relatively small footprint on the land due to the compact size of mining operations. Globally, they use a combined area of only 325 square miles—about the size of New York City. They also make significant investments in conservation efforts by protecting 3x more land than they use, equivalent to the size of Yosemite National Park #RealisRare #TotalClarity

Natural diamonds are one of the rarest substances on earth. The rarest of the rare, predominantly red diamonds (those with red as a primary color with no other hues, like purple, mixed in) are the most uncommon of all diamond colors #July4 #RealisRare

Natural diamonds are only found in a few places on earth. Billions of years ago, they formed miles below the earth’s surface until volcanic activity pushed them up through unusual deposits called Kimberlite pipes which is where they are discovered today. Truly one in a million, there’s no gift as rare or as old as a natural diamond #July4 #RealisRare

Made from carbon atoms, natural diamonds formed billions of years ago under tremendous heat and pressure at on average 100 miles below the Earth’s surface. In the case of natural fancy blue diamonds, the natural addition of the element Boron during formation lends a stunning blue hue and extreme rarity #July4 #RealisRare
