Where Did Your Ring Come From?

How much do you know about Sierra Leone, Angola, and the deadly path of the world's most precious stone?

I watched a two hour special on the history channel last night that showcased the "famous" blood diamonds. Sure, I knew there was war in these countries, but had no idea the magnitude of the problem and where it stands today.

Want to know more? Check out this book! The author of Blood Diamonds was on the program last night, and he has me interested in yet another human tragedy that I know little about.

I know the diamonds in my enagement ring are conflict free. I also wear my grandmother's ring and I would bet that given its age the diamonds are from a warring country.
