The 1st place winner of the Whiteflash Giveaway who wins this diamond pendant is Meg Zirm!
Meg's winning entry: "There are many reasons why purchasing conflict-free diamonds is important to me. To begin with, a diamond is meant to be a symbol of unyielding love. Being aware of the war, violence, death and cruelty surrounding the diamond industry, there is no way I am believe in the symbol of a diamond without thinking of the harsh reality. I am at a point in my life where my boyfriend and I have discussed marriage. When thinking of where to purchase an engagement ring I was blocked by the thought of where the diamonds come from. I want a diamond that truly symbolizes the true beauty of a diamond, a brilliant and everlasting stone from Earth, rather than the harsh brutality the industry of diamonds has become."
