No…Not a scene from the new Blood Diamond movie sequel

The Federal Trade Commission issued warning letters Tuesday to lab-grown diamond companies, including one backed by Leonardo DiCaprio, for advertising practices it says misleads consumers.

The FTC said it found instances in which Diamond Foundry and seven other companies advertised its lab-grown diamonds in a way that might misrepresent “that a lab-created diamond is a mined diamond, or where required disclosures about the source of the diamonds are not proximate to the individual product descriptions.”

As Ada Diamonds co-founder Jason Payne explained on Yahoo Finance’s YFi PM, asking companies to be more careful about advertisements is not a net negative for the industry or for consumers looking for alternatives to mined diamonds. Ada Diamonds, which strictly sells laboratory-grown diamond jewelry, was among the companies that received a letter from the FTC.
