Jamie Foxx won’t sport diamond earrings anymore
American actor Jamie Foxx has given up his trademark diamond earrings to protest against the use of conflict gems in jewellery.
The Oscar-winner, famous for wearing big stones in each of his ears, has ditched them after learning about the history of jewels mined in warzones and sold to fund conflicts or profit warlords.
"I now wear cubic zirconia. I used to wear real diamonds, but there''s too much issue about blood diamonds," Contactmusic quoted him as saying.
