The first step in making a diamond ring is finding the correct diamond. A diamond can be either synthetic (lab created) or natural (natural resources-carbon). Once one has the raw diamond, capitol resources and labor comes into play.

Capitol resources are the tools made in order to complete other tasks. In this sense, diamond cutting tools have to be made. Diamond cutters (the laborers) then cut the diamond according to desired cut, weight, and facets.

The diamond must then be set into a band. This band can either be determined as a part of a capitol resource (given the setting holds the diamond in place) or as a part of the labor involved (given a worker must fashion a setting to hold the diamond).

Essentially, without the carbon or lab created diamonds, one cannot have a diamond to cut. In turn, without a cut diamond or setting, a ring cannot be made.
