What Does it Mean When a Diamond is Conflict Free?
Jewelers that offer “conflict free” diamonds are limiting themselves to the Kimberley Process' definition, which narrowly defines conflict diamonds as diamonds that finance rebel movements against recognized governments. ... Our mission is to cultivate a more ethical, transparent, and sustainable jewelry industry.
The Kimberley Process is an international certification scheme that regulates trade in rough diamonds. It aims to prevent the flow of conflict diamonds, while helping to protect legitimate trade in rough diamonds.
the Kimberley Process (KP) defines conflict diamonds as: ‘rough diamonds used to finance wars against governments’ - around the world.
Although the Kimberley Process does not certify individual jewellers, reputable businesses should only buy from suppliers that can guarantee that their diamonds are conflict-free.
