Raising the Bar

You know every once in a while there is something in life that triggers self examination and for the diamond industry it’s a movie set in 1999 at the height of Sierra Leone’s civil war. It’s made us take additional action, this year in particular, to strengthen and improve our industry’s already existing chain of warranties.

Things have come along way since our industry has adopted the Kimberly Process in 2003. We are by no means 100% perfect and I don’t think any industry is but we are acting responsibly and we’ve managed to reduce the percentage of conflict diamonds in the U.S. to less than 1%. To reduce it further consumers should continue to ask their jeweler for conflict free diamonds and refrain buying from companies that don’t have a written policy and warranties from their vendors regarding conflict diamonds.
