Through measures such as the Kimberly Process, the industry regulates diamond exports to prevent the trade of illegal diamonds. Diamond Exchange has a zero-tolerance policy towards conflict diamonds and actively works with other companies and organisations to stop these illegal practices.
The Kimberly Process Certification Scheme (KPCS) was first introduced to the United Nations General Assembly in 2003, a move to prevent diamond sales from financing rebellious and terrorist movements. Set up as an anti-war, pro-human rights hallmark of assurance for shoppers, the scheme establishes a chain of non-conflict guarantees from the countries producing the diamonds right down to the buyer.
It is reported that 99% of diamonds in the global market are now conflict-free. For more information on this topic, visit DiamondFacts.org.
At Diamond Exchange, we ensure that our diamonds are purchased only from large and well-respected international suppliers who adhere to and consistently enforce standards established by the Kimberly Process. Moreover Diamond Exchange regularly requests all suppliers to show compliance with the strict ethical standard of the scheme.
You can be assured that all diamonds from Diamond Exchange are guaranteed to be conflict-free.
