How to Ensure that Your Diamond is Conflict Free
3 July 2017 / Blog
Looking to buy diamonds conscientiously? Here are the most important steps you can take to avoid buying a conflict diamond.
• The Kimberly Process helps ensure fair and ethical practices in diamond mining, so buying a K.P. certified diamond is a smart move.
• Suppliers and Jewelers have a responsibility in the process as well: do your research and buy from responsible companies.
• Vintage/Antique diamonds may, in some cases, have dark origins, but because they are already in the supply, it is better to buy these “pre-loved” diamonds than to buy new diamonds from dubious origins.
• Lab Diamonds are custom-created in laboratories, which offers you reduced prices and the certainty that your diamond has not contributed to environmental damage or conflict in diamond-mining countries.
