"Conflict Diamonds" are diamonds that are used to fund wars, terrorism, and civil unrest in various places around the world.
More than 60 countries, including the United States, have adopted the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme to control the export and import of rough diamonds mined from January 1, 2003 onward. The Kimberley Process requires that each shipment of rough diamonds be in a tamper-resistant container and accompanied by a government-validated certificate. Each certificated is uniquely numbered and contains data describing the shipments contents.
The U.S. Customs Service is responsible for enforcement at American ports and has pledged to reject shipments of rough diamonds from any nation that fails to subscribe to the new standards or shipments lacking proper certification.
We at Diamond Brothers will reject any diamond shipment that does not provide the proper warranty. Over all, conflict diamonds are more likely to be sold when they are rough and not polished. Diamond Brothers dont buy rough diamonds, thus already minimizing the chance of dealing with it.
These measures have been taken to ensure that our customers can feel comfortable knowing that all diamonds purchased, bought and sold by Diamond Brothers are conflict free.
