Conflict Free Diamonds
Our Ethical Policy
At Diamond Heaven we strongly believe in providing all of our customers with conflict free diamonds. All of our diamonds are purchased from companies who are members of the Kimberly process or the Stop Blood Diamonds initiative.
What is a conflict diamond?
Conflict diamonds, also known as blood diamonds, are diamonds mined in worn torn countries such as Africa. These diamonds are then sold by rebels to fund the conflict. The rebels grossly abuse human rights, often murdering and enslaving the local population to mine the diamonds.
How do I ensure I don’t purchase a blood diamond?
All the diamond companies we trade with are members of the Kimberly process. This ensures that they buy diamonds from trusted ethical sources.
What is the Kimberly Process?
The Kimberly Process started when Southern African diamond-producing states met in Kimberly, South Africa, in May 2010. This meeting was agreed to discuss ways to stop trading ‘conflict-diamonds’ and ensure that diamonds purchased were not financing violence by rebel movements and their allies seeking to undermine legitimate governments.
