You hear a lot about "ethical" diamonds and "conflict free" diamonds. For many, it raises concern during the buying process. How can you be sure your diamonds are ethical and conflict free?
Established in 2003, Kimberly Process, which is a system that tracks diamonds from its very source to the markets where it is sold, has partnered with the industry, governments, NGO's, and the United Nations to prevent the trade of illegal diamonds. As a result, more than 99% of diamonds today are conflict-free.
Maharani Jewels, along with the international diamond
industry, has a zero-tolerance policy towards conflict diamonds (also known as blood diamonds).
At Maharani, all the diamonds we use originate from sources that are both ethical, as well as environmentally responsible. We only purchase diamonds through the largest and most responsible suppliers who, like Maharani, adhere to and enforce the strict standards established by the Kimberly Process.
Diamonds are presently mined throughout the world, in countries such as Canada, Australia, Africa, and Russia. The diamond industry has supported tens of millions of individuals globally. For more information, please visit www.diamondfacts.org
