On November 5, 2002, 36 countries and the European Community united to take up the fight against trading in diamonds from areas of conflict. They passed a declaration called the "Interlaken Declaration" and agreed to respect the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme. All of our diamonds have been certified as conflict-free by this scheme.
In this way, the participants agreed to respect the "Kimberley Process Certification Scheme" document which regulates the certification system for the trade of rough diamonds.
The Kimberley Process Certification Scheme was set up to help prevent conflict diamonds from entering the market.
People working in illegal diamond mines work in terrible conditions with no healthcare or proper tools, putting their lives at risk.
They’re often children who are forced to work and even tortured if they’re disobedient.
As a company, we totally agree with the words of a former British Secretary of State who on the UN forum once said:
"We want to make sure that the diamond we put on our loved person’s finger was not the reason for cutting off a finger or hand of a child".
We make sure that all our diamonds come from legal, safe sources.
We’re directly opposed to such cruel practices as illegal mining and the trading of ‘blood’ diamonds.
All of our suppliers have been carefully selected from what’s available on the market.
We check all certificates thoroughly to guarantee that the diamonds that adorn our jewellery are conflict-free.
