We understand that our customers care where their diamonds come from, and we share that concern with you. Every diamond we sell is ethically sourced in compliance with the Patriot Act, the Kimberley Process, and United Nations resolutions. Our internal guidelines exceed these government requirements: we have binding contracts with our suppliers which guarantee that the diamonds they offer to us for sale comply with all applicable laws and are certified conflict-free. We only purchase polished diamonds from sources which are members of the professional diamond trade.

The Kimberley Process
The Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS) was established by the United Nations General Assembly in 2003 to preclude diamonds associated with conflict from entering the diamond market. All KPCS Governments must certify that rough diamonds derive from sources known to be conflict-free. To extend the KPCS to polished diamonds, the World Diamond Council established a System of Warranties to guarantee that polished diamonds derive from a conflict-free rough source. Polished diamonds sold in the U.S. must adhere to the Patriot Act and sanctions by the US Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control. Every U.S. dealer must maintain Kimberley compliance or be subject to penalties from Homeland Security, the U.S. Justice Department, and the U.S. Treasury.
