What are offer “conflict free” diamonds?
Jewelers that offer “conflict free” diamonds are limiting themselves to the Kimberley Process’s definition, which narrowly defines conflict diamonds as diamonds that finance rebel movements against recognized governments.
What this definition leaves out is large numbers of diamonds that are tainted by violence, human rights abuses, poverty, and environmental degradation.
Brilliant Earth goes above and beyond the current industry standards to guarantee that their diamonds originate from pure, ethical sources.
Their ethically sourced natural diamonds originate from mines that adhere to strict labor, trade, and environmental standards, also Brilliant Earth offers lab created and recycled diamonds, both of which are eco-friendly alternatives.
SCS Global Services has independently certified that Brilliant Earth diamonds are fully traceable to their origins and demonstrate a robust chain of custody plus every piece of gold and platinum used is made with recycled precious metals with earth friendly processing.
