Verified Authentic Conflict Free Diamonds
Calabria Diamonds is proud to offer its customers diamonds originate from a conflict free sources. We confidently stand behind this promise and this is due to an industry wide practice called The Kimberley Process Certification Scheme.
Conflict diamonds or as sometimes referred as “Blood Diamonds” are diamonds mined in war zones and are sold to finance a warlord’s activity, a rebellion or an invading army’s war efforts. The term Conflict diamonds is used to highlight the negative consequences of the diamond trade in certain areas, or to label an individual diamond as having come from such an area. Diamonds mined during the recent civil wars in Angola, Ivory Coast, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Guinea, and Guinea Bissau have been given the label.
The Kimberley Process is an international system established in 2003 to monitor the trade of rough diamonds. Spearheaded by the United Nations, this process ensures money generated from diamond trading and manufacturing does not finance unethical working environments, war, and anti-government or rebellious movements.
The Kimberley Process restricts diamond importing and exporting to member countries. All diamond shipments crossing international borders are sent in a tamper resistant container with a government validated Kimberley Process Certificate. All certificates are resistant to forgery and numbered uniquely to match each shipment.
Ultimately, The Kimberley Process prevents “blood diamonds” from entering the mainstream diamond markets and protects the consumer from purchasing an unethical diamond.
Since Calabria Diamonds manufactures diamonds and fine jewelry in its facilities in Tel Aviv/Ramat Gan district located in Israel, every diamond shipment must be marked by The Kimberley Process seal, that guaranties that you purchase a conflict free diamond
