What are Conflict Diamonds?

  • Conflict diamonds are diamonds illegally traded to fund conflict in war-torn areas, particularly in central and western Africa. The United Nations (UN) defines conflict diamonds as "...diamonds that originate from areas controlled by forces or factions opposed to legitimate and internationally recognized governments, and are used to fund military action in opposition to those governments, or in contravention of the decisions of the Security Council

  • 99.8% of the diamonds mined, manufactured and old are conflict-free, but even one diamond supporting conflict is one diamond too many.

Background

  • To eliminate the traffic in conflict diamonds, governments, the international diamond and jewelry industry and non-governmental organizations developed a solution that provides greater assurance to consumers about the legitimate origin of their diamonds and diamond jewelry.

  • The Kimberley Process, a government regulated system adopted in 2000 by more than 40 countries, the UN, and the diamond industry, requires that rough diamonds mined after January 2003 be shipped in tamper-resistant containers and be accompanied by a government validated Kimberley Process certificate. Only participating countries may legitimately export rough diamonds. and only to CO-participating countries.

  • As of 2006, 69 countries have adopted a system to control the export and import of rough diamonds.

  • To strengthen the government program, the international diamond and jewelry industry represented by the World Diamond Council initiated and committed to a voluntary system of warranties. It requires that every time diamonds (in any form) change hands, the seller will affirm on the invoice that the diamonds have been purchased through legitimate, authorized channels not involved in funding conflict.

  • Because of the aforementioned efforts, the diamond pipeline is now 99.8% conflict free.

Diamond Trust Trading Corporation   actively complies with all of the aforementioned as well as the USA Patriot Act (requires dealers to implement anti-money laundering programs to detect attempts to finance terrorism).

The following Website -- http://www.diamondfacts.org -- Was launched recently by the World Diamond Council. A public site, its goal is to educate both consumers as well as the trade about the conflict diamonds issue.
