Supplying Ethical Diamonds to Brisbane
At Clayfield Jewellery, we are proud to provide our customers with ethically sourced diamonds. When purchasing a ring for that special someone, you’ll likely wonder what size it should be, or what colour you should get, but you may not consider that you could be receiving a blood diamond. When making the important decision, you want to ensure that you’re buying a diamond that’s not only beautiful but also ethical, this is where the Kimberley Process comes in.
What is the Kimberley Process?
The Kimberley Process is a scheme that regulates trade in rough diamonds internationally, protecting the legitimate trade in rough diamonds. The Process started in 2000 and implements safeguards on shipments of rough diamonds to certify them as “conflict-free”. 99.8% of worldwide diamond trading goes through this process to ensure ethically sourced and conflict-free Diamonds. Those who supply rough diamonds into the global trade go through rigorous steps to satisfy the Kimberly Process Certification Scheme, such as trading only with fellow members of the Kimberley Process and following strict legislation surrounding the trade on ethical matters.
What are blood diamonds?
Blood Diamonds, or “Conflict Diamonds” are any diamond that has been mined in an area controlled by forces opposed to the government of a country that is sold to fund military action against that government. Those who supply rough diamonds into the global trade go through rigorous steps to satisfy the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme, such as trading only with fellow members of the Kimberley Process and following strict legislation surrounding the trade on ethical matters.
We want to give our customers peace of mind when they are purchasing something as special as a diamond, so at Clayfield Jewellery, we supply our customers with the highest quality of diamonds. This means we only purchase and source diamonds from ethical suppliers whose diamonds go through the Kimberley Process. These diamonds come with certificates and a confirmation that they went through this process.
