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 our diamonds originate from pure, ethical sources. Our ethically sourced diamonds originate from mines that adhere to strict labor, trade, and environmental standards.
