Conflict Diamonds

How the Diamond Industry prevents Conflict Diamonds from being sold in the USA

By Derek Parsons, Windsor Diamonds, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA

       The Diamond Industry , from the diamond mines to the retail stores,are determined not to allow conflict or Blood Diamonds into the distribution channel. In order to prevent the use of diamonds from war ravaged nations being used to support terrorist activities or violent dictatorships, the World Federation of Diamond Bourses and DeBeers formed a committee (World Diamond Council) to implement the Kimberley Process.The committee got the agreement of over  49 countries to implement a system whereby all rough diamonds have to be sealed and certified prior to being exported to the cutting centers of the world.Once the sealed diamonds arrive at a cutting center the chain of custody is documented by each seller confirming that the stones are conflict free.Hence , a diamond dealer in the USA would purchase polished diamonds from his cutter with a written guarantee that they had the Kimberley certification.He would then pass that guarantee on to the jewelry store by stating it on his invoices.The jeweler could then sell the diamond with the confidence that it was conflict free.
        The concept for the Kimberley Process was first introduced In December 2000 by the United Nations General Assembly .They adopted a landmark resolution supporting the creation of an international certification scheme for rough diamonds.
        As President of the Diamond Bourse of Southeast United States I was involved in the industries adoption of this resolution in 2002.
        The diamond industry does have a conscience when it comes to how diamonds benefit or hurt people around the world.We are proud at how Botswana has become prosperous by Africa's standards.One persons symbol of love can be another persons breadbasket.
