Modern Rustic Diamond adheres to a zero tolerance policy in regards to conflict diamonds.
We support the Kimberley Process (KP), which was started in May 2000 when Southern African diamond-producing states met in Kimberley, South Africa to discuss ways to stop the violent trades of diamonds. The Kimberley Process is a joint governments, industry and civil society initiative to stem the flow of conflict diamonds – rough diamonds used by rebel movements to undermine and finance wars against legitimate governments.
We applaud the process of tracking diamonds from mine to market in an exhaustive on-going effort to prevent the trade of blood diamonds. Therefore, at Modern Rustic Diamond we exclusively purchase our rough diamonds through steadfast and respectful suppliers who also enforce the standards established and upheld by the Kimberley Process.
