Conflict-Free Diamond : All You Need to Know

conflict free diamond

Being renowned as a symbol of love and luxury, diamonds harbor significant ironies in bringing them to your hands. Starting from the mining process that harms the environment to blood diamonds steeped in conflict. Therefore, many individuals are now aware of these issues and desire ethical and conflict-free diamonds for their jewelry. Some of you may be unfamiliar with these terms. Therefore, we will discuss them in the following article.

What is a Conflict-Free Diamond?

A conflict-free diamond is a diamond obtained and shipped without any association with terrorist groups or rebels. This also means that these diamonds are mined safely and not traded illegally. Diamonds that do not adhere to these rules are known as blood diamonds or conflict diamonds.

Blood diamonds are diamonds mined in war zones and sold to finance armed conflict against governments. The trade in these diamonds has fueled violence, human rights abuses, and prolonged conflicts in certain regions. The demand for conflict-free diamonds has grown as consumers become more aware of these issues and seek to make socially responsible choices.

How to Ensure Your Diamond is Conflict-Free?

The movie "Blood Diamond," released in 2006, raised awareness among many consumers about the conflicts surrounding diamonds. The film depicts the civil war in Sierra Leone during the 1990s, funded by diamonds. Consequently, on July 29, 2003, The Clean Diamond Trade Act was officially signed into US law, prohibiting the transportation of blood diamonds to or from the United States.

This regulation also mandates that all diamonds be verified as conflict-free through the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS) before being traded internationally. The Kimberley Process aims to trace diamonds from mining to cutting and retail, ensuring that conflict diamonds do not enter the global market. Therefore, if you want to ensure that your diamond is conflict-free, you can check for the presence of a Kimberley Process Certificate on your diamond.

Furthermore, there is also CanadaMark diamond, which undergoes full auditing to ensure ethical mining. You can track the diamond's journey entirely from the mine to the vendor by entering its unique ID number on the website to authenticate your diamond.

Alternatives for Conflict-free Diamond

If you encounter challenges in finding conflict-free diamonds, you can consider alternatives such as recycled diamonds or lab-grown diamonds. Recycled diamonds are obtained by repurposing existing diamonds. On the other hand, lab-grown diamonds, also known as synthetic or cultured diamonds, are developed in a laboratory by replicating specific conditions to create diamonds. These diamonds share identical physical, chemical, and optical properties with natural diamonds. In addition to being conflict-free and ethical, both of these diamond options are more eco-friendly because they do not go through the mining process, resulting in less environmental impact.

Conflict-free Diamond vs Ethical Diamond

While the terms "conflict-free" and "ethical" both carry positive connotations in the world of diamonds, they refer to distinct concepts. A conflict-free diamond signifies that it has no association with war, or bloodshed, and is not traded illegally. In contrast, an ethical diamond is obtained through an ethical mining process, meaning the mining practices prioritize environmental sustainability, maintain safe and comfortable working conditions, and avoid exploitation or abuse.

Therefore, the best diamond you could have is one that is both conflict-free and ethical. By choosing such a diamond for your jewelry, you not only express your style and uniqueness but also demonstrate a commitment to environmental conservation and social responsibility.
