WHAT IS A CONFLICT-FREE DIAMOND?
A conflict-free diamond means a diamond that’s mined and shipped without connection to rebel or terror groups. Procedures and agreements like The Kimberley Process are in place to guarantee that diamonds are mined and shipped according to certain ethical standards.
There are only a few reliable sources for truly Conflict Free Diamonds or Ethically Sourced Diamonds. Australia, Canada, and Botswana Africa are the most well-known and prolific.
What Sets Us Apart?
Vees Star goes above and beyond the current industry standards to offer Conflict Free Diamonds. Our select group of diamond suppliers demonstrate a robust chain of custody protocol for their diamonds and have the ability to track and segregate diamonds by origin.
These suppliers are required to source diamonds that originate from specific mine operations or specific countries that have demonstrated their commitment to follow internationally recognized labor, trade, and environmental standards.
Why are these mines considered ethical?
Mining practices, fair wages, and humanitarian efforts are the prominent reasons. The mining practices are considered safer with worker safety being at the top of management’s concerns. Hospitals, social infrastructure, and education work hand in hand with economic stability to better the lives of the people in the mining regions.
