SilverAndGold is committed to ensuring that the highest ethical standards are observed when sourcing our diamonds and jewelry.
As you may be aware, the reported human rights abuses in Zimbabwe's Marange diamond district have caused us to not purchase or offer diamonds from that area. Other Diamond, Ruby, Emerald retailers may not take such a committed stance, but SilverAndGold pursues only the highest ethical standards when sourcing our precious gemstones.
All our diamond suppliers confirm that they comply with the Kimberley Process to ensure that their diamonds are conflict free. The Kimberley Process (KP) is open to all countries that are willing and able to implement its requirements. Since August 2013, the KP has 54 participants, representing 81 countries, with the European Union and its 28 Member States counting as a single participant, represented by the European Commission.
