- Diamond Symbolism. Diamonds symbolize love, romance and commitment, yet we must track rough diamonds from their mines to the marketplace to ensure the funding of each stone is not used for unlawful uprisings.
- Kimberley Process. Kimberley Process Certification Scheme in 2003. This process follows diamonds from their mines to the market. The Kimberley Process certification thoroughly traces diamonds back to their origins, and they can then be considered conflict-free with regard to organized rebellions.
- Gemstone History. A new, or newly manufactured, diamond ring with accent gemstones such as rubies, emeralds or sapphires, may have a certified conflict-free diamond, however beware the accompanying gemstones could have a tainted history.
- Ethical Purchase. Because it is so difficult to ensure that any modern diamonds or gemstones are absolutely conflict-free, many conscientious buyers are turning to antique rings and vintage gemstones. This ensures your ring will truly have ethical and conflict-free origins.
