Diamonds are a symbol of love and commitment, but unfortunately, not all diamonds are created equal. Blood diamonds, also known as conflict diamonds, are diamonds that have been mined in war zones and sold to finance armed conflict against governments. The profits from blood diamonds often fund violent and oppressive regimes, leading to human rights abuses and environmental devastation. At Novita Diamonds, we are committed to ethical sourcing and ensuring that our diamonds are conflict-free.
The issue of blood diamonds gained international attention in the 1990s and early 2000s, leading to the establishment of the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS) in 2003. The KPCS is a joint initiative between governments, industry, and civil society that aims to prevent the trade of conflict diamonds. It requires that all rough diamonds be certified as conflict-free and traceable from the mine to the market. However, the effectiveness of the KPCS has been criticized, with some loopholes in the system that allow conflict diamonds to slip through the cracks.
At Novita Diamonds, we go above and beyond the KPCS requirements to ensure that our diamonds are ethically sourced. We only source diamonds from reputable suppliers who adhere to strict ethical standards and are committed to responsible mining practices. We also offer a range of lab grown diamonds, which are an eco-friendly and conflict-free alternative to mined diamonds.
Choosing ethically sourced diamonds is not only the right thing to do from a moral standpoint, but it also ensures that you are getting a high-quality diamond that you can feel good about wearing. Our diamonds are of the highest quality and come with certification from reputable labs such as GIA and IGI.
