Conflict Free diamonds are diamonds that have been mined and brought to the market in a controlled, recorded process. All Novori Diamonds are conflict free diamonds. Conflict diamonds, simply stated, are diamonds that are illegally traded to raise funds to finance wars particularly in Central and Western Africa where the bulk of the world’s diamonds are mined. In diamond trading markets, these diamonds are often referred to as conflict diamonds, blood diamonds, hot diamonds, or war diamonds.

Historically speaking, conflict diamonds came to the notice of the world during the conflicts in Sierra Leone during the late 1990s. At this time, market reports suggested that conflict diamonds constituted approximately 4 percent of the world's total diamond production. Fortunately much has changed for the better since then.

Diamond EarringIt is also a fact that illicit rough diamonds were used by rebels to fund wars in Angola, Liberia, Ivory Coast, the Democratic Republic of Congo and the Republic of Congo (also known as Congo Brazzaville). The redeeming news is that the trade in conflict diamonds has drastically come down to a meager 1 percent after the global diamond industry announced in July 2000 its zero tolerance policy towards conflict diamonds. The diamond industry today is committed to offering only conflict free diamonds to the market.

Strangely, the bulk of the conflict diamonds used to fund wars and bloodshed emanate from countries that are overall peaceful. The Kimberley Process Certification System that was adopted during 2003 keeps vigil over conflict diamonds intruding into the lawful diamond supply chain and to record and control conflict free diamonds as they moved to the markets of the world.

Today more than 75 governments the world over have incorporated into their respective national laws the Kimberley Process Certification System, and you can be reasonably confident that almost all of the diamonds now in the market are from conflict-free diamonds. The diamond industry coordinates with world governments, NGOs and the United Nations to strengthen the Kimberley Process and the System of Warranties. Novori Jewelry only deals with conflict-free diamonds and takes steps to ensure that all our suppliers do so.

Based on the universal respect for human dignity, the world nations realized the barbaric use the diamonds are put to and that led to an international ban on trade in rough diamonds used to finance rebellion and brutal bloodshed. But the fact remains that however sincere and effective the ban may be, there still could be some unscrupulous elements that may try to trade in conflict diamonds.

The onus is also on the buying community and every buyer of diamond should demand a certified conflict-free diamond and if this happens, diamond merchants will be forced to desist from trading in conflict diamonds. This is important to Novori Jewelry and all the suppliers we deal with.

Diamond PendantIt is therefore necessary that when you buy engagement rings to solemnize weddings and wedding rings for your partners as a symbol of eternal bonds of marital love or diamond rings for any other auspicious occasion– you should ensure that you are not deceived into buying conflict diamonds.

While buying diamond rings, you should insist on conflict-free diamonds duly certified and guaranteed that they are not obtained through the use of brutal violence, abuse of human rights, child labor, or environmental degradation. Novori Jewelry only sells conflict free diamonds.

Leading jewelers like Novori, who a reputation to defend, are deeply committed not to trade in conflict diamonds. Novori understands and fully appreciates that people invest heavily when buying diamond rings and they also buy engagement rings and wedding rings to mark some landmark events in their personal lives and therefore they ensure they trade only in untainted diamonds.
