How to Avoid Buying “Blood” Diamonds

Diamond PendantConflict or blood diamonds are making news for all the wrong reasons these days. They have become the cause of death and wars in third world countries. Many rebels and terrorist groups are willing to do anything for them that they are having higher value than human lives. However if you are concerned about the ethical issues related to the diamonds that you purchase, there are some suggestions on what you can do to avoid buying a blood diamond.

Usually the conflict diamonds originate in places like Sierra Leone, Liberia and the Democratic Republic of Congo – or smaller towns in West Africa. Before buying the stones, you can ask the diamond suppliers where the diamonds are sourced. Check if any of the above mentioned places are mentioned. Also there are chances that the diamond suppliers may be unaware of the place the diamond has come from.

These days there are diamond tracking campaigns known as the Kimberly process that provide proof of origin for all diamonds originating from these third world countries. Loose DiamondsIt records the origin of each and every diamond, shipping bulk loads of diamond which cannot be tampered with. So before you purchase the diamond, make sure to ask if it has gone through the Kimberly Process and has proper documentation. You must insist on confirmation from the dealer. Another way to avoid buying blood diamonds is to choose diamonds mined in North America. This is because Canada has terms of conduct that help to authenticate the origin of the stones. Also you can ask for the name and address of the retailer it came from, legitimate invoice and a copy of the code the jeweler follows regarding diamond sales.
