Best Practices

For over 35 years, we have built our business on integrity and trust. The cornerstone of our success is our assurance to our retail partners and diamond buying public that our diamonds are not only authentic and natural, but also sourced from legitimate, "conflict-free" mines around the world. DeBeers' Diamond Trading Company, one of our major rough diamond suppliers - demands our full compliance with global Diamond Best Practice Principles, the highest standards in the industry.

The Best Practice Principles require that any treatments applied to the finished diamond must be fully disclosed, and that synthetics are not traded as natural diamonds. Furthermore, they establish business practice standards to ensure that diamonds supplied by those committed to the Principles are "conflict free." Diamonds are the natural symbol of love. It is our job to make sure our diamond products reflect positive values and integrity, and therefore public trust. We take this responsibility very seriously. By protecting you, our retailers and suppliers, we look forward to the development of our own business.
