ABOUT CONFLICT DIAMONDS

R.W. DIAMOND BROKER, ETHICAL, HONEST.

DIAMONDS FROM SAFE SOURCES.

Formed in 2000, the Kimberly Process (KP) is a binding agreement among governments, civil society and industry leaders to remove conflict diamonds from the global supply chain.

Membership imposes extensive requirements on every participant including adherence to the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS) that both safeguards the shipment of rough diamonds and certifies them as conflict-free.

       R.W. Diamond Broker™ adheres to these policies: 

  • to trade only with companies that include warranty declarations on their invoices; to not buy diamonds from suspect sources or unknown suppliers, or which originate in countries that have not implemented the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme

  • to not buy diamonds from any sources that, after a legally binding due process system, have been found to have violated government regulations restricting the trade in conflict diamonds

  • to not buy diamonds in or from any region that is subject to an advisory by a governmental authority indicating that conflict diamonds are emanating from or available for sale in such region, unless diamonds have been exported from such region in compliance with the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme

  • to not knowingly buy or sell or assist others to buy or sell conflict diamonds

  • to ensure that all company employees who buy or sell diamonds within the diamond trade are well informed regarding trade resolutions and government regulations restricting the trade in conflict diamonds.

WHAT ARE THE 4 C'S

Beautiful. Rare. Cherished. Each diamond is unique and is a miracle of time, place, and change. And each has specific qualities that establish its value.


Until the middle of the twentieth century, there was no agreed-upon standard by which diamonds could be judged. GIA created the first, and now globally accepted standard for describing diamonds: Color, Clarity, Cut, and Carat Weight. Today, the 4Cs of Diamond Quality is the universal method for assessing the quality of any diamond, anywhere in the world. The creation of the Diamond 4Cs meant two very important things: diamond quality could be communicated in a universal language, and diamond customers could now know exactly what they were about to purchase. The Four videos below cover each of the 4's

WHAT ARE CERTIFIED DIAMONDS

Many diamonds are certified by a laboratory, the laboratory will assess the diamond and give their opinion on all the factors of the diamond.  They will measure each angle and check each character of the diamond.  The four c's and all the above-mentioned factors will be assessed, analyzed, and put into a report.  
A laboratory certification adds value to the diamond and gives an impartial judgment of the diamond and all of its characteristics.  There are many different laboratories that can assess and provide a report, GIA is the most renowned certification laboratory.  EGL USA is also acceptable. However, diamonds graded by EGL international (Certificates not done in the USA) may be over-graded and not accurate.
