Jewelers that offer "Conflict Free” diamonds are limiting themselves to the Kimberley Process' definition, which narrowly defines conflict diamonds as diamonds that finance rebel movements against recognized governments.
What this definition leaves out is large numbers of diamonds that are tainted by violence, human rights abuses, poverty, environmental degradation, and other issues.
Legami goes above and beyond the current industry standards to offer Conflict Free diamonds that have been carefully selected for their ethical and environmentally responsible origins of Canada, Botswana Sort, or Russia.
The Kimberley Certificate for each our diamonds ensures our select group of diamond suppliers demonstrate a robust chain of custody protocol for their diamonds and have the ability to track and segregate diamonds by origin.
These suppliers are required to source diamonds that originate from specific mine operations or specific countries that have demonstrated their commitment to follow internationally recognized labor, trade, and environmental standards.
