- We also make sure that the seller respects the Kimberley process
- The Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS) is the process established in 2003 to prevent "conflict diamonds" from entering the mainstream rough diamond market. The KPCS was introduced by United Nations General Assembly Resolution 55/56 following recommendations in the Fowler report. The process was set up "to ensure that diamond purchases were not financing violence by rebel movements and their allies seeking to undermine legitimate governments"
