Who has not heard of “Diamonds are forever”?
Diamonds are timeless, most valuable and eternally beautiful pieces and we are all mesmerised by them. But nothing in the world is perfect and hence diamonds are no exception. They truly are a symbol of undying love and lasting commitment but at the same time, they are also the bane of some people’s existence. This ugly reality is something we all must be aware of so as to make an ethical and informed buy.
Blood diamonds also called conflict diamonds, converted diamonds, hot diamonds or war diamonds, is a term used for a diamond mined in a war zone and sold to finance an insurgency or a warlord’s activity, mainly in central and western Africa. The term CONFLICT diamond is used to label an individual diamond as having come from such an area.
Kimberley process certification system was adopted in 2003 to guard against conflict diamonds entering legitimate diamond supply chain and currently, 74 countries are following this law.
The idea of putting up this information is to spread awareness to each one of the consumers that if you buy a conflict diamond from the market, the purchase of which may have resulted due to lack of knowledge and ignorance of the crucial circumstances of war driven territories, you have just fuelled the activities of warlords and barbarists who enslave, disable and even kill people to mine those diamonds and fund their illegal activities.
