How many of us know about the meaning of ethically sourced diamonds? Diamonds have to go through many hands before you wear it. But ever wondered that the diamond you are wearing, where it belongs? What’s the history of it? Most of us don’t even bother about it but its really a matter of concern.
No harm to the environment while the time of sourcing diamonds is important. To stop such practices it is important to know important facts about the diamond that we own.
There is a way to stop such things and we have to stay aware regarding the diamond or diamond jewelry that you own is ethical or not.
Ethically sourced Diamonds
When diamonds are mined there are few ethics to be followed which are related to fair humanitarian practices. These include wages and in what conditions the workers are working while the mining of diamonds takes place. Ethically diamonds strictly stand for no compromise when it comes to mining and the origin of diamonds.
Although the diamonds are sourced ethically, the next step of the diamond might be put into the wrong hands. Some people do wrong practices to make the process impure. Consumers must be aware of the source of their diamonds. It is really important to know that the diamonds which have been extracted from diamond mines or river beds are ethically sourced diamonds. So before buying diamonds consumers must be aware of these two things.
How to determine Ethically Sourced Diamonds?
It’s not that hard to tell that your diamond is ethically sourced or not. Ask the jeweler you are buying a diamond ring from about the KP’s Certificate before the purchase.
KP’s certificate stands for Kimberly’s Process which adheres to every rule of ethical diamonds. The reason behind KP’s foundation was to keep a check on such illegal activities in the diamond industry.
So if you want to buy diamonds or diamond rings ethically, asking for a Kimberly certificate from the jeweler is necessary.
Destroying the environment and buying diamonds doesn’t stand in KP’s rule so trusting KP’s certificate is the only valid option to determine whether your diamond is ethically sourced or not.
