Important Information When Viewing Diamonds
Conflict diamonds or 'blood diamonds' are diamonds that have been used by rebel groups to fund armed conflict and civil war.
In countries such as Sierra Leone and Angola, the sale of some diamonds have been used to fuel brutal wars through the purchasing of
arms and resulting in human rights abuse.
Many people in those war torn countries have been put into slavery and are forced to harvest diamonds. Miners in these countries can
earn less than a dollar a day.
It's not where the diamond come from that matters, its how they are mined and whether they are mined officially. The KIMBERLEY process
ensures that diamonds are mined officially and is instrumental in improving conditions for the mining community.
www.Perfectring.ie has a 'no blood diamond' policy. Only diamonds with a solid audit trail back
to its source are displayed on this site.
Perfectring.ie would like you to consider the origins of your diamond when viewing engagement rings or diamond rings. Such a symbolic piece
of jewellery should not indirectly assist human rights abuse.
