We Buy Conflict-Free Diamonds
BisouMargaux supports the efforts of countries around the world to curtail trade in conflict diamonds through The Kimberley Process (KP). Also referred to as “blood diamonds,” conflict diamonds are rough diamonds used by rebel movements to finance wars against legitimate governments. For decades rebel groups have used funds from the trade of illicit stones to support violence against the governments of Angola, Cote d’Ivoire, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Sierra Leone and others – causing untold human and economic hardship in these countries.
The Kimberley Process relies on governments, industry, and civil society to help stem the flow of conflict diamonds with requirements for certification of rough diamond shipments as conflict free. KP adherents in the supply chain from the mine to the retailer are vigilant as to the movement and trade of illegal diamonds.
