AT ALBERTA DIAMOND EXCHANGE

We sell GIA certified diamonds and guarantee that we have taken all necessary steps to ensure that every diamond we buy or sell has been ethically sourced.

CONFLICT DIAMONDS

The United Nations defines conflict diamonds (or blood diamonds as they are often called) as “…diamonds that originate from areas controlled by forces or factions opposed to legitimate and internationally recognized governments, and are used to fund military action in opposition to those governments, or in contravention of the decisions of the Security Council.”

Conflict diamonds continue to finance rebel groups’ wars against their own governments, and impose immense suffering on the innocent men, women and children forced to work as slaves extracting these diamonds in harsh and unforgiving conditions. 

THE KIMBERLEY PROCESS

The Kimberley Process (KP) is an UN-mandated agreement among governments, civil societies, and industry leaders. Established in 2000 in Kimberley, South Africa, its mission is to eliminate conflict diamonds from the global supply chain.

 

The Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS) safeguards shipments of rough (uncut) diamonds and certifies them as “conflict-free.” Each shipment carries a certificate that details where the diamonds came from, how they were mined, the parties involved, and their ultimate destination.

 

ADX only sells diamonds that have been certified and are considered “clean,” which means that the rough diamond shipment could be accurately traced from its origin to the point of import/export.
