Designs by Flora only purchases diamonds approved through the Kimberley Process.
The Kimberley Process stems the flow of conflict diamonds — rough diamonds used by rebel movements to finance wars against legitimate governments. The trade in these illicit stones has been virtually stopped by the global participation of diamond miners, cutters, and retailers in the Kimberly Process for the past 12 years.
The Kimberley Process imposes extensive requirements to certify shipments of rough diamonds as ‘conflict-free’ and conscience clear. In a global business like jewelry, we feel that our commitment to community extends to the world community. Designs by Flora’s participation in the established protocols assures you that all providers of our loose diamonds adhere to this “conflict-free” process.
