ETHICS and Conflict Diamonds
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

According to respect human rights and eradicate the trade in conflict diamonds, Davisgioielli Group conforms itself with the Kimbelry Process and the requirements of the World Diamond Council.

Conflict diamonds are diamonds illegally traded to fund conflict in war-torn areas, particularly in central and western Africa. The United Nations (UN) defines conflict diamonds 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." These diamonds are sometimes referred to as "blood diamonds."

All Davisgioielli Group inventories carry the following statement upon invoice: "The diamonds herein invoiced have been purchased from legitimate sources not involved in funding conflict and in compliance with United Nations Resolutions. The undersigned hereby guarantees that these diamonds are conflict free, based on personal knowledge and/or written guarantees provided by the supplier of these diamonds."
