Conflict-Free Diamond Policy

Conflict-Free Diamond Policy.

House of Kanak, alongside the global diamond industry, has a zero-tolerance policy toward conflict diamonds. Through measures such as the Kimberley Process, which tracks diamonds from mine to market, the industry in partnership with the United Nations, governments, and non-governmental organizations, polices diamond exports to try & prevent the trade of illegal diamonds entering the mainstream supply chain.

At House of Kanak, we only purchase diamonds through well established, reputed & respected suppliers who, like us, proudly adhere to and enforce the standards established by the Kimberley Process.  All House of Kanak diamonds are warranted to be conflict free as re-confirmed to us by our suppliers. If one of our suppliers was ever found to be in violation of that process, we would immediately sever that relationship. We will continue to support and promote any process that attempts to uphold legitimacy in the diamond trade.

Diamonds are mined throughout the world, including major mines in Australia, Africa, Russia and Canada. Diamonds are a major source of good in many African nations, employing and providing healthcare to thousands. For more information on this issue, please visit DiamondFacts.org.

About the Kimberley Process

House of Kanak supports the Kimberley process, which is an International process to track and certify diamonds. In April 2003, congress and President Bush passed a law adopting the Kimberley Process that requires all US diamond retailers to buy diamonds from manufacturers who have documentation warranting that the merchandise was obtained through legitimate channels. Today, the US Customs Service actively enforces the Kimberley Process requirements as diamonds enter American ports. Similarly in India too adhering to the Kimberley Process is a pre-condition for import of rough diamonds for cutting & Polishing & then sale for exports or domestic consumption.
