DIAMOND DEVELOPMENT INITIATIVE

We are partners of the Diamond Development Initiative and appointed to assist with the import of the first batch of Ethically Sourced Fair Trade Development Diamonds™

These goods will be mined according to the Development Diamond Standards™.

From point of import to polished sales the supply chain is audited by the Jeweltree Foundation.


The purpose of the Development Diamond Standards™ scheme is:

To help ensure that the most vulnerable group of diamond miners (artisanal miners) are both enabled to follow ethical and sustainable mining practices and that their communities benefit from their responsibly produced artisanal diamonds.

The standards are not just about helping these communities. They are about empowering and enabling miners to have an independently verifiable certification system in place for clearly defined responsible mining.

Scope:

Artisanal mined diamonds make up for an estimated 15% of the diamonds in the global jewellery supply chain.
Approximately 1.2m people are working in this sector, most of which in Africa.
Open Source Minerals, Jeweltree Foundation and DDI are cooperating in formalizing this sector and giving better opportunities to those working there.
