We can confirm and guarantee 100% that none of our Sita Jewelry creations contain conflict diamonds. This is because our vendors adhere to the ‘Kimberly Process’. In 2000, a coalition of governments, non-governmental organizations and the diamond industry worked together to address this issue. In 2002, they established the Kimberley Process Certification System, a UN-backed process that has virtually eliminated the trade in conflict diamonds and certifies that all the diamonds received under this process are free from conflict.

Regarding The Kimberly Process:
Rough diamonds traded between KP countries. The diamonds are transported in a tamper resistant container and accompanied by a government validated KP certificate. Once imported and ready to be traded, a written statement accompanies all invoices guaranteeing that the diamonds or diamond jewelry will be sold from legitimate sources.

Regarding Conflict Diamonds:
The term ‘Conflict Diamonds’ means diamonds that are illegally traded to fund conflict. The term was made when rebels in some African countries used diamonds to fund movements against legitimate governments. When the problem was at its height, conflict diamonds accounted for only 4% of the world”s diamond supply, today it is less than 1%.

To sum up, all diamonds incorporated into Sita creations are from ‘DeBeers’ certified site holders; and as such are guaranteed to be ‘Non Conflict Diamonds’.

Sita Jewelry is also proud to be a registered member of ‘Stop Blood Diamonds.org’, an organization promoting the use of’Conflict Free’ diamonds. For more information, please view our ‘Stop Blood Diamonds’ within our ‘Education & Guidance’ Section.
