A “Conflict-free” diamond is not a guarantee that it was ethically sourced. A conflict diamond or “blood diamond” is narrowly defined in the Kimberley Process as a diamond that has helped finance a rebel movement against a U.N. recognized government. Heinrichs goes beyond the industry norms and guarantees that our diamonds are: free of human rights abuses, engaged in environmental stewardship, employing fair labor practices, and support sustainable community development. In order to guarantee this we have personally audited our diamond supply chain, from diamond mine to diamantaire to you.
