Shining Qualities, along with the worldwide diamond industry, has a zero-tolerance policy toward conflict diamonds. Through measures such as the Kimberley Process (started in 2003), the industry alongside the United Nations, governments, and non-governmental organizations, collectively police diamond exports to prevent the trade of illegal diamonds.

At Shining Qualities, we only purchase diamonds through the biggest and most reputable manufacturers who, like us, proudly adhere to and enforce the standards established by the Kimberley Process. All Shining Qualities diamonds are warranted to be conflict free.

If one of our suppliers was ever found to be in violation of that, we would immediately end that relationship. We will continue to support and promote any process that works to uphold legitimacy in the diamond trade. Diamonds are mined throughout the globe, including major mines in Australia, Africa, Russia and Canada.

Diamonds are a major source of good in many African nations, employing and providing income and health care to thousands.
