Our Diamonds

All our diamonds are acquired through legitimate sources that are not involved in funding conflict and in compliance with the United Nations Resolutions.

What are Conflict Diamonds?
Conflict Diamonds are diamonds which are illegally traded to fund conflict.

The United Nations defines conflict diamonds as: "Diamonds that originate from areas controlled by forces or factions opposed to legitimate and internationally recognised governments"

What has been done about conflict diamonds?

The diamond industry, governments, non-governmental organisations and the United Nations adopted the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme to help eliminate the trade of conflict diamonds. Conflict free diamonds are transported in a tamper-resistant container and must be accompanied by a government-validated Kimberley Process Certificate.

Hamptons Jewellers insists that all our suppliers ensure that any diamonds are conflict free.
