The jewelers we work with in Ireland and Scotland subscribe to ethical diamond policies and use only conflict-free diamonds.
A conflict diamond (also called a blood diamond, hot diamond, or war diamond) refers to a diamond mined in a war zone & sold to finance an insurgency, an invading army's war efforts, or a warlord's activity, usually in Africa where around two-thirds of the world's diamonds are extracted. These diamonds are often mined by children who are subject to violence, hence the term "blood diamond.
