The Divine Solitaires Conflict-Free Diamond Policy
Divine Solitaires, along with the global diamond industry, has a zero-tolerance policy
toward conflict diamonds. Through measures such as the Kimberley Process, which tracks
diamonds from mine to market, the industry in partnership with the governments, and
non-governmental organizations, policies diamond exports to prevent the trade of illegal
diamonds. At Divine Solitaires, we only purchase diamonds through the largest and most
respected suppliers who, like us, proudly adhere to and enforce the standards established by
the Kimberley Process. All Divine Solitaires diamonds are warranted to be conflict free. If
one of our suppliers was ever found to be in violation of that process, we would immediately
serve 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 world, including
major mines in Australia, Africa, Russia and Canada. Diamonds are a major source of good in
many African nations, employing and providing healthcare to thousands. For more information

About the Kimberley Process
Divine Solitaires supports the Kimberley process, which is an International process to track
and certify diamonds.
Concerning Zimbabwe Diamonds
Divine Solitaires is committed to ensuring that the highest ethical standards are observed
when sourcing our diamonds and jewelry. Because of the reported human rights abuses in
Zimbabwe’s Marange diamond district, Divine Solitaires will not purchase or offer diamonds
from that area. As a responsible member of the diamond and jewellery industry, we are
working with our suppliers to ensure our consumers receive only the finest goods procured
from ethical sources.
