Certificate Check

Guaranteed conflict-free Diamonds

We are proud to take the necessary care and responsibility to ensure that every diamond we sell comes from conflict-free sources. Diamonds purchased from Centaura Diamonds are guaranteed to be conflict-free, and sourced in accordance with the Kimberley process and the applicable UN legislation.

We hand-pick our diamond suppliers and cutters in accordance with our own strict internal guidelines. Among other stipulations, our suppliers and cutters must be members of the world’s leading diamond exchange (Sightholder), must be socially and environmentally responsible, and must strictly follow the Kimberley process. Regular checks ensure that so-called “blood diamonds” are excluded.

Conflict diamonds, also known as blood diamonds, are diamonds sold to finance armed conflicts, civil war, and terrorism. In 2002, the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme was created. The Kimberley process is a system of records and certifications which follow each diamond from its original raw condition all the way to its final destination as a cut diamond. Public awareness of “conflict diamonds” was heightened with the release of the hit film “Blood Diamond” starring Leonardo DiCaprio.
