I’ve heard that no diamonds are truly guaranteed conflict free unless they come from Canada, I think they’re called Polar Bear diamonds. All of the jewellery stores say that their diamonds are conflict free, but if they come through Antwerp there is no guarantee where it is they’ve come from, all of the diamonds get mixed together and sold in lots by size. Since Blood Diamond.. mmm Leo.. all of the stores just say that they’re conflict free so consumers keep buying… it’s pretty shady business if you ask me.

If you want to educate women on conflict free diamonds, tell them to buy vintage/heirloom pieces!  Doesn’t create a market for conflict diamonds, and is eco friendlier than Canada diamonds!

@Nerdette:i think you may have heard that no diamond is conflict free unless it’s from canada because those who sell canadian diamonds WANT the consumers to think this. diamonds come from india, israel, and even some regions in africa that are conflict free. in fact, since the kimberly process, 99% of diamonds are in fact conflict free see here: http://www.diamondfacts.org/conflict/index.html
