MILLENIUM DIAMONDS

No gold-digging for me: I take diamonds! We may be off the gold standard some day”

 

– Mae West

“The Kimberley Process started when Southern African diamond-producing states met in Kimberley, South Africa, in May 2000, to discuss ways to stop the trade in ‘conflict diamonds’ and ensure that diamond purchases were not financing violence by rebel movements and their allies seeking to undermine legitimate governments.”

Conflict-free Diamonds

The concept of Conflict-free diamonds

The concept of conflict-free diamonds originated under the Kimberley Process which established a certification scheme in 2003.

 

A conflict-free diamond is one that has been supervised from it’s extraction to it’s sale on the international markets. This guarantees that it is not a blood diamond. So-called blood diamonds are rough diamonds traded by rebels to finance armed conflicts against legitimate governments. These ends up involving child exploitation.

Blood diamonds has been a growing issue in recent history, especially in the last couple of decades.

There is a growing awareness that diamonds are used to fund violence and rebel movements in the countries of origin.

 

Because children are considered an easy source of cheap labour, they are regularly employed in the diamond mining industry. It became urgent to address this issue since it was fueling wars in the countries of origin, promoting child exploitation.

The Success of clean diamond trading

The concept began at a meeting in Kimberley, Northern Cape, in May 2000. It was backed by the UN with General assembly resolution 55/56 followed by security council resolution 1459.

 

In 2003 The kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS) was created. It attempts to minimize and eradicate diamond-fuelled crimes by rebels.

Kimberley Certification ensures that diamonds commercialization is not been used to finance rebel movements.
