Conflict Free Diamond Sourcing


We at Borthwick Jewelry are very concerned about how we buy our diamonds. Jewelers did not know there was civil wars happening in Africa in the 1990's and we were as shocked as everybody to learn about blood diamonds. We do everything in our power to buy conflict free diamonds


Many people in Africa work for legitimate diamond miners and make a good living for their families.  The global diamond industry employs some 10 million people directly and indirectly all over the world, including Africa. The vast majority of the world's diamonds come from sources that use the revenues generated by diamonds to aid their national development. Given good governance and appropriate laws, diamonds are a vital source of revenue for building infrastructure and essential social services such as hospitals and schools.


Here is proof that our three biggest vendors sell conflict free diamonds


  • Stuller- Stuller sources the majority of its diamonds directly from sources that manufacture rough diamonds from Canada, South Africa, Russia, Botswana and Namibia.
    No Conflict Diamonds:
    We are committed to selling diamonds ethically and with integrity, giving you confidence in the diamonds you purchase. We believe it is completely unacceptable to tolerate conflict diamonds and/or human suffering in any way and we fully support the Kimberley Process. Stuller Inc. offers this commitment to you. In turn, it can act as your commitment to your customers. All rough and polished diamonds sold by Stuller Inc. comply with the Kimberley Process. The Kimberley Process ensures that rough diamonds are:

    • Exported and imported with a government validated Kimberly Process certificate stating the diamonds are conflict-free.

    • Transported between signatory countries in a sealed and tamper-proof container.

    • Sold with a statement from the seller (known as a warranty) on all invoices guaranteeing that the diamonds being sold are conflict-free.
