Where Do Our Diamonds Come From31

GABA Diamonds sources the finest diamonds from all over the world and sells only diamonds that are 100% conflict-free.

What is a Conflict Diamond?

Conflict diamonds are rough, uncut diamonds used by rebel movements or their allies to finance armed conflict aimed at undermining legitimate governments. In 1998, the Non-Government Organisation (NGO) Global Witness brought to the world’s attention the fact that rebel groups were funding their war against the legitimate government in this way.

Our sources have been working with governments through the United Nations and other international organizations to ensure that future conflicts cannot be funded in this way, and many companies such as the De Beers Group were instrumental in creating the World Diamond Council to represent the international diamond and jewellery industry in the Kimberley Process.
