WHERE DO OUR DIAMONDS Come FROM?
For over 40 years, Motek Diamonds by IDC gets their diamonds from the most reputable and responsible sources in the world. We are proud of our diamonds and where they come from, as it is our responsibility to make sure they only come from conflict-free zones. We do not promote any unethical practices, especially those which involve conflict diamonds or unethical labor.
We cut our rough diamonds in multiple steps in our own factory in Israel, ensuring there was never any unethical labor involved in the process. After cutting the diamonds in our factory, we export them to our offices across the world while also supplying big brand jewelry stores with the highest quality diamonds and jewelry.
The Kimberley Process
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. There are currently 81 countries whom are participants of the program. Under the terms of the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme, participating states must meet ‘minimum requirements' and must put in place national legislation and institutions; export, import and internal controls; and also commit to transparency and the exchange of statistical data. Participants can only legally trade with other participants who have also met the minimum requirements of the scheme, and international shipments of rough diamonds must be accompanied by a KP certificate guaranteeing that they are conflict-free. Motek Diamonds by IDC fully complies with the kimberley process requirements. For more information, feel free to contact us.
