Finesse places great emphasis on the quality of our diamond inventory and the competitiveness of our pricing. But we place even greater value on sourcing verifiable origin stones that are ethically mined, procured and sold. Just like our customers, and their customers, we want to feel assured that we have done our share to uphold the integrity and fair treatment of everyone in the diamond supply chain.
We are dedicated to the proposition that any diamond we sell be procured ethically and legally from known, reputable sources. We are passionate about diamonds, but we are also passionate about ensuring that the people and communities involved in the diamond trade are treated fairly and with dignity. As part of this commitment, we are fully compliant with all conventions and treaties in place to stem the flow of conflict diamonds, including the Kimberley Process (established in 2000 to track and certify rough diamonds from point of origin to delivery), The Patriot Act and various initiatives passed by organizations such as the United Nations and World Diamond Congress.
Our promise to you is that every diamond you see on our site has been mined, manufactured and traded ethically and with respect for human rights, a commitment to protecting the environment, a pledge to deliver economic empowerment to the communities the diamonds come from and a firm position against abhorrent practices such as child labor, violence, human exploitation, and illicit armed conflict.
If you are interested in learning more about exactly how we track our diamonds to ensure they are conflict-free, please contact us.
Conflict diamonds are those that are used to finance unlawful military conflicts, or those procured as a result of systematic abuses of the people in the diamond supply chain. These abuses include violence, torture, child labor, environmental destruction and worse.
We do not condone any person or organization that knowingly trades in such stones, and we guarantee that all the diamonds we sell are conflict-free. We can make this guarantee to you because we manufacture many of our diamonds ourselves; in cases where we source them externally, we track the stone from mine to market and ensure they come from legitimate suppliers with which we have long-established commercial relationships and which are members in good standing of the diamond industry.
