OUR DIAMONDS ARE CONFLICT-FREE
Conflict Diamonds are uncut or rough diamonds used by African rebel movements or their allies to finance conflict aimed at undermining legitimate governments. Thankfully, the number of conflict diamonds have always been very small.
Bicknells never knowingly source diamonds that we believe have come from these combat zone's which have fuelled and funded a civil war and gross abuses against the civilian population. Any of our diamonds sourced from Africa have the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS) as proof that they are conflict-free.
