Conflict-Free Earth Mined Diamonds

It has always been incredibly important to us that we support the diamond industry in the most ethical way possible. Our natural, earth mined diamonds are conflict free and are in full compliance with the Kimberly Process. 

What is the Kimberly Process?

 The Kimberly Process is named for Kimberley South Africa’s Northern Cape province and was established by the United Nations in 2002 to help prevent conflict diamonds from entering the legal trade .  Participants in the Kimberly process must adhere to basics standards in regards to export and import of raw diamonds. Only members who comply with these basic standards are allowed to deal with one another lawfully, and international shipments or raw diamonds must be accompanied with a certificate stating its conflict free  status. At Blue River Diamonds we also have access to some of the most beautiful Canadian mined diamonds including mine tracing certificates. 

Benefits of Choosing an Earth Mined Diamond

Diamonds do good and supports the livlihood of nearly 10 million individuals world wide, while contrubuting 1.6 billion of annual benefits including jobs, education, biodiversity, and infastructure to diamond producing communities. The natural diamond industry provides educational access to 1/2 million children and funds more than 400 women-led businesses across Africa. 

The natural diamond industry is dedicated to conservation projects, ensuring protections to wolverines, grizzly bears, and caribou in the Northwest Territories and saves the lives of wild animals from going extinct. Over 1,000 square miles of land is protected by leading diamond producers in Canada and Southern Africa. 

At Blue River Diamonds our natural diamonds retain value with us. We are able to offer trade in and trade up services on all of our natural diamonds. 


Lab Grown Diamonds

Labratory grown diamonds are made from exactly the same materials as natural diamonds and are grown in a controlled environment over a short time rather than millions of years in the earth. Only very specialized equipment can differentiate between natural and lab grown diamonds. 

It's important to note that a lab grown diamond is not necessarily eco friendly and are likely to leave a large carbon footprint. They are also occassionally treated to have better color or clarity. 

Why WD Lab Grown Diamonds?

Blue River Diamonds has partnered with WD Lab Grown Diamonds, the first lab grown diamond company to be sustanibly certified by third-party SCS Global Services. Lab grown diamonds achieve full Climate Neutrality. 

Our Lab grown diamonds are also grown in the United States, are scource traced , and are grown as is, so no treatments are added to the diamonds afterwards. 

Our diamonds are also extremely price competitive. Allowing for customers to select larger carat weights, and higher grades while fitting comfortably in budget. 

Each diamond is laser inscribed, serialized, and comes with a third party gem lab grade. 

We are very transparent with our information and think it's important for customers to understand that while lab grown diamonds are a wonderful option, they are expected to not hold their value over time and therefore would not qualify for a "trade in, trade up".
