Are you familiar with the term “blood diamond” or know what a “conflict free” diamond is?
People purchase and wear diamonds all the time without understanding where the diamonds originated. Every day, the Primestylereviews site receives many pictures of newly purchased diamond jewelry and their proud, happy owners. However, most would be shocked and probably angry if they unknowingly purchased a “blood diamond”.
In the event you are not aware, a“blood diamond”, besides being a 2006 movie with the same title, is defined as a diamond mined in a war zone (primarily in some African countries) and sold to finance a violent rebellion, conflict and various diamond companies.
In 2007, Primestyle wrote an informative, detailed news article titled, “Wars That Have Been Fought Over Diamonds”. According to this article, there have also been a number of human rights violations such as beatings and other harsh punishments given to the workers.Millions of people have lost their loves over this precious jewel that often represents love and commitment.
There have been many measures in place to stop or help prevent the mining of “blood diamonds”.Some of these groups have been government and non-government organizations that were created to control the export and import of blood diamonds. Also, in 2003, the Clean Diamond Trade Act was signed into law and this is helping to promote legitimate trade. In 2011, U.S. Department of State provided a list of countries who are participating under the Clean Diamond Act of 2003.
While there are several debates about whether these measures have been successful or not, one of the best things a consumer can do is educate themselves and make wise decisions when purchasing a diamond.
