Melanie Stones Genuine and Ethical Diamonds

Feelings can be mixed when it comes to diamonds.

They are the symbol of eternal love, nobility. But in our minds, they are also associated with the trade that has resulted in human rights abuses.

It was in May 2000, in Kimberley, South Africa, that the Kimberly Process (KP) began to stop and prevent the trade in "conflict diamonds".

  • The Kimberley Process brings together administrations, civil and industrial societies with the aim of reducing the existence of conflict diamonds.
  • The KP brings together 82 countries, including Canada, which has been part of it since its inception. The United States, the United Kingdom and the European Union are also part of it.
  • KP members account for approximately 99.8% of the world's rough diamond production.
  • According to the Kimberley Process, certified diamonds can only be traded between signatory countries.
  • The KP is supported by a United Nations mandate.

    The growing popularity of lab-grown diamonds, which are very similar to real diamonds, but at a lower cost, did not influence Melanie Stones in her choice to offer only genuine diamonds.

    I firmly believe that the symbolism of the "queen of stones" associated with the soul, perfection and beauty, dominates the intention of the purchaser, as long as he is reassured about his origin.
