The Kimberley Process (KP) is a multilateral trade regime established in 2003 with the goal of preventing the flow of conflict diamonds. The core of this regime is the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS) under which States implement safeguards on shipments of rough diamonds and certify them as “conflict free". Under the terms of the KPCS participants must:
- Satisfy ‘minimum requirements’ and establish national legislation, institutions and import/export controls
- Commit to transparent practices and to the exchange of critical statistical data
- Trade only with fellow members who also satisfy the fundamentals of the agreement
- Certify shipments as conflict-free and provide the supporting certification
CARE FOR YOUR JEWELRY:
- Use warm water, detergent-free soap and a soft-bristled brush, rinsing the diamond and setting afterward to ensure there is no residue.
- Do not use steam or ultrasonic cleaners, as this can cause damage.
- Apply perfumes, creams and hair care products before wearing your gold
- To clean gold jewelry, buff gently with a dry cloth.
- Remove or cover while cleaning. Household cleaners can affect gold jewelry. Wear rubber gloves or remove your jewelry altogether when cleaning.
- Periodically have your diamond jewelry examined by professionals. With time, the setting can become loose, depending on how often it’s worn.
- When in doubt, take it off
- Insure your jewelry
