Future Shop’s Official Stance Regarding “Conflict-Free” Diamonds.
All the diamonds (and jewelry pieces containing diamonds) purchased and sold by Future Shop must follow the United Nations’ Kimberley Process Certification Scheme. This ensures the diamonds are “conflict-free,” which means the stones aren’t used to finance rebel groups in their efforts to topple legitimate governments.
The Kimberley Process sets out a list of strict requirements for the participating members that include national legislation, export and import controls, and transparency around statistical data. Manufacturers operating under Kimberley Process rules in Canadian and U.S. legislation closely and accurately track, ship, and document the journey of each stone directly from its origin.
