Where It Comes from Matters
We take social responsibility very seriously at Alexander J. Bongiorno, Creative Jeweler. We are committed to selling precious metals and gemstones that have been mined and manufactured in harmony with the environment. We will not knowingly offer conflict diamonds for sale.
What is the Jewelry Industry Doing?
To ensure that “conflict diamonds” are not entering their national markets, more than 60 countries have adopted a system to control the export and import of rough diamonds mined from January 2003 onward. Spearheaded by Jewelers of America, International Diamond Manufacturers Association, and the World Federation of Diamond Bourses, this agreement is known as “The Kimberley Process”.
