Buy Responsibly Sourced Diamonds

Diamond Store

Conflict-free is another important focus of family-owned Padis Jewelry, and are fully dedicated to supporting socially and environmentally responsible sourcing. We only buy and sell diamonds from carefully selected suppliers who adhere to strict labor and environmental standards and are able to demonstrate a complete chain of custody for their gemstones.

For example, one of our collections of loose diamonds and diamond jewelry is from an industry leader in responsible sourcing. Forevermark™, part of the De Beers Group of Companies, not only sells some of the world’s most exquisite diamonds but is committed to selling diamonds that have been responsibly sourced throughout their entire journey.

In fact Forevermark sourcing standards go beyond the international certification established in 2003 by the Kimberley Process. This certification process was designed to “stop the trade in ‘conflict diamonds’ and ensure that diamond purchases were not financing violence by rebel movements and their allies seeking to undermine legitimate governments.” Forevermark’s stricter standards include looking at the individual mines and mining companies along with the country of origin in terms of human rights, the political climate and the socio-economic situation.

Another significant outreach by Forevermark has been to give back to the women and children of each community they do business in. These activities include supporting women in small businesses as well as providing education, training, and healthcare. The De Beers Group of Companies has also set aside 444,490 acres around their mines for conservation which includes a Game Park and a Rhino sanctuary.

We are proud to offer our customers diamonds from a company that is committed to not only supplying the world with the most beautiful diamonds, but doing it with integrity. Please visit our showrooms to see our large selection of certified loose diamonds and diamond jewelry and wear your jewelry with pride!

Padis Jewelry, a family-owned business, has been a trusted source for buying exquisite certified loose diamonds, engagement rings and fine jewelry since 1974. We are one of the only jewelers in the area that offers such an exclusive selection of top names in the industry as well as such a large inventory.
