Diamond Importers and Conflict-Free Diamonds
Zachary's Jewelers Diamond Importers
Zachary's Jewelers has been importing diamonds directly from Israel, South Africa and India for more than 10 years. From 1985 to 1989, Zachary's Jewelers laid the groundwork for its importing business in the mining fields of The Ivory Coast. Through many contacts made at this level, Zachary's Diamond Importers began establishing relationships with diamond cutting facilities and manufactuers worldwide.
Zachary's Jewelers currently deals directly with DeBeers siteholders in Israel, South Africa, India and the United States. Because of these relationships, Zachary's is able to remove the middleman and offer more competitive pricing to our customers.
Conflict Free Diamonds
Diamonds are meant to be a gift of love, and we at Zachary's abhor the way in which some gems have been used to fund conflict.
To stop this practice, governments, our industry and human rights groups created the Kimberley Process in 2002, which today regulates 99% of the rough diamond supply, to prevent the sale of conflict diamonds.
We require all of our suppliers to provide an official written warranty that their diamonds come from Kimberley-certified sources and thus are not involved in funding conflict. The Warranty Statement reads:
The diamonds herein invoiced have been purchased from legitimate sources not involved in funding conflict and in compliance with United Nations Resolutions. The seller hereby guarantees that these diamonds are conflict free, based on personal knowledge and/or written guarantees provided by the supplier of these diamonds.
