Sustainability Rated Diamonds are tracked through a verified origin traceability process that provides 99.9% accuracy of the origin of each diamond through its entire chain of custody, from producer to point of sale.
Five Pillars of Sustainability Rated Diamonds
1. Origin Traceability
3. Climate Neutrality
Sustainability Rated Diamonds are certified on their journey toward achieving full Climate Neutrality – produced in a manner that mitigates both current annual climate pollutants and past (“legacy”) greenhouse gas emissions still affecting the climate.
2. Ethical Stewardship
Each diamond is certified to adhere to twelve core ethical principles aligned to the strictest internationally recognized norms of business integrity.
4. Sustainble Production
Sustainability Rated Diamond producers are committed to the principle of doing no harm to humans or environment, and are actively working to avoid, eliminate or offset any impacts that might be associated with the production process.
Third Party Certification
Independent assessment of diamonds and determination of Sustainability Ratings is conducted by SCS Global Services, a recognized pioneer and leader in third-party sustainability certification and standards for nearly four decades.
Each certified diamond is accompanied by a detailed certificate explaining how its sustainability rating was earned, including origin traceability, compliance in ethical and environmental requirements, progress in climate neutrality and other production-related impacts, and sustainability investments.
Diamond Origin Confidence
The SCS0007 Certification standard incorporates revolutionary testing technology that can trace a diamond back to its source. This testing is backed up by a series of cross-checks throughout the chain of custody, including laser inscription and random sampling ensuring your diamond comes from a well-known, highly reputable source.
