Light Masters Diamond Group, LLC fully supports the international community’s zero-tolerance policy towards conflict diamonds. Each and every Solasfera diamond is carefully tracked and upholds the strictest safeguards for ensuring social and environmental responsibility. Together with our customers, we can work towards making certain that the world’s diamond supply is 100 percent free of conflict.



In July 2000, the global diamond industry announced its zero-tolerance policy towards conflict diamonds. Since then, industry leaders have worked closely with the United Nations, world governments, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) such as Global Witness and Partnership Africa Canada to create the Kimberley Process Certification System. This system, which the industry formally adopted in 2003, guards against conflict diamonds entering the legitimate diamond supply chain. The diamond industry has also adopted a voluntary System of Warranties to assure consumers that their diamonds are from sources free of conflict.

Today 71 governments have enshrined the Kimberley Process Certification System into their laws. More than 99 percent of the world’s diamonds are now from conflict-free sources.

“Through the worldwide implementation of the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme, we have begun to fulfill the international community’s obligation to those who have suffered in Africa’s wars by banning the trade in conflict diamonds. We have eliminated conflict diamond financing in Sierra Leone and are committed to bringing the proceeds from the diamond trade to benefit the people of Sierra Leone, Angola and Liberia, as well as all other diamond producing countries such as Botswana, to help them support the economic development of their countries.”
