We also love the beauty of diamonds. But what are the actual costs?
Conflict diamonds: the facts
Help us in the fight against conflict diamonds
Millions of carats of diamonds are still unethically mined every year. By “unethical” we mean the following three types of diamonds:
- Blood diamonds. These are diamonds whose profits directly contribute to the funding of rebel groups.
- Unethically obtained diamonds. These are diamonds that have been mined under very poor working conditions. To the point of inhuman conditions.
- Environmentally devastating diamonds. These are diamonds obtained from diamond mines that severely disturb the nearby living conditions of people, animals and organisms directly, indirectly or otherwise.
Each of these types of diamond produce devastating results in many different ways. This is why it is important to completely eliminate the funding, support and overall interest in these conflict diamonds.
How My Moissanite wants to improve the situation
My Moissanite sets aside 5% of its profits for a charity that exclusively improves the situation in Africa. The intention is to make these funds available to a worthy charity which focuses exclusively on improving the overall situation surrounding conflict diamonds.
We are busy looking for such a charity; We have not been able to find one yet. If you have any tips or suggestions, please contact us. In case we still haven’t been able to find a worthy charity by the beginning of 2023, we plan to set up our own charity.
Once we actively donate, we will track on this page exactly how much we have donated and to which organization. We want to keep everything 100% transparent, because we think it’s important that you can see exactly where the donation is going!
