Governance and ethics
We are committed to governance and ethics excellence, ensuring that good corporate citizenship is embedded throughout the business. We understand that while our diamonds are exceptionally beautiful, their value is also determined by how they are mined. As such, we supply rough and polished diamonds that are produced and distributed in accordance with the highest ethical and legal standards.
