Beyond the Kimberley Process: Diamond Protocol EstablishedLast week, Jewelers of America and other leading industry organizations released a new Diamond Source Warranty Protocol, designed as a tool that jewelry businesses can elect to use if they desire additional assurances from suppliers that diamonds are not sourced from areas they deem questionable in relation to their business' professional standards.
We encourage JA members to review the Diamond Source Warranty Protocol and its Q&A to learn more and determine if incorporating it into their inventory management makes sense for their business.
