Diamonds for Peace

For thousands of years diamonds have acted as symbols of love, commitment, and prosperity. Now, diamonds can also act as a symbol of peace.

Make a Statement

In 2003, Day’s created our Diamonds for Peace fund designed to help those in need in our local communities. Day’s pledges $10 to this fund for every loose and mounted diamond sold. Day’s Diamonds for Peace continually contributes to organizations that help to make the communities where we do business healthier, stronger, more accepting, smarter, and safer.

The Kimberley Process

Efforts like these in the past few years have made diamonds the primary source of funding for good jobs, higher education, accessible health care, environmental protection, and continental infrastructures in Africa. Diamonds are now the modern day “Robin Hood” for many nations with money being taken from the wealthiest countries in the world and redistributed to those most in need.

Sadly, some groups have found ways to turn something as aesthetically and emotionally beautiful as a diamond into a black market commodity used to fund wars against legitimate governments and commit atrocities against innocent people. At Day’s we are sickened by this and vow to do all that we can to make sure all of our diamonds are free-trade.

In 2003, Day’s President and VP of Merchandising visited Washington DC to encourage US Congressional Delegates to enact an embargo on the trade of illicit “conflict diamonds.” Thankfully, their efforts were successful and the embargo, known as the Kimberley Process, was adopted. Now the United States and 60 other countries adhere to this regulatory program.

However, this embargo alone is not enough. Day’s not only strictly follows the Kimberly Process but has also reinforced the process's weak spots by partnering with a diamond supplier who takes free-trade diamonds very seriously.
