Look For Conflict-free Logo: Identify Jewelers Committed To Fighting The Conflict Diamond Trade By John Caldwell There is a new way to identify online stores that deal only with “clean” diamonds. To find out in a glance whether an online jewelry store sells conflict-free Diamonds");
only, costumers just need to look for a StopBloodDiamonds logo on the site’s homepage. Consumers are urged to buy only from stores with this logo since the logo serves as a guarantee that the online store do not sell conflict or blood diamonds.
The StopBloodDiamonds logo means that the online jewelry store sporting it is a member of the newly launched website, www.stopblooddiamonds.com. StopBloodDiamonds.com is a website whose members are composed of jewelers and jewelry store owners that adhere to the website’s policy of not buying or selling Diamonds");
that do not carry warranties declaring them to be conflict-free. StopBloodDiamonds.com policies are in accordance to the policies and guidelines laid out by the Kimberly Process.

store owners to sign up for membership at the Stop Blood Diamonds");
