Fuck DeBeers: Outsourcing And Blood Edition
Thanks to the wonders of the global economy, the majority of all diamonds, mined legitimately or not, now pass through a single city in India
. The result is that up to a quarter of all diamonds on the market are blood diamonds. And nobody can tell which are which.
The issue is that the polishers in Surat really don't care where their stones are from, and are more than happy to launder stones that come through the city. Nor is anyone in any position to fix the matter. Which brings us back to square one.
So, what can you do? You can try purchasing Canadian diamonds. Or one of the lab-grown diamonds now available, perhaps with a bit of your Lab mixed in.
