It never mattered much to the mainstream trade that, as this article in Foreign Policy points out, up to 30% of all diamonds come from the black market, a KPSC certificate is as easy to forge as an old driver’s license, or that diamond cutting is often done with child labor. The “conflict free” narrative took care of all that.

Marc Choyt | Sep 21, 2018 | Ethical Jewelry Expose
An estimated 3.7 million people have died in wars funded by diamonds. Millions more around the world are being poisoned by mercury from gold mining, destroying the environment just so they can scrape by to survive in their destitute lives. All this is in the name of luxury products and love symbols.
