Conflict Policy

Sheetal Impex.'s Conflict-Free Diamond Policy

At Sheetal Impex, we only purchase diamonds through the largest and most respected suppliers who, like us, proudly adhere to and enforce the standards established by the Kimberley Process. All the diamonds that we sell is certified "conflict free", assuring your that our inventory was procured through legal sources.

We comply with the Kimberly Process and various other United Nations resolutions and the diamonds we sell are obtained using legitimate means.

If one of our suppliers was ever found to be in violation of that process, we would immediately sever that relationship. We will continue to support and promote any process that works to uphold legitimacy in the diamond trade.

Conflict-Free Diamonds - Our Guarantee

Diamonds are mined throughout the world, including major mines in Australia, Africa, Russia and Canada. Diamonds are a major source of good in many African nations, employing and providing healthcare to thousands. For more information on this issue, please visit.

Conflict-free diamonds are those gems which were not obtained due to human rights abuses, child labor, violence, or environmental degradation. Although the U.N.'s Kimberly Process only covers diamonds under the control of legitimate and recognized governments, conflict-free goes one step further by rejecting diamonds from governments that trade in diamonds to bankroll their conflicts.

Blood Diamonds - Financing Death And Environmental Destruction

Through the 1990s, most of the world's diamonds came from Africa, particularly regions undergoing civil unrest. Rebel armies in parts of Africa were exploiting alluvial diamond fields to fund their wars against established governments, putting people and the environment in the middle of their conflicts. Alluvial diamonds are found just inches to a few feet below the surface, making them easier to mine, but having an adverse impact on the environment. The people working these fields were often very young and subject to exploitation, with some losing their lives or permanently maimed as wars raged around them. Hence, the term blood diamonds to describe these types of gems.

The Sheetal Impex. Initiative

At Sheetal Impex., we are doing our part to make sure that our customers receive conflict-free diamonds. Specifically, our internal guidelines exceed government requirements, an initiative that provides the following:

  • Sheetal Impex. does not purchase polished diamonds from sources which are not professional members of the diamond trade.
  • Sheetal Impex. has binding contracts with our suppliers which guarantee that the diamonds they offer to us for sale are conflict-free.

We understand that our customers care where their diamonds come from and we share that concern with you. By shopping Sheetal Impex., we strive to maintain the highest standards including sourcing diamonds from reputable providers.

Sheetal Impex., along with the global diamond industry, has a zero-tolerance policy toward conflict diamonds. Through measures such as the Kimberley Process, which tracks diamonds from mine to market, the industry in partnership with the United Nations, governments, and non-governmental organizations, polices diamond exports to prevent the trade of illegal diamonds.
