Transparency throughout the supply chain is highly important to us.
We trace the entire process from the diver to your hand. Knowing the origin of your diamond is really important to us, so each one is gifted with a Certificate of Provenance specifying the country of origin and the coastal area from where it has been retrieved.
We work with local, professional divers in Namibia and South Africa and are proud to reassure that our diamonds are retrieved from the ocean in a responsible manner.
Comparable to inshore fishing, the boats are small and they dive close in to the shore. Patience is key as the divers wait for calm conditions in order that they are safe and the seabed is settled. This only occurs a few times a month which contributes to the sustainability of the process.
The divers have extensive knowledge of the ocean so they know exactly where to discover the diamonds and they can avoid unnecessary disturbance to the seabed, bringing the diamonds to the surface with minimal trace.
Much of the equipment on the boats is made by local people and our cut diamonds are certified by the GIA and cut in Johannesburg to keep as many processes within the local economy.
100% of our diamonds are conflict free and adhere to the Kimberley Process. The Kimberley process is an international certification which regulates the trade of rough diamonds. Its standards and process prevent the trade of conflict diamonds.
Ocean Diamonds uses 100% recyclable packaging. We are mindful of our choices and we are constantly striving to improve our practises.DISCOVER MORE ABOUT WORKING WITH US
