The Kimberley Process
Ulysse Nardin applies control systems arising from the Kimberley Process, which fights against 'conflict diamonds'.
All the diamonds purchased by the Brand comply with the World Diamond Council System of Warranties bound up with the Kimberley Process.
The Kimberley Process places strict requirements on its member countries through official certificates, so as to check the provenance, exports and imports of rough diamonds.
Once cut, diamonds are accompanied by a declaration defined by the World Diamond Council System of Warranties, which must feature on all cut diamond invoices: "The diamonds herein invoiced have been purchased from legitimate sources not involved in funding conflict and in compliance with United Nations resolutions. The seller hereby guarantees that these diamonds are conflict free, based on personal knowledge and/or written guarantees provided by the supplier of these diamonds."
