Borsheims has long been active in the supply chain of the gem and jewelry industries. Borsheims mandates that all of our suppliers ensure their product is from conflict-free sources and mined in the most ethical way possible.
Integrity in our industry has long been associated with Borsheims. During her time at Borsheims, former President & CEO Susan Jacques was a key player in the establishment of the Kimberley Process, a certification system used to stem the flow of conflict diamonds. The Kimberley Process imposes extensive requirements to certify all diamonds shipped through its participants are conflict-free, meaning they have not been used to finance wars against legitimate governments or have aided in human rights abuses.
All of the diamonds and gemstones sold at Borsheims have come through the Kimberley Process. Borsheims requires its suppliers to sign agreements verifying that the stones Borsheims purchases are conflict-free. Borsheims tells its customers about this guarantee on the back of every sales receipt.
Borsheims is proud to help lead the way on conflict-free diamonds and gemstones and will continue working to ensure the integrity of the jewelry industry.
