The term “conflict free”, means free of violence. If you are truly looking for conflict free jewelry than the jewelry should have been obtained free from any bloodshed, child labor. It should be obtained from an area where workers earn a fair wage. Many retailers in the jewelry industry state that their jewelry or diamonds are conflict free. This usually is not the case. Typically what they are stating is that their jewelry did not finance any rebel group. The ugly truth of this is that most diamonds that are considered conflict free are not. Most workers who mine for natural diamonds are abused, tortured, raped, or under forced labor. ECO Diamond jewelry is completely free of any conflict. Our stones are made in a lab, which does not involve mining at all. Our gold is obtained from purified recycled gold.
