Our gemstones do not carry the stigma of conflict gems within the meaning of the Kimberley Process. They are also not degraded or sold to fund armed uprisings in war zones.
A big issue in the emerald mining industry is the problem of clandestine child labour. We do everything we can at VICORE to ensure that our gemstones come exclusively from legally recognized workplaces with no child labour.
Furthermore VICORE is committed to promoting the responsible, ethical and environmental processes within the diamond industry. Our diamonds are all conflict-free and purchased from a legitimate source adhering to the UN agreement, the Kimberley process accord.
