THE APPLICATION OF INTERNATIONAL AGREEMENTS REGARDING THE SUPPLY OF MATERIALS, METALS, DIAMONDS AND PRECIOUS STONES

  • The precious metal content and the quality of the precious object are subject to strict, state-controlled rules. The guarantee hallmark for gold products certifies compliance with the legal titles./li>
  • For gemstones, compliance with Decree 2002-65 and the recommendations relating to the information which should be sent to all levels of the profession: their name and any processing.
  • The Kimberly Process, which ensures traceability and complicates the sale of rough diamonds from illegal sources that feed organisations which are not recognised internationally and which finance rebel movements during conflicts and civil wars, terrorising and massacring civil populations such as in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Angola or Sierra Leone (not exhaustive).
  • The Voluntary System of Warranties which strengthens this scheme beyond rough diamonds to combat the trade in conflict diamonds and which from cutting to sale, requires that a guarantee of origin with the mention “conflict free” appears on all invoices that accompany these diamonds.
