International Diamond Trading Organization 'Rapaport' recently declared that any member who would knowingly trades with the two Zimbabwe mines where laborers were killed and children enslaved shall be expelled.
That reads as if it were a James Bond movie! Wow! Thanks for the information.It is sad the end consumer appears to have no say - the report details that the diamonds have already been certified.I commend the businesses who take an ethical stand - the government shouldn't be the only police officer in the world.Tiffany took a stand on coral - excluding all real coral from their stores for the sake of the environment. I never heard others following. Consumers don't seem to really vote on anything except for price. Only price wins not the ethical stance.
