The De Beers Code of Origin will provide assurance “that a diamond is natural and conflict free, was discovered by De Beers in Botswana, Canada, Namibia or South Africa, and has played a direct role in De Beers’ Building Forever mission to protect the planet and improve people’s lives.” In the US and China, the program will focus on De Beers’ diamonds larger than 0.30 carats.
