Shipping blackout Jan 20 - Jan 31 as our inventory is on the way to AGTA show in tucson
The majority of diamonds in the supply chain today do not come with documented origin. The Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS, established in 2003) was put into place to stem the flow of conflict diamonds into the supply chain, however, the KPCS still leaves many key questions (origin, labor practices, environmental standards) unanswered.
At Misfit we believe establishing documented origin is one of the first steps to creating transparency in the diamond industry. From there we can begin to explore the working conditions, labor practices, and environmental factors involved in the extraction of these precious stones from the earth.
Over the past two years since Misfit was founded we have been working on bringing products with documented origin to market. In 2021 we launched our collections of Canadian, Australian, Russian, and African origin diamonds. By sharing our processes with the industry and our followers we hope we can educate and inspire other businesses to follow suit. The more of us requesting origin documentation from our vendors, the more we can amplify the demand for this within our industry.
