TEN

THINGS

YOU

NEVER

KNEW

ABOUT

DIAMONDS

Before there was life, there were diamonds.
Diamonds were formed between

 1 – 3 BILLION
years ago,

as deep as

100 MILES
below

the earth’s surface.
Diamonds are the oldest thing most
of us will ever own or even hold.

Diamonds are uniquely beautiful.
Like snowflakes,

NO TWO
DIAMONDS
are alike

Diamonds are rare and getting rarer. The last significant discovery of diamonds was almost

20
years ago

and only approximately

50
locations

around the world were found to contain diamonds viable for commercial mining. In 1 ton of rock, called kimberlite, you would be lucky to find 1 carat of diamond.

Natural colored diamonds are the rarest.
There is a

1 in 10,000
chance

that a diamond will possess a natural color;
whether that color is pink, yellow, blue,
brown, gray or any shade in between.

Globally more than

10 MILLION
people

are supported by the diamond industry.

TEN

THINGS

YOU

NEVER

KNEW

ABOUT

DIAMONDS

The Greeks and Romans believed diamonds were the tears of the gods and remnants of fallen stars. Romans also placed diamonds at the tip of

CUPID’S
Arrow,

which is one of the earliest associations to love.

More than

99%
of diamonds

are now from conflict-free sources
and are tracked under
the UN mandated Kimberley Process
since its inception in

2000.

Diamonds create employment opportunities for mine workers and help them to not only make a good salary, but also obtain healthcare,

create a
BETTER
HOME

environment and provide education for their children.

The world’s leading mining companies take major steps to help maintain and protect the

ENVIRONMENTS
and
WILDLIFE

that surround their mines. Mine Closure Plans are approved years before a mine opens to ensure the land and communities benefit long after the mine closes.

Because of their age and origin,
diamonds are scientists’ closest source
to the center of the earth and provide
clues to what the earth was like

2 BILLION
years ago.
