At Nordhoff Jewellery Couture, we understand that guaranteed conflict free diamonds are important to our clients, and insist that every diamond we purchase has been through the Kimberley process.Taking that one step further we strongly believe its important to also know the origin of each diamond, to understand where it has come from, how it has been mined, cut and polished, and that all this is traceable.
For this reason, we are proud to be a Perth stockist of Origin Australia ®, where the diamonds we supply you come with certificates that track the diamond’s origins, and lot or invoice numbers to back that information, so you can be assured that the diamond has come to you through a journey of ethical hands.
We recognise and value social and responsible mining and the Argyle Diamond Mine is one of the most responsible mining producers in the world today.
