A Brilliant Clip for Fair Trade Diamonds and Jewelry

Watch the charismatic Martin Rapaport, Chairman of the Rapport Group talk about fair trade diamonds... why we are responsible for what we buy.

The Four Points of Fair Trade Jewellery

2] Do No Harm - The site is environmentally sound, returned to its original state, with no child labor and unsafe working conditions.

3] Fair wages to the diamond miners.

4] Give back 5% to the community where the diamonds originated.
