System of Warranties

The System of Warranties (SoW), mandatorily affixed to all invoices or memos, activates each time a diamond - whether rough or polished, loose or set in jewellery - is transferred between parties. It serves as a corporate assurance that the sourced diamond complies with the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS), aligning with globally recognised standards for human and labour rights, anti-corruption, and anti-money laundering practices. The SoW is a cornerstone of corporate responsibility in the diamond trade, embodying a commitment to ethical sourcing and transparent business operations. 

The World Diamond Council (WDC) last updated its SoW terms in 2018. All ecosystem members are bound by the terms of the SoW when trading diamonds and should take the following steps as per WDC guidelines: 

  1. Download a copy of the guidelines and register on the SoW website
  2. Complete the SOW self-assessment and download a copy of the submission
  3. Include the SoW warranty statement on all invoices and memos
  4. Keep a record of all SoW mandated transactions
  5. Update online registration and complete self-assessment on regular basis.
