Responsibly
Sourced

Our values as a company are all about responsibility – to our customers, our teams around the world, to those who purchase and cherish our diamonds and, of course, to the environments from where our diamonds are sourced. To achieve this, we insist all of our diamonds are not only beautiful but are also responsibly sourced and contribute economically to the communities in which they are made.

At the forefront of the industry

We at Leo Schachter Diamonds have been at the forefront of responsible sourcing in the diamond and jewelry supply chain and we have been members of the Responsibility Jewelry Council for over ten years.

This means we are strongly committed to and are independently audited against the RJC Code of Practices (COP) – an international standard on responsible business practices for diamonds and jewelry. This COP addresses human rights, labor rights, environmental impact, mining practices, product disclosure and many more important topics in our supply chain.

We are also strong supporters and members of Diamonds Do Good, a global organization whose mission is to support initiatives that develop and empower people in diamond communities worldwide. The Diamonds Do Good mission is to inspire consumers with the great stories behind diamonds.

Every supplier we work with is asked to sign our Leo Schachter Supplier Protocols. This agreement demands of every supplier with whom we work that they maintain the highest standards in supply chain management, ensuring that all diamonds are ethically sourced.

Our Commitments

Empowering Our Communities

For nearly 25 years, the Leo Schachter Diamond factory in Molepolole, Botswana has provided valuable careers, community support, professional development, medical care and economic stability to the community we share. It’s part of our conscious effort to make a lasting, positive impact through our diamonds by empowering others to achieve financial independence and live richer, fuller, more rewarding lives. We have since expanded this commitment to several additional communities both locally and throughout the world, further providing economic opportunities and brighter futures for our neighbors.

Ethically Sourced and Responsibly Mined

Every mined diamond from Leo Schachter Diamonds is ethically sourced, coming from conflict-free world class mines that adhere to the highest social, environmental and quality practices, principles and standards of the Kimberley Process. These are values we strongly uphold, and something each of our customers would expect from Leo Schachter Diamonds.
