The setting of a diamond into a piece of jewellery can greatly enhance the stone's beauty and brilliance. There are a number of different types of settings to choose from.
Conflict diamonds is a term for rough diamonds that are used by rebel movements to finance wars against legitimate governments. The Kimberley Process is an international government initiative to stem the flow of conflict diamonds. This came into effect in 2003.
Argos requires its suppliers to confirm that to the best of their knowledge, they do not source diamonds from conflict regions. Suppliers must also ensure that there is an audit trail is in place and that the origin of the diamonds is established.

A clean diamond has a beautiful sparkle. Skin oils, soap and cosmetics can dull your diamond's natural brilliance, so to keep that dazzling shine it's advisable to keep them clean.
Store your jewellery in a clean, dry place and try not to keep pieces of diamond jewellery together as they can scratch each other and cause chipping. Instead, keep them stored in separate boxes or wrapped in tissue paper.
