The AWDC is the coordinating body for the Antwerp diamond sector. The AWDC has been a fervent supporter of MY FAIR DIAMOND right from the word ‘go’, and has provided a great deal of advice and encouragement!

“MY FAIR DIAMOND shares the same values as the Antwerp diamond industry at large. We both want the industry to evolve towards more ethical, transparent practices. Innovative business models such as MY FAIR DIAMOND live up to the standards of the new mindful consumer that wants more than just ‘conflict free’ diamonds. Diamonds should contribute to sustainable socio-economic development. This is what MY FAIR DIAMOND does: a positive impact, fostering respect.
We are pleased to have participated in the creation of the first jewel collection.”
“While certification brings pride to miners and to their communities, selling Maendeleo diamonds validates their efforts, especially when the prices produce good incomes. Collaboration with CAP Source allows DDI to pursue its goal of transformation of the artisanal mining sector by providing miners with access to markets and opportunities.”
Dorothée Gizenga, Directrice de DDI
The DDI is an NGO based in Canada that has been operating in the field of artisanal African mines for more than 10 years. Supported and encouraged by the world’s leading diamond companies in her work with mining communities, Dorothée Gizenga and her team have backed the MY FAIR DIAMOND project since the beginning, accompanying CAP source on its visits to sites in Sierra Leone to facilitate exchanges with local miners. CAP source and the DDI are very proud to have jointly concluded the first successful sale of Maendeleo diamonds in Koidu.
The Foundation for Future Generations
is exclusively dedicated to the transition of our society towards a sustainable development mode.
As a platform for transformative philanthropy, it enables its partners, patrons and donors to invest in future generations.
“By financing CAP source, the Foundation for Future Generations aims to contribute to the emergence of sustainable supply chains that reflect its 360° approach to sustainability, both ambitious and wide-ranging.”
Director of the Foundation
for Future Generations
CAP source is a member of the Responsible Jewellery Council, an initiative of the jewellery sector with private, public and non-profit members that span the entire production chain, from mine to retail. Being a member involves complying with a code of ethical good practices and publishing transparent information on its suppliers and customers according to a ‘chain of custody’ approach.
With this project, CAP source is probably the first player to offer a guarantee of ethics and transparency across the artisanal diamond chain.
MY FAIR DIAMOND is the result of a collaboration between CAP source and several partners of choice. It is a collaborative brand, where the names and faces of each are known and appreciated for their contribution to the emergence of unique jewelery.
The MY FAIR DIAMOND adventure is supported by various players in the diamond and jewellery community.
CAP source and MY FAIR DIAMOND thank the many people who gave their time, information, encouragement and ideas to help turn this project into a jewellery collection, just for you. If you too would like to get involved, then please contact us.
