Nungu Diamond (Pty) Ltd holds a Diamond Beneficiation license; issued by the South African Diamonds and Precious Metals Regulator (SADPMR).
The Diamond Beneficiation license permits Nungu Diamonds to purchase rough diamonds from diamond mining companies and/or from any diamond supplier that is accredited or endorsed by the SADPMR and complies with the Kimberley Process. This guarantees that Nungu Diamonds only trades in conflict-free natural diamonds.
Nungu Diamonds seeks to change the world-diamond-narrative by refocusing the diamond consumer back to the reason ‘why’ we have diamonds; the source of each diamond’s origin, the diamond’s provenance. With each diamond we sell, our clients become co-authors in the individual stories of each diamond mined, cut, polished and set in bespoke jewellery. Each diamond as individual and unique as the individual customer that wears it!
Integrity is the cornerstone on which Nungu Diamonds has built itself into a supplier-of-choice for each one of our clients, seeking an authentic diamond experience. With Provenance, Substance and Authenticity as our core value drivers, every Nungu Diamond sold provides the answer to the ’why’ behind the purchase. "
