Stuller adheres to strict protocols in regards to the sourcing of both lab-grown and mined gemstones. As a natural resource, gemstones can be found almost anywhere, but they are mined, cut, and exchanged too frequently to easily collect traceable documentation of their exact source.

However, we engage in several practices to ensure the integrity of the gemstones we purchase and believe in creating an open dialogue about gemstone sourcing to be as transparent and trustworthy as possible.

Gemstone Disclosure

Stuller transparently discloses all treatments that any of our natural and/or lab-grown gemstones have undergone. We also clearly label all natural and lab-grown gemstones for easy identification.


Stuller procures the majority of its diamonds directly from suppliers that manufacture rough diamonds. Most polished diamonds originate from Canada, South Africa, Botswana, and Namibia.

Our membership with the Diamond Manufacturers and Importers Association of America (DMIA) means that we share their commitment to upholding the highest standards for ethics, integrity, and professionalism in the diamond industry. Together, we are committed to boosting consumer confidence in diamonds.

  • Exported and imported with a government-validated certificate stating the diamonds are conflict-free.
  • Transported between signatory countries in a sealed, tamper-proof container.

They are also obligated to operate in full compliance with the laws, rules, and regulations imposed by the countries in which they operate.
