Our Commitment to Integrity and Conflict-Free Diamonds

Authenticity has always been the heart and soul of our brand. Not only do we handcraft captivating rings, but we also guarantee that every diamond used in our collection is ethically sourced and conflict-free. At Kirk Kara, integrity is one of our core values, and along with our exquisite designs and life-long customer assistance, we extend you the assurance that we not only responsibly source our stones, but give back to the people and communities involved as well.

With Earth Day approaching, we are honored to announce that we’ve recently become a Friend of DDI, also known as the Diamond Development Initiative. They are a non-profit organization created to address the social and economic issues faced by millions of artisanal diamond diggers in Africa and South America who live in poverty outside the formal economy, vulnerable to exploitation, health and safety risks and human rights abuses. It is extremely important for us to do our part to help affect change in the artisanal and small-scale diamond mining sector. This is where DDI comes in, and we are truly humbled to offer our support and be part of their cause.

For us, giving back and using diamonds that make a positive global impact is the obvious choice. Compassion, social responsibility, and interest in human rights issues is in our genes. Artin, our brand’s founder and creator of the first Kirk Kara ring, was a survivor of the Armenian Genocide who escaped when his father was killed in 1915. The first ring he handcrafted was inspired by his father’s legacy and made with love for his bride, Angel. It is essential that our designs are ethically made, representing the heart and integrity of our original craftsmenWhen you buy a Kirk Kara ring, you’re choosing to be a part of a brand that endeavors to make a difference, both in the outside world and as part of your forever love story.
