Diamonds Do Good is committed to empowering communities in which natural diamonds are sourced, and sharing those stories of positive impact. They have been making an impact in the diamond industry since their start in 2007.

"I am honored to be invited to join the Board of Diamonds do Good. I have seen the positive impact Diamonds Do Good has on the natural diamond communities, and am proud be a part organization that gives back to and supports the communities that are an essential part of our industry" Debbie Azar states.
"I'm thrilled Debbie has joined the board. Her proven leadership and commitment to the industry are key assets for our organization" says Rebecca Foerster, President of Diamonds Do Good and Alrosa U.S.A.
Earlier this month Diamonds Do Good has launched a unique initiative inviting designers from around the world to participate in creating a new signature bracelet that defines the organization. "Diamonds Do Good was inspired by The Honorable Nelson Mandela whose legacy shines as a beacon of hope and healing. We want this next generation bracelet to be a symbol of all our hopes and dreams," says Diamonds Do Good co-founder and renowned civil rights advocate Dr. Benjamin F. Chavis Jr. Echoing Chavis' aspirations, Diamonds Do Good encourages Black, Indigenous and Multicultural designers to participate in the initiative.

Diamonds Do Good was founded in 2006 to tell the world about the positive impact of natural diamonds in Southern Africa. Its focus today is to create meaningful change in diamond communities around the world and to tell these meaningful stories. Working with sustainable materials and companies who are certified by the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC), participants will incorporate their interpretation of 'Growth, Unity and Equality' into their bracelet design.

The top three finalists will be announced on July 18, the 103rd anniversary of Nelson Mandela's birth. Finalists will present their designs to the full panel of reviewers including how the design relates to the theme of 'Growth, Unity and Equality'. Submissions are due June 28.

The final design will be featured on the Diamonds Do Good site for donations to benefit the Flaviana Matata Foundation, and have the potential to be featured at Jared The Galleria of Jewelry and leading luxury independent jewelry and department stores across the United States.
