They’re truly global, with headquarters in London and mines in four countries – Botswana, Canada, Namibia and South Africa. Established in 1888, their expertise ranges from exploration and production to rough diamond sales and diamond jewellery retail.
A MODERN SEARCH
They combine advanced technology, huge investments and traditional exploration know-how to find the finest diamonds in the world. Today, they’re searching in Botswana and Canada.
Their mines are as much about supporting and caring for communities as they are about producing brilliant diamonds.
It’s a global approach to production that spans two continents and four countries – Botswana, Canada, Namibia and South Africa.
They believe that diamonds can offer huge economic and social benefits for their host countries. That’s why they work closely with local governments and communities, supporting their industries and making sure their diamonds help them prosper.
In Canada, they worked with indigenous communities to create the world’s newest diamond mine, Gahcho Kué. They have partnered with the governments of Botswana and Namibia, and with Ponahalo Holdings in South Africa.
It’s their mission to give back to their host countries – to leave a positive, lasting legacy long after they’ve recovered their last diamond.
