(NAPSI)—The next time you give someone a gift of fine jewelry, you can also give yourself the gift of knowing you’ve done so responsibly.

That’s because the diamond industry has recently taken a number of steps to ensure that business, social and environmental standards are adhered to by companies that mine and sell these precious stones.

For example, one of the best- known names in the industry employs what it calls a Pipeline Integrity Standard that allows it to track each stone—from the mine to the display case.

The Forevermark responsible sourcing standards apply throughout the entire journey of a diamond, ensuring that it can be owned and worn with pride.

For instance, when it comes to identifying a country of origin for its diamond buying, countries are selected based on a number of variables, including a positive and proven human rights record, a stable political climate and an acceptable socioeconomic situation.

Once a country has been determined eligible, Forevermark then examines individual diamond mining companies. It will look into the operations of each producer and key areas of its management, such as safety and security.

By maintaining its Pipeline Integrity Standard, Forevermark knows its diamonds are kept separate and are easily identifiable from all other diamonds throughout the supply chain.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
