Are there any bills regulating the diamond trade?

Postby New Monmouthshire » Tue Sep 17, 2019 10:14 am

Hello fellow WA members!

I have an idea for a bill to regulate to diamond trade (or the gem trade more generally). It involves establishing common grading procedures as well as restricting conflict gems.

Are there any particular bills that might be most relevant?

There’s nothing at present. There was this, but it got repealed.

I can therefore assume that I am going from scratch then. I'll come up with something and post it here again when I have the time.

Welcome to the GA!

I hope you take up this project. I would, however, refocus onto a more economic focus rather than a financing focus: the latter is already dealt with by existing resolutions. It's an interesting topic though, I was just reading on the metro today an FT article about a broad fall in the mined diamond trade in the fact of competitively prices artificial diamonds.

My idea is to focus mostly on the scientific aspect actually, developing an international classification system as well as a grading procedure that is universal.

But yes, I will focus on the economic aspect as well.
