So, what does this mean? Well, when you buy a diamond and if it has a greentinge, then you should not be paying the same price that you would pay for a yellow-tinge diamond, since if you get a Zimbabwe diamond it should be priced cheaper. The issue arises when your jeweller does not disclose to you that he is selling you a Zimbabwe diamond and you happily purchase from him because he is giving you a lower price than another jeweller who is actually quoting the price for a non-Zimbabwe diamond. Worse, you might be charged the same price and end up with a Zimbabwe diamond.
It may not be a crime to buy Zimbabwe diamonds since the international sanctions have been lifted but it is definitely necessary to know what you are buying to avoid overpaying for your diamond purchase!
