The World Diamond Mark (WDM) is an independent international organisation created by the World Federation of Diamond Bourses to rekindle consumers’ desire for diamonds and their trust in the jewellery shop, and consequently, to boost demand for natural diamonds throughout the diamond supply pipeline.
The WDM carries out various projects which reach out to consumers, businesses and the diamond industry: WDM Conferences, the World Diamond Museum, the World Diamond Magazine, fashion shows, etc.
But successful diamond promotion is not possible without trustful, professional and loyal diamond jewellery retailers.
The World Diamond Mark set up the WDM Authorised Diamond Dealer Programme, a project developed specially for diamond retailers to help them successfully develop their business and to sustain and improve consumer confidence in their shops.
Diamantaires and diamond jewellery retailers who are accredited as WDM Authorised Diamond Dealers are actively promoted to consumers and receive marketing, educational and operational support by the WDM.
The WDM educates consumers that Authorised Diamond Dealers are best practice jewellery retailers and that the shops carrying a WDM seal on their doors are trusted locations to purchase diamonds.
