We Are Safdico

Safdico is one of the world’s leading diamond manufacturing and trading companies. We are synonymous with extraordinary levels of innovation, craftsmanship and professionalism.


Safdico has sustained a leadership position in supplying, manufacturing and marketing large, iconic polished diamonds in the world. We source, through our network of experts and technicians, rough diamonds from most of the preeminent diamond miners present in Botswana, Lesotho, South Africa, Western Africa, Canada, Russia or Angola. The provenance of every gemstone is paramount and our business is run in such a way that we will never buy, or trade rough diamonds from areas where it would encourage or support conflict and human suffering. Neither will we intentionally or recklessly endanger, or harm the welfare of individuals, or exploit the use of child labor.
Safdico Diamonds: Commited


Throughout the entire manufacturing cycle, every diamond is monitored by our unique tracking system. This allows the stone to be traced back to its origin to ensure that it is completely conflict-free. Furthermore, in order to establish traceability, we employ laser-engraving technology, which is invisible to the naked eye. As an organization we are fully accountable, undergoing stringent external audits twice a year. Our transparency and professionalism ensure that every single diamond that passes through our hands bears all the hallmarks of quality, accountability and provenance.
Safdico Diamonds: Transparency


Safdico is very sensitive to local and governmental requirements and regulations. We have been active in African countries for over three decades, transferring skills and empowering local talent. In Botswana and in South Africa, we have realized the government’s vision by building a diamond center in a professional, socially responsible, commercially viable and sustainable manner that satisfies the aspirations of government, the international diamond industry and other key stakeholders.
