Panorama headed to Hatton Garden, the jewellery district in London, to see whether a ban on conflict diamonds from Zimbabwe's Marange region is working.
Hilary Andersson spoke to one retailer to ask whether the existing system, known as the Kimberley Process which requires participants to prove the origin of their diamonds, was robust enough.
The aim is to assure consumers that the gems they are purchasing are not financing war or human rights abuses.
