The truth has made its way to the surface.
Apparently, the Nelson Mandela inspired clothing line, 466/64 Fashion, has no ties to Mr. Mandela whatsoever.
According to the president of Cadence Communications, James Cecil, who represents the Nelson Mandela Foundation in North America

The man who held on to Naomi Campbell's "dirty-looking stones" for 13 years has suddenly stepped down from his position at the Nelson Mandela Children's Fund
The charity released a statement regarding Jeremy Ratcliffe's resignation, saying:
"Mr. Ratcliffe regrets his omission to inform the chairperson, CEO and the rest of the board of trustees of the Nelson Mandela Children's Fund of his receipt of the uncut diamonds until now. Mr. Ratcliffe has stated that he acted in what he sincerely believed to be in (sic) the best interest of the charity."
Jeremy says he never did anything with the uncut diamonds because he didn't want the charity involved with any illegal activity.
So why step down now after 13 years, especially since he didn't do anything with them — or so he says.
