The Fifth C: The Future of Diamonds

We’re on a mission to make sustainable fine jewelry the new norm by choosing innovative and earth-friendly technology over outdated methods that hurt our planet. So meet our sustainably created diamonds, evaluated under the new and fifth “C” of diamond grading: Conflict-Free.

Conflict Free, Sustainably Created Diamonds

Traditionally, a diamond’s value is based on the 4 C’s: cut, color, carat and clarity but we consider a diamond’s conflict-free origin the fifth ‘C.’

Our diamonds are sustainably created in California and Washington by Diamond Foundry. Chemically and compositionally equal to traditionally-mined diamonds, with the same one-of-a-kind inclusions, color scales and unique growth patterns. Individually graded on the 4C’s by a certified gemologist, you can feel good about the jewelry that becomes a part of you - a thoughtful reminder of your values and a symbol for a more ethical and sustainable future. Read more about the benefits of the fifth ‘C’ here.

 

The Growing Process

01: Start With a Seed

Our diamonds are grown from a sliver of a previously grown diamond– a completely self-sustaining cycle forged by Diamond Foundry engineers in California and Washington.

 

02: Sun on Earth

The diamond sliver is placed inside a plasma reactor that replicates the energy and intensity of the sun’s outer core. The solar energy multiplies the sliver’s carbon lattice, growing the diamond atom by atom.

03: Finish By Hand

Once the rough stone has taken form, our master cutters expose each diamond’s unique brilliance by removing a thin outer layer of carbon.
