Diamond Foundry Endorses Marking Cultured Diamonds

February 19, 2015 BY Ritu Raj IN In the News

At Diamond Foundry, we are proud of our cultured diamonds. To us, manmade translates to environmentally friendly, conflict free, ethical stones. We laser mark all of our diamonds so that anyone can recognize them as grown – not mined. 

Key Challenges

However, not all companies that produce diamonds feel the way that we do. Bloomberg reports that “one of the key challenges the industry plans to confront are undisclosed manmade diamonds entering the supply chain. While laboratory diamonds are nothing new, technological leaps have allowed manufacturers to produce larger numbers of gem-quality stones cheaply, with traders able to attempt to pass them off as mined, or natural, stones.”

We understand that misleadingly advertised gems can create confusion in the marketplace. “The Times of India reported last month that 110 manmade diamonds were discovered in a parcel in the Indian city of Surat, the world’s biggest cutting center. The undisclosed mixing of diamonds has been discovered on several occasions in the nation with India’s Gem Jewellery Export Promotion Council starting the Natural Diamond Monitoring Committee to combat the issue.”

Lab created diamonds were discovered in Indian cutting centers.

At Diamond Foundry, we endorse the mining industry’s clandestine efforts towards supporting consumer confidence. While we are proud of the stones we’ve created, we want to give consumers the power to chose them.
