Modern Diamonds

The human and environmental tolls of mining diamonds in disparate places with corrupt oversight and opportunistic authority cannot be tolerated.

Our diamonds are sourced from the Diamond Foundry, a company that grows diamonds in California with cutting edge technology. The only difference between diamonds grown and diamonds mined is their origin.

Just like a mined diamond, no two Diamond Foundry diamonds are alike. Each diamond has unique growth patterns and inclusions that can be certified by the same agencies as mined diamonds.
