GUEST POST - Is This the Future of the Diamond Industry? The Changing Face of the Sustainable Diamond Industry, by Ethical Jewellery

2nd December 2019


The Changing Face of the Sustainable Diamond Industry, by Ethical JewelleryPeople are beginning to care a lot more about where their fashion comes from. That extends beyond clothing and perfumes. Ethical and sustainable diamond production has become a hot topic for consumers across the world. 

One of the most effective means of resolving the problem has been the continued progression of the artificial diamond industry. These man-made gems are popular amongst both consumers and manufacturers alike. Costing less to purchase and create, they’re a viable solution to an increasingly puzzling problem. But how are they made?

  1. Small diamond seeds (extracts of pre-existing diamonds) are added to a growth chamber
  2. A ball of superheated gas is added 
  3. The chamber reaches temperatures of 900-1,200 celsius 
  4. Methane and hydrogen gases are added, sticking to the seed
  5. This causes carbon to form. The carbon grows on them for 3-4 weeks
  6. Seeds are continuously monitored during this period 
  7. The diamonds are removed from the machine and shaped to look like cuboids

It’s not a quick process, but it is easy to replicate the look and feel of a genuine diamond, without the need to cause ethical or sustainability issues.
