Diamond Foundry Diamonds
We are taking our commitment to sustainability to the next level with our switch to above ground, unmined diamonds from Diamond Foundry.
“Unmined stones” are real diamonds. They have the same optical, chemical, thermal, and physical features.” — Matthew Hall, Director, Gemological Institute of America (GIA).
Just like with mined stones, each diamond is unique, forming in its own way with the same one-of-a-kind inclusions and unique growth patterns. No two diamonds are alike.
As with traditionally mined stones, these are cut and polished by artisans and craftsmen to reveal a superior, striking diamond.
The stones are forged aboveground without the vast environmental and social impact of mining.
Because they are produced, their origin is 100% guaranteed and certain - something impossible to know with mined diamonds from Africa and Russia that pass through dozens of owners.
Like Amanda, these diamonds originate in the American West.
Large diamonds are rare. Small diamonds are plenty. Whether mined or made.
We are thrilled to be creating jewelry without the huge environmental impact that traditional diamond jewelry carries with it. We couldn’t think of anything more beautiful.
We’ve taken control and are doing things our way - that means that we’ve cut the middlemen so that we can sell directly to you at real prices, and in turn do more for the causes that we support.
Our mission is to empower women to #MakeWaves. To do so in a sustainable, ethical, fair way, and rally attention and funds around a cause.
How We're Made
We are a small, women-run business, designing our jewelry in our NYC studio and manufacturing locally by artisans in the city’s Diamond District. We proudly work with local family businesses and small makers to help keep our local industry alive and thriving.
