Eco Synthetic Diamonds

Eco Synthetic Diamonds

Material Sustainability

Gems for eternity

Diamonds are older than human history, formed deep beneath the earth's surface under tremendous pressure and incredible heat. And as soon as people discovered them, they were mesmerized by their mesmerizing beauty. As if magic emanated from them, in ancient Greece they were considered the tears of the gods, sparkling witnesses to infinity. But as beautiful and enchanting as precious stones are, their origin is in many cases uncertain.

How are synthetic diamonds made?

Natural diamonds are born in a fiery heat. The same applies to the stones grown in the laboratory based on their model, as well as to diamonds that are produced using the so-called CVD process. This stands for Chemical Vapor Disposition. To do this, a plasma of unprecedented energy density must be generated. In a lab south of San Francisco, our partners Diamond Foundry build novel plasma reactors using hundreds of individual precision-machined parts..

Diamonds can be created in a plasma as hot as a small sun on Earth. In this heat, atoms can attach to the diamond's natural crystal lattice, which forms the basis of the lab-grown diamonds in this process, and enlarge it. One by one, the atoms pile up on a thin foundation of diamond, expanding the seed diamond's unique crystal structure. Atom by atom, it grows into a pure, decorative rough diamond the size of a gem.

High pressure, high temperature

Our partners Swiss Diamond Vision work with the HPHT process to produce laboratory-grown synthetic eco diamonds. HTHP stands for High Temperature, High Pressure. In this process, which is based on the natural formation process of diamonds, graphite-2H is placed in growth cells, which are loaded in so-called cubic presses from three sides with a pressure of up to 70,000 bar. Graphite-2H is a natural manifestation of the chemical element carbon, which has a hexagonal crystal structure resembling a honeycomb. The interior of the growth cell is first equipped with catalysts and seed diamonds and heated to around 1600-1700 degrees Celsius. Under these conditions, the graphite changes in a physical-chemical process and the black powder grows into a transparent diamond. Diamond is the thermodynamically more stable form of carbon.

The growth time for an approx. 1.5 carat diamond raw stone in white, blue or yellow color is about 50 hours. With additional treatment, pink, green and red diamonds can also be produced. The rough diamonds grown in this way by Swiss Diamond Vision are then cut into the beautiful gemstones that we use in our jewelry. Both the diamonds that are produced using the CVD process and those that are produced using the HTHP process are in no way inferior to natural diamonds: they are identical in appearance, hardness and chemical composition to their natural counterparts.

In this way, diamonds of breathtaking uniqueness can be created without polluting the environment or endangering people in crisis areas..

Why we use lab grown diamonds

We at Maren Jewelery have chosen to do this for ourtrinket instead of using natural, synthetic eco diamonds from Diamond Foundry and Swiss Diamond Vision.

They are not only equally pure andunique like natural diamonds, but their origin is 100% guaranteed: Our diamonds come either from Switzerland or from America. This means that our gemstones are 100% conflict-free. In addition, synthetic diamonds are resource-friendly. If 1ct diamond is mined in the conventional way, up to 200 tons of earth have to be moved. Moving these masses requires an unbelievable amount of energy. Our diamonds are therefore much more environmentally friendly than natural diamonds. The high energy required for the breeding process alone is problematic, but Diamond Foundry also thinks about this, which, like Maren Jewellery, is a CO2-neutral company..

Jewelry that fits our values

By choosing synthetic diamonds, we can ensure that we are designing jewelry that fits our values: sustainable, mindful and responsible. On our product pages you can of course see which diamond we use for which piece of jewelry, either from Diamond Foundy or from Swiss Diamond Vision. And best of all: Our pieces of jewelery are not only good for you, but also for our planet!!

Our Synthetic Eco Diamonds As pure as a diamond can get..

As pure as a diamond can be.
