Maybe diamond will be a girl’s best friend without hurting a boy’s wallet…

For centuries, diamond is a symbol of love and achievement. Normally, a 1ct round brilliant, VS1 clarity, and D color natural diamond run about $20,000/ct.

Last year, Gemological Institute of America (GIA) obtained 40 synthetic diamond crystals from a Russian company, named New Diamond Technology. These samples had a range of carat weight from .20ct to 5.11ct, with color grade from D to K, and clarity grades from IF to I2. This company had a successful rate of 89% in achieving a batch of colorless diamond (color ranging from D-F). These synthetic diamonds were either type IIa or week type IIb and possessed Ni-, Si- or N- related defects. However, HTTP method was promising to give the market an alternative product with a lower price point.

This year, Gemological Institute of America (GIA) obtained 50 synthetic diamond crystals from a company in Shandong, China. These samples had a range of carat weigh up to 3.5ct. Moreover, large quantities of gem-quality colorless and blue diamonds are produced at the same spot. Chinese factory owner did not disclose a total production; however, there will be lots more to be produced in a near future.

Many consumers today love to shop online. The issue is, how many online sellers will disclose their jewelry are using synthetic or natural diamonds honestly. Despite they might look similar, the rarer the gem, the more money its price. By definition, the price of a gem is based on three categories: beauty, durability, and rarity.

NEW! Unique Amethyst Handmade Grape Pendant

As natural as possible- A handmade pendant shows no less impressive than any CAD design pieces.

This 4.804CT Genuine Amethyst Handmade Grape Pendant, was exquisitely designed and handmade by Terry Barner, one of our gemologists and jewelers. Starting with a beautiful gemstone but there was no mounting to fit its museum size, Terry used a half-round wire of fine silver to wrap around the gem, laser welded the end, and bezel set it. He also used laser welder to make three beads from fine silver round wire. Then he cut leaves out of sterling silver sheet, formed the organic curve, and textured it to achieve the most natural look it can be. The bail to hang the pendant was another natural hands of the grape vine. It is very lovely and is waiting to be possessed by you.

Maple Leaf (Work in Progress)

I am now drilling down into the fine details of the leaf. I want to exaggerate the fine details in order to compensate for the loss of details that occurs when the model goes through the casting and polishing process. The ultimate goal is to have a natural looking textured surface.
