The 'Urban Diamond Mine'
We source our diamonds direct from the public - the 'Urban Diamond Mine'
Often, a privately held diamond is inherited or becomes unwanted and so needs to be sold
There are many millions of privately owned 'already mined' diamonds above ground, already cut and polished. These diamonds are all shapes and sizes.
With our expertise, these diamonds are recycled back into the jewellery supply chain, thereby helping reduce the ethical and environmental issues associated with rough diamond mining and blood diamonds.
Consumer Recycled Diamonds
Our 'consumer recycled' diamonds are the most ecologically friendly, natural diamonds available.
All our diamonds are submitted to independant diamond grading laboratories, such as GIA, for assessment and grading
We then remodel and distribute our recycled diamonds direct to jewellery manufactures, retailers, and diamond dealers and direct to our own investment and retail clients
We are a UK registered Limited Company, proud to be full members of the British Jewellers Association
As diamond dealers and manufacturers we follow the best practice principles of the DTC and the Kimberley Process
