All the bling, none of the sting

Although they’re physically and chemically identical to Earth-mined diamonds, Skydiamonds don’t have any downsides…

All the bling…

Because of the purity of our ingredients and our unique approach, Skydiamond creates ethical stones of the highest quality. If it’s not from the sky, then it’s a substandard diamond.

We work with some of the world’s best artisan diamond cutters to create all the most popular diamond shapes, as well as our own exclusive Skydiamond cuts. Skydiamonds are made in a range of sizes, and stones one carat or larger come complete with an internationally accredited diamond certification.

Our ethical diamonds are graded for quality in the same way as mined diamonds

…none of the sting

The diamond industry spends millions on marketing, trying to convince you that a gem torn from the Earth is somehow better. But the fact is that the way we make Skydiamonds actually benefits the planet while their operations are doing irreparable damage to it.

The Kimberley Process was set up by the industry to prevent conflict diamonds from entering the market but the very fact that they need such a scheme tells you something’s wrong. Skydiamond makes the Kimberley Process irrelevant. No harm is done in the creation of our stones.

So, when it comes to disclosure, differentiation, detection and documentation we agree with the industry. The full supply chain, environmental and social impact of every diamond must be made transparent to consumers.

‘Diamonds are forever,’ says the mining industry. What they don’t tell you is that the impact of diamond mining is also forever.

How diamond mining is taking its toll

There’s more to the quality of a diamond than just it’s physical characteristics. Where it comes from is equally important. Here’s what diamond mining is doing to the world…

Environmental impact

Diamond mining displaces around 142 billion tonnes of earth every year, burning fossil fuels, pumping CO2 into the atmosphere and polluting water sources in the process

Mining creates pollution and kills fish. But with a Skydiamond you can avoid that environmental impact
Diamond mining in Canada has driven caribou off their regular migratory routes, but Skydiamonds have no impact on wildlife

Wildlife impact

From endangered tigers in India to caribou migrating on the Canadian tundra, mining operations destroy habitats and contribute to the extinction of species.

Human impact

Conflict diamonds, child labour, exploitation of workers, corruption, dangerous conditions, displacement of indigenous people – diamond mining is notorious for all this and more.
