    Thanks for posting.
    Going to be interesting to see how this market evolves in the coming years.

    I also appreciate this from the article:
    "All its product is produced “as-grown” and untreated, which Peres now considers part of the company’s value proposition.
    “We do not treat our diamonds in any way,” he says. “We believe that will become more important in the future.”

    This was important to me when I was looking for a fancy colored lab grown Blue. I didn't want it to have any kind of post growth treatment, no heat, nothing. I wouldn't have purchased a color enhanced MMD.

    I'm now hoping someone can prove/disprove that CVD's has less brilliance, and fire than their mined counterparts.

    There is a certain irony to that first part :lol: lol, but I totally get where you are coming from :)

    I am also interested in the potential negative effects of CVD so await further info!


    I thought these bits were interesting in the article:
    That seems to bolster the previously discussions around growers/cutters needing to create their own niche and work it, in order for them to rise above the rest and survive in the longer term :)

    @OoohShiny - I totally get why some may find it ironic.. :lol::lol:.. But I wouldn't buy a mined diamond that was clarity or color enhanced either.
    So since I don't make a big distinction between natural vs lab grown, I follow the same logic.. :D:D
