Every Phoenix lab’ grown gem is a genuine and authentic diamond, which can be certified by ‘AnchorCert’ (the Birmingham Essay Office). We do write and issue our own certificates automatically. ‘AnchorCert is an independent assessor, (but the test adds weeks, has an extra cost and has risks attached for your unique diamond).
It is a pointless exercise for us to send away your diamond to ‘AnchorCert’ for it come back to us and for us to deliver to you – that is no proof THE gem is the same one we sent away. It is much more logical and sensible for YOU to send the diamond for certification, then you are sure you are in your own loop.
About jewellers testing equipment : A simple $200 diamond tester may produce false negatives and false positives (because they are crude). De Beers developed test equipment costing $$$millions to be 99.9% positive.
Over the last 15 years, we have made some amazing diamonds and some ‘World firsts’.
The Jessica Diamond, the first diamond in the world made from the carbon within an at risk baby’s umbilical cord.
The London Riots Diamond, made for the Mexican artist Teresa Margolles, who had collected the detritus of the riots of 2011.
We have been privileged to experiment making diamonds for Promessa Organic SA of Sweden for whom we made two stones, one from the basic process (freeze drying) and one from the secondary remains after ‘green’ cremation.
The Honey Bee Diamonds, a philanthropic project to raise awareness of ‘Colony Collapse Syndrome’ and the plight of the worlds dying bees, for without these industrious pollinators, the human race could be doomed.
The Equine Diamond, a fabulous white (with a slight blue hue) 1.00 carat diamond made from a hank of a living horse’s tail hair.
Celebrity Diamonds: Confidentiality prevents us from disclosing exactly WHO we have made ‘Memorial Diamonds’ from, but we have been privileged to assist many famous families.
Composite Diamonds: Carbon is carbon, diamonds are carbon, so mixing various sources of carbon is easy and simple, whether it be : Dad’s ashes with living Mum’s hair ; A whole family of ‘Cremains’ collected over the years; We have used Two loved dogs – one still living and once sadly deceased, mixing hair and ashes to make two lovely diamonds; We’ve also memorialised many horses, Dogs, Cats and even a Parrot’s ashes to make stunning diamonds.
