on

The company was founded in 2015 by solar energy industry veterans.

California-based Diamond Foundry is putting out 2,000 karats per month in artificial diamonds and hopes to ship billions of dollars’ worth of jewelry-quality gems in the coming years, according to Fast Co.Exist. The article says the company produces diamonds as large as karats, rough, or 2.7 karats polished, and is negotiating with a major high-retailer to sell its products. To create its diamonds, the company starts with a slice of natural, mined diamond and grows it in an 8,000-degree plasma reactor. Diamond Foundry was launched in 2015 by veterans of the solar power industry, and its products are meant to appeal to ethical-minded shoppers seeking conflict-free diamonds.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
