The news first appeared on the Twitter account @diamondanalyst, which is operated by John Vardis.

De Beers announced in May that it was launching Lightbox Jewelry, with products priced from $200 for a quarter-carat stone to $800 for a one-carat stone. The line features pink, blue and white lab-grown diamonds in a selection of earring and necklace designs.

Bruce Cleaver, CEO of De Beers, said at the time that Lightbox would “transform the lab-grown diamond sector by offering consumers a lab-grown product they have told us they want but aren’t getting: affordable fashion jewelry that may not be forever, but is perfect for right now.”

To support Lightbox, De Beers Group is investing $94 million over four years in a new Element Six production facility near Portland, OR.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
