(PRESS RELEASE) AVENTURA, FL — Green Rocks Diamonds, a producer of high-quality created diamonds sold under the Green Rocks brand, has been accredited under the SCS 007 Sustainability Rated Diamond Standard for Trial Use. This achievement grants Green Rocks the authorization to use the claim of “Certified Sustainability Rated Diamond” on premium diamonds produced in its production facility in Nesher, Israel.

An early adopter of this trend-setting sustainability standard during the pilot stage, Green Rocks earned accreditation after completing a comprehensive third-party audit. Green Rocks met all relevant requirements of the Standard spanning five major pillars of sustainability: origin assurance, ethical stewardship, climate neutrality, sustainable production practices and strategic sustainability investments. The audit included extensive on-site inspection, interviews, documentation review, diamond testing, and a full assessment of the life-cycle of the diamonds.

Green Rocks CEO, Leon Peres said, “At Green Rocks, we believe that sustainability is the ultimate luxury. Our retail partners are increasingly demanding that products be produced and handled in sustainable ways that don’t hurt the environment or infringe on human and worker rights. We are proud of our achievement in meeting the requirements of the SCS-007 standard as it provides independent proof of our commitment to sustainability and transparency. We are excited to be selling these premium certified stones that bring tremendous value to the consumers and to the diamond industry.”

“Green Rocks was examined for its adherence to stringent benchmarks of social and environmental accountability, transparency and provenance assurance,” said Stanley Mathuram, executive vice president at SCS Global Services, the third-party certification body . “This is a tremendous accomplishment. We’d like to congratulate them on their hard work and proven success as a trendsetter in the jewelry industry.”

The standard was developed under an international, multi-stakeholder process managed by the non-profit standards development body, SCS Standards Development. The Standard Development Committee included diamond producers, retailers, technology experts, environmental and social responsibility civil society representatives and academia.

Maximize Every Sale with Wilkerson

When it’s time to run a sale, whether it’s a retirement, going-out-of-business, anniversary or “we’ve got too much merchandise” sale, let Wilkerson handle the details. The Diamond Galleria did just that when they selected Wilkerson to run its liquidation sale. According to Sharon, their CPA, it was the right choice. “We could have done a going-out-of-business sale ourselves and done 30 to 40 percent of what we actually sold with Wilkerson involved,” she says. Seeing the strategies that Wilkerson puts in place for every sale was something that convinced her they had made the right move. “I would highly recommend Wilkerson to anyone considering this type of sale.”
