The company claims it’s a world record.

WASHINGTON — WD Lab Grown Diamonds announced that it has created a 6-carat round diamond that “stands as the world’s only known lab-made CVD diamond of its size and shape.”

The gemstone was grown at the company’s facility located just outside Washington, D.C. in a lab that produces diamonds for the gem stone market as well as industrial and scientific purposes, according to a press release. It was made through the chemical Vapor deposition (CVD) process.

“The 6-carat diamond was sold in less than a month – demonstrating there is immediate demand for a diamond of that size and quality,” the release stated. “The company is currently in the process of creating diamonds larger than 6 carats, continuing its tradition of innovation and quality to serve market needs.”

The company said it aims to regularly offer retailers similar stones.

“We’re excited about our new world record for round lab-grown diamonds,” said Clive Hill, founder and chairman at WD Lab Grown Diamonds. “Our patented technology and industry-leading engineers consistently provide top quality results that only the latest innovation can offer. This 6-carat white diamond would price similarly to a 3.5 carat mined diamond with the same quality.”

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
