Headlines US Firm Grows 6-Carat Diamond in Lab Published 3 years ago on February 1, 2018 By INSTORE Staff Share Tweet 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.” Advertisement Related Topics: created diamondsdiamondssynthetic diamondsWD Lab Grown Diamonds click to Comment(Comment) Up Next Consumers to Spend Near-Record $19.6B on Valentine’s Day, NRF Says Don't Miss Online Retailer Helps Launch Gemology Degree Program at Major University Continue Reading Advertisement SPONSORED VIDEO 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.” You may like My Diamond Price Predictions for 2021 … And How You Can Capitalize WD Lab Grown Diamonds First to Achieve SCS Sustainable Diamond Certification, Sets New Industry Standard 63% of Couples Pick Their Diamond Engagement Ring Together, Survey Finds Promoted Headlines Digital Warrior: A Conversation with GemFind’s Alex Fetanat GemFind A Sales Meeting Platform for The 21st Century The Plumb Club With Average Retails of $250, This Is One Brand You Won’t Want to Miss!
