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 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.
