We believe in a truly sustainable world. EcoDiamond’s mission is to provide a truly unique product designed just for you, rather than offering a gem with the value determined by the bloodshed and environmental detriment it has caused. In order to achieve true uniqueness, the diamond must be made with a specific purpose in mind. We at EcoDiamond cultivate various types of gems for different functions, one of them being jewellery diamonds. By supporting our method of diamond manufacturing, you will have to choose the size, shape, colour, carat worth and other properties, including an option to add something really special to the fundamental carbon extract compound – for example, rose petals from your grandmother’s garden. Unique by design, and created just for you. That is the EcoDiamond promise of true uniqueness.
Where does the term “carat” come from?
If you know the answer to this question, someone must have told you!
One of the vital 4C’s of a Diamond is “carat”. It’s the unit we use to measure the weight of a Diamond. Did you know that the word carat comes from different languages’ word for carob?
The carob tree, native to the Mediterranean area, has been in cultivation for at least 4000 years. The ancient Greeks planted it, Mohammed’s army ate kharoub, the Jewish sage Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai subsisted on its fruit for 24 years and some claim its pods are the “locusts” referred to in the New Testament to have provided sustenance to John the Baptist while he was in the wilderness.
So, what does all this have to do with Diamonds?
The carob seeds themselves are inedible, but they were observed to have a very uniform size and weight. This made them very useful for traders. The seeds were used to balance a scale when weighing precious gemstones, where the tiniest change in weight can make an enormous difference. A higher number of seeds indicated a heavier gemstone, and therefore a higher value. The use of carob seeds was consistent throughout the Middle East and Europe. In areas of the world where carob was not as ubiquitous, grains of wheat or rice were used in similar ways to discern the weight of diamonds.
In 1907, the Fourth General Conference on Weights and Measures adopted the ancient metric carat as the official measurement for gemstone weights. Today, measuring by carat is the standard around the world. One metric carat is one-fifth of a gram (0.2 grams) – about the weight of a paper clip!
The vital 4C’s of every single diamond:
To evaluate the quality of colorless diamonds in the most objective manner possible, four criteria are used. The 4 Cs are: the carat (weight), the clarity (purity), the color, and the cut. In order to classify diamonds in a clear and uniform way, laboratories and international certificating bodies have agreed on a common set of precise parameters to be used in assessing each of these criteria. These classifications are very important, as they influences the sales price of diamonds – and diamonds, in turn, affect the economic status of the entire world.
Diamonds of all colors can be found in nature – over 300 colors have so far been identified. However, diamonds come in an infinite number of shades and hues, so the categorization can be a bit generalized.
Instead of grams or kilos, diamonds are measured in carats. 1 carat is 0.2 grams; 5 carats is 1 gram. As the carat count increases, so does the size of the diamond – and its market value.
Often confused with the shape, the cut defines how the diamond sparkles. An excellent cut will have the best light performance, but various attributes are taken into consideration when evaluating, some of which cannot be measured by an untrained eye.
The clarity of the diamond is evaluated by the amount of blemishes and incisions in the crystal. When diamonds are created from carbon under extreme pressure and heat, imperfections may form in their crystal structures. These imperfections sometimes remain trapped inside and affect the diamond’s clarity.

EcoDiamond for tech
As science rapidly advances, diamond and tech’s relationship evolves stronger by the day. Typically, one visualizes diamonds as the ultimate piece of luxury, but the actual functionality of the element is far more than just its looks. There is a reason why tech industries are starting to entertain the idea of diamond becoming the next super-material. Ultimately, it will become exactly that and even more. Now with the possibility of laboratory-grown diamonds, the dream is no longer just a dream; some say that there will be a time when we will use this super-material for mass production manufacturing – of prisms, lasers, lenses, precision cutters, and much more. We say the time is now.Learn More

Our technology is on the precipice of greatness; we experience constant advancement and are pleased to be able to share it with the world of science and biotech. It takes a few scientists to develop a massive breakthrough, but it takes a cultural revolution to make a real change. Shifting the paradigm is not easy, but together we can change the world forever.Learn More
In our fast-paced modern world, our objects are haunted by planned obsolescence. Companies design appliances like TVs and toasters to be discarded and replaced over only a few years. Likewise, we do not own many mementos that commemorate the most important moments in our lives; we rarely have something to remember them by. One of our core missions is to help cherish the moments worth keeping, to give everyone a chance to encapsulate their moments of joy. EcoDiamond Infinite Diamonds® are one of a kind – made for a purpose, and made just for you. With the futuristic power of laboratory-growing technology, we are able to produce unique diamonds that can fundamentally encapsulate something irreplaceable: your warmest memories.Learn More
EcoDiamond Infinite Graphite™
The soul of diamond creation lies within the source. The process of growing a diamond is done using HPHT method and the core element of this cycle is based on the recrystallization of carbon source. Carbon atoms from one form are rearranged into a different order, thus creating one of the most magnificent materials on the planet. Any organic substrate is thermally processed and can serve as a source in order form a crystal structure of a diamond. Obtaining of graphite from biomaterials at EcoDiamond is carried out under one roof to ensure not only vast quality control, but also reduces the overall production time of the diamond, as well as allowing the customization of the experience from the very beginning to each customer.Learn More
