Green Rocks, Fire Diamonds Partner on Fancy Color Lab-Grown Diamonds
They will offer a range of colors and sizes, from 0.75 carats to 13 carats, both loose and set in finished jewelry.
Founded in Aventura, Florida, with offices around the world, Green Rocks Diamonds was started by a group of high-tech entrepreneurs and is majority owned by Ofer Mizrahi Diamonds.
The company says its research, development, and production facility is the largest in Israel.
It also plans to open an even larger facility this year, which will be 80,000 square feet in size upon completion, with room to expand to 100,000 square feet. Isrough, the diamond-growing company Israeli diamantaire Ofer Mizrahi started, is funding its construction.
New-York based Fire Diamonds specializes in the development of fancy color lab-grown diamonds in various shapes and weights.
The collaboration between the two will comprise a wide range of fancy color lab-grown diamonds—red, purple, purplish-red, pink, purplish-pink, orangey-pink, orangey-yellow, yellow, greenish-yellow, green, greenish-blue, and blue—both loose and set in finished jewelry.
The stones range in size from 0.75 carats to 13 carats.
Green Rocks will grow and cut a portion of the diamonds, while Fire Diamonds will perform the proprietary color treatment.
Green Rocks will design and manufacture the finished jewelry.
Some of the blue and yellow diamonds are “as-grown” with no post growth treatment needed, according to a Green Rocks spokesperson. Treatment is noted on grading reports if present.
The finished jewelry collection is currently in development, and as of now consists of 15 pieces with retail price points ranging from $2,499 to $65,000.
The finished jewels and loose diamonds will only be available wholesale.
