Plasmability said it’s now regularly growing 2- to 5-carat polished diamonds of D-F color and VVS clarity, with plans to increase sizes soon.
All the company’s lab-grown diamonds are produced in Austin, Texas, and don’t receive any post-growth HPHT treatment, it said.
They will be distributed with a GIA certificate in both round and fancy shapes.
“We are thrilled to have partnered with HRA to manufacture and distribute our diamonds. Their manufacturing and market expertise adds a tremendous amount of value to our business,” said Plasmability CEO and co-founder Bob Basnett.
“After years of work, it is extremely gratifying for our entire team to have our product distributed into the diamond and jewelry market. The feedback we have gotten has been remarkable and we are excited for this new chapter.”
Itay Ariel, executive director of HRA, said, “After years of watching the lab-grown diamond industry emerge, we have been very careful and thoughtful of how and if we will enter this market. When we met Plasmability’s incredible team and learned about their technology and vision, we knew we found the right partners.
“The response we received from industry veterans on the product has been exceptional. We are very excited about this partnership and bringing Plasmability’s diamonds to the market.”
