WD Lab Grown Diamonds ("WD" or the "Company"), a leading laboratory grown diamond producer in the U.S., today announced that it is the first company to be certified under the provisional Certification Standard for Sustainable Diamonds ("SCS 007"). This achievement grants WD third-party authorization to use the claims of 'Certified Sustainable' and 'Certified Climate Neutral' on their high-quality, As Grown diamonds. The climate neutral designation is an exemplary achievement, representing a level of accountability beyond standard Carbon Neutrality by also measuring, mitigating and offsetting the entire spectrum of greenhouse gases, climate pollutants and legacy emissions.


The Certification Standard for Sustainable Diamonds establishes the world's most stringent benchmark of sustainable accountability, transparency and provenance assurance for the gemstone diamond industry, and is the first unified framework for assessing natural and laboratory grown diamonds. The standard's Chain of Custody provisions are backed by third-party certification that utilizes A.I. enhanced laser ablation testing, which guarantees each diamond's origin with 99% accuracy. SCS Standards, the non-profit standards development arm of SCS Global Services, facilitated the creation of the standard, now in public review, through an international, multi-stakeholder consensus process involving diamond producers, retailers, academics and NGOs.


News of sustainability certification comes on the heels of WD's acquisition of pioneering materials science company J2, based out of Chicago, Illinois. As the Company further solidifies its market leadership position and ongoing commitment to innovation, transparency and sustainability, WD will continue its purpose-led transformation under the Latitude brand, coming soon at latitudediamonds.com.

If you're shopping for diamond, make sure you ask if it's a lab-grown diamond. Lab grown diamonds have the exact carbon structure as mined diamonds and are claimed to be indistinguishable from natural diamonds without testing equipment.


An expensive device developed by DeBeers for diamond dealers is an instrument which uses ultraviolet light to detect the difference between natural and lab grown diamonds. Lab grown diamonds will show a strong phosphorescent glow that is not common to natural diamonds.


Lab grown diamonds are promoted as ecologically progressive, however this has not been documented or proven. The lack of disclosures about what the waste byproducts are comprised of and the disposal procedures are a major environmental concern. We should be asking questions; how is this affecting our environment? Without this information how can lab grown diamonds be marketed as environmentally safe?


Lab grown diamonds are produced world wide; is not a futuristic idea. Produced in large to very small sizes by several private companies, including DeBeers and the Swarovski Group. One of the first lab grown diamonds made for commercial sales was a ten carat diamond by a Russian diamond lab in 2015.


The process starts by placing a small sliver of a mined natural diamond (called a seed) into a machine which will ultimately produce a larger (lab grown) diamond with the use of gases under high temperatures and pressure which aids in the binding of carbon molecules to the seed diamond to increase in size.


The cost difference of lab grown diamonds are currently less (expected to drop) than mined natural diamonds. This discounted amount will make it possible for more people to wear diamonds; comparable to the history of culturing pearls in the early twentieth century enabling more affordable pearls. 041b061a72
