Lab Grown Diamonds

Lab grown diamonds are offered at many jewelry retailers these days, but it’s a new product line for these brands. We’ve been doing it for years based on our company commitment to never, ever using mined stones in anything we do. Because we’ve been doing it longer, our relationships with quality growers is unparalleled.

Lab created diamonds are just that: diamonds. In every possible way. Except in their time below ground, which is not one day.  In 2018 the Federal Trade Commission ruled that, in essence, “a diamond is a diamond is a diamond” meaning, chemical composition is what defines a diamond, not the process by which it is made.

Which takes us to today’s real differentiator: Let the buyer beware. Because so many have joined the game of manufacturing and sourcing lab created diamonds, experience and knowledge are the new value currency. The product quality range of available diamonds is wide, and the process by which an individual lab diamond is created matters for cut, eventual certification and value. We’re happy to lead the sector with our unique knowledge.

It’s worth noting here that our very mission as a company is based on manmade versus mined diamonds. We could sell both, easily, because the supply of mined diamonds is infinite. We choose not to, because it’s just not right. Never have, never will.

The Nexus Diamond™ Alternative

The flagship product of Forever Companies, the patented Nexus Diamond™ Alternative, truly lives in a category of its own. Diamond simulants have been around forever, but our patented technology is quickly disrupting the entire sector. The Nexus Diamond™ Alternative, available only at Forever Companies, was created to replicate the subtle visual cues and durability of perfect mined diamonds.

If your standards are: “Can a jeweler visually tell the difference?” The answer is no, they can’t. Or, “Will it cut glass like a mined diamond?” The answer is yes, it will. And, “Is it guaranteed forever?” You guessed it – YES, forever. Which is why we’re named Forever Companies.

The differences? Chemical composition and cost. Significantly lessened environmental impact and zero human subjugation. Plus, rendering the international mined diamond supply chain worthless.

Win, win, win.

Lab Created Gemstones
and Colored Nexus
Diamond™ Alternatives

In addition to offering the Nexus Diamond™ Alternative and lab created diamonds, we also manufacture rubies, emeralds, sapphires and other precious gemstones that are chemically identical to their mined counterparts.

The difference? Ours are perfect, without inclusions or color variations. And like the rest of our stones, ours are significantly less expensive than those that come from the earth. This includes our colored Nexus Diamond™ Alternatives. Fine jewelry lovers, tired of perfect white diamonds, love our canary and blue Nexus Diamond™ Alternatives, especially when used in right hand rings and pendants.

Wait, But What About
Metal? That Comes
From the Earth…

You’re right. We have not yet found a way to create manmade gold or platinum. We don’t think there’s enough straw in the world to spin into gold, so whenever possible, we use recycled metals instead.
