Charles & Colvard introduces Caydia® Lab Grown Diamond Pavé Collection
This week, as jewelers from all over the world head to JCK for “the most important jewelry buying event in North America,” they’ll have a new shift in diamond buying trends to consider.
As CNN Business recently reported, there’s been a monumental up-swing in demand for lab grown diamonds over traditional mined diamonds amongst consumers.
New data shows lab grown diamond ring sales jumped 63% last year amongst ring shoppers and natural diamond rings declined 25%.
The report isn’t surprising to us here at Charles & Colvard. Lab grown diamonds offer a higher quality and value than mined diamonds, and do it all without compromising ethical standards. We go several steps further with our offering by working exclusively with made, not mined gemstones and recycled precious metals. We do this to serve the emerging consumer and their demands for fine jewelry that addresses concerns for both the environment and humanitarian impact. Fine jewelry, with a conscience.
While our made, not mined™ fine jewelry has mostly catered to the bridal and engagement ring market, conscious consumers are now looking beyond bridal for everyday, fashion, lab grown diamond jewelry, and so are we!
Our new pavé collection will be the first of many new fashion collections that feature our Caydia® lab grown diamonds. Pavé-set in 14k recycled yellow or white gold, the collection features all new silhouettes like inside out hoops, cigar bands, and statement bracelets that showcase our conscious diamonds (always in DEF color range and a minimum of VS1 clarity).
