Eight engagement rings with diamonds by laboratory: the choice of Alessa ♦ ︎
Diamonds created in the laboratory are becoming increasingly popular. Not so much for the price, which is lower than natural diamonds, but not too much. Synthetic diamonds, now almost indistinguishable from those extracted from the earth by the eye also for the most expert gemologists, boast an ethical motivation: they avoid ground digging, the use of miners in difficult conditions, complicated post-extraction work. It is no coincidence that even the diamond colossus De Beers has announced its entry into the artificial diamond market. And it is no coincidence that the small Maison Alessa Jewelry has chosen The Diamond Foundry, an American company that produces synthetic diamonds and has among its shareholders Leonardo DiCaprio, to create a line of eight engagement rings.
A choice, explained as the result of a common passion for sustainability and ethical production.
Alessa’s engagement rings are based on the typical geometries of the brand’s style: for example, with brilliant cut diamonds or pear that have two trilliant cut stones at their side. Surprisingly, these engagement rings are inspired by the colors of the rainbow and Greek mythology. Each piece, eight in all, indicates both a particular nuance and the powers of a specific Greek goddess. For example, red represents passion, and green is hope, violet is spiritual realization.
