Earth Grown Diamonds
Earth grown diamonds are mined from deep under the earth's surface where they have lain dormant for millions of years. When you hold an earth grown diamond, reflect on the immense journey this diamond has taken and the history it has endured.
A diamond starts out in the lowly form of graphite, such as you might find in the tip of your pencil. Over the course of hundereds of millions of years, the immense pressure and temperature produced deep inside the earth rearrange the carbon atoms into a crystal structure.
Then miners dig deep tunnels under the earth and collect the rough diamonds. The rough diamond looks nothing like the sparkly diamond you are holding. It has an irregular shape, is very dirty and looks dull. The diamond is then cleaned, cut into it's desired shape, and finally polished into the beautiful diamond you are now holding!
All Ritani earth grown diamonds are certified by either the AGS or GIA – the two most respected independent grading labs in the world.
