Ada Diamonds is proud to offer the ultimate personalization in bespoke high jewelry—commissioned diamonds grown from your meaningful materials. Ada can process and purify any carbon-containing items, such as a bridal bouquet or graduation keepsakes, to high-purity carbon that is utilized to grow personally meaningful diamonds that brilliantly celebrate your finest moments and memories.
We call these cultured diamonds "Lavoisier Diamonds" in honor of Antoine-Laurent de Lavoisier, the father of modern chemistry. Among his many 18th-century scientific achievements, he proved that diamonds were made of carbon.
You are personally involved in the growth of your Lavoisier Diamonds. Ada will ship you a small graphite container, called a crucible, that you fill with your meaningful materials such as flowers, photos, documents, fabric, wood, wine corks, and yes, even hair or cremated remains of a loved one. Return the crucible to Ada in the same packaging, and we will process and purify the material into 99.999% pure carbon.
Your carbon will then be inserted into a high-pressure, high-temperature diamond press and Ada will cultivate your Lavoisier Diamonds. Both colorless and fancy-colored diamonds can be grown in sizes as as large as five carats, and will be cut and polished to the shape of your choosing. Lead times for the Lavoisier Diamonds typically range from 12-16 weeks, depending on the complexity and quantity of diamonds commissioned. You can learn more about the technical details of the Lavoisier Diamond creation process in Ada's Education Section.
After your diamonds are grown, cut into gemstones, and graded by independent geological laboratories, they can either be set into meaningful fine jewelry or delivered to you as loose gemstones. Lavoisier Diamonds have been set in bespoke jewelry, exquisite car interiors, and even home decor. The possibilities are endless and the diamonds are everlasting.
