Producing Synthetic Diamonds
Although the technology for synthetic diamonds came into play in 1954, no synthetic diamonds were ever seen on the market until the 1990’s.
This was due to the fact that it took many years for General Electric to produce a synthetic diamond that could compare with the quality of a natural diamond – and when they figured out how to do it, they found that it cost more to produce a synthetic diamond than it did to mine and cut natural diamonds.
Best Synthetic Diamonds
Finally, a small company by the name of Gemesis Corporation figured out a way to produce best synthetic diamonds that were of the same quality as natural diamonds, at a cheaper price.
Gemesis synthetic diamonds are considered best synthetic diamonds on the market, often difficult to find. Originally Gemesis Corporation sold diamonds directly to jewellers. Now the company sells rough cultured diamonds to polishing companies only.
Since 2012 the company has been also selling their synthetic diamonds directly to the consumers via their website, both as polished diamonds and diamond jewellery.
Gemesis Corporation produces synthetic white diamonds, and colored diamonds as well. These diamonds sell for about 1/3 of the cost of a natural diamond, but there is a shortage of them, and they are hard to find. In fact, it seems that synthetic diamonds are rarer than natural diamonds!
