The first step in our Jewelry Creation Process, find out how we source our diamonds...At 64Facets, we are dedicated to making jewelry that is not only elegant and luxurious but also sustainable and ethically sourced. When learning about diamond jewelry, it is not only important to understand what diamonds are and how they are created, but also how they travel from the mine to our craftsmen. We’ve detailed our diamond sourcing process below so you can feel comfortable knowing where exactly our diamonds come from.
The Sightholders will then resell the diamonds to both large and small diamond trades and jewelry companies in various companies. Typically, rough diamonds will be traded numerous times before they are cut and polished after which they will again be sold a few more times. This means that these diamonds go through dozens of intermediaries before they are formed into jewelry as most jewelry designers will purchase loose cut stones rather than rough diamonds. The extended supply chain results in diamonds that are difficult to trace their origins as they are bought and sold many times before becoming jewelry.
At 64Facets, we buy our rough diamonds directly from a few select Sightholders in Antwerp, thus keeping our supply chain as short as possible while cutting out dozens of intermediaries. This allows us to price our fine jewelry competitively while guaranteeing sustainable and ethical sourcing.
From Antwerp, we then ship the carefully selected rough diamonds to our atelier in Surat, India to be assessed, cut, and polished.
