Sustainable luxury? Here come the diamonds made of air

Aether Diamonds is ready to revolutionize the luxury market by paving the way for the carbon negative production of precious metals.

The creators of the world’s first diamonds made from air, has just won the prestigious B Corp certificate, attesting to its very high environmental and social performance.

The real strength?

Aether’s process of creating lab grown diamonds commits to removing 20 metric tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere for every carat sold.

This system simply compensates for the emissions produced, without impacting the environment but also without making any contribution to improving emissions.

Aether Diamonds and air diamonds

Aether Diamonds, the company led by Ryan Shearman and Daniel Wojno recently received $18 million in Series A funding, has gone further, taking the lightest element on earth, air, and completely transforming it into one of the most unscratchable materials on earth, the diamond.

The real magic of this brand lies in creating extremely precious stones that convert pollution into clean air.

There are four transformation processes for these incredible sustainable diamonds:

A direct air capture technology is used to extract carbon dioxide from the atmosphere;
The second step is described on the company website as follows: “the trapped CO2 is then synthesized in the hydrocarbon charge necessary for the growth of diamonds in a chemical vapor deposition reactor”

The difference is above all in the fact that, while normal laboratory-grown diamonds use extracted fossil fuels, such as petroleum, the stones of Aether Diamonds exploit carbon sources that do not come from underground … or, better said, from the sky!

The prices of carbon negative diamonds are absolutely in line with those offered on the market.

Giving a diamond “from the sky” will undoubtedly be one of the most precious and meaningful gifts you can ever give … or give yourself.

A journalist ever since, I love turning the world's events into sentences and lines that can take readers "inside the news", leading them to explore the current happenings with me through my articles. My professional background has allowed me to gain insights into the encounter of two apparently incompatible worlds: luxury and sustainability. Guiding businesses in this direction as a communication manager and event organizer has made me aware that, now more than ever, it is by respecting ourselves and our planet's resources that we should start to create real value.
