Carbon negative, vegan-certified diamonds

American company Aether Diamonds claim their lab-grown diamonds are the world’s first vegan-certified and pollution cleaning diamonds.

According to their FAQ, their technology allows them to “pull pollution straight out of the earth’s atmosphere in the form of CO2 and convert it into real diamonds. For every 1 carat diamond we produce, we remove 20 metric tonnes of air pollution from the atmosphere via our combined air capture and carbon sequestration efforts.”

The company uses energy from sustainable sources and offsets their carbon impact from shipping and logistics with additional carbon credits. All their packaging is sustainably sourced, with components made of biodegradable, reclaimed post-consumer waste, recyclable, and/or renewable materials.

Due to high demand, almost all pieces available from the company are currently only offered on a waitlist.
