Premiere of first ever laboratory grown diamond jewellery brand at Baselworld

15 march 2016
After successful launches of ‘The Promise Collection’, an one-of-a-kind jewellery collection, in the UK and Germany, Madestones it at Baselworld, the world’s largest watch&jewellery show, Madestones reported.
‘The Promise’ is the first ever Laboratory Grown diamond jewellery brand which uses Madestones.
Аccording to Madestones, the larger producer in Europe of syntetic diamonds, laboratory grown diamonds provide a solution to the expected decline in the supply of mined diamonds, which is likely to affect the diamond industry’s economy by filling significant 13% demand supply deficit. In the years to come, with the reasons above combined with social and environmental responsibility and affordability, the lab-grown diamonds are forecasted to be a dominant player in the diamond jewelry industry, predicts Madestones.
