“Laboratory-grown diamonds constitute a swiftly growing segment of the fine jewellery industry, especially as growth technologies improve,” says VDB’s president and CEO, Tanya Nisguretsky.
Participating vendors include:
Each diamond will be accompanied by its own laboratory certificate, VDB reports.
“Hosting this auction is a natural progression for us, connecting buyers and sellers in a seamless, safe, and trusted environment,” Nisguretsky says. “We are making it possible for retail buyers, designers, and manufacturers to find, buy, and/or sell some of the best and largest laboratory-grown diamonds available, at the very best prices to date.”
Opening bids will begin at 8 a.m. EST on May 16, with final bids due May 19 at 8 a.m. EST.
