Quadrillions of Diamonds?

A recent study by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology has revealed that the earth’s crust contains quadrillions of Diamonds – about a thousand times more than what scientists initially estimated. So what does this mean for Diamond mining? Not much at this point, because these Diamonds are down so far into the earth’s mantle that they’re unable to be retrieved. That’s because researchers estimate the Diamonds are located between 90 to 150 miles beneath the earth’s surface. Currently, the deepest mine in the world can only reach approximately 1/3 of a mile below the earth’s surface! The MIT team used...

Authentic Diamonds May Soon Be Tracked With Blockchain

With so many synthetic Diamonds beginning to flood the marketplace, Diamond experts are calling for a better system to track and verify authentic Diamonds. That’s where the startup BitCarat steps in. BitCarat is a blockchain system which aims to track a Diamond from the mine and each step along the way- from being cut to its final stop adorning its owner. This system would track every change to the Diamond’s record, and would thus be impossible to falsify. Experts hope this new system will assign a code and allow a permanent record for Diamonds, and would not track fake or...

Diamonds 101: What is Girdle Thickness?

  There’s a term you may have heard of when discussing Diamonds. That term is the “girdle” of the diamond, or the perimeter that separates the top of the Diamond (known as the crown) and the bottom (known as the pavilion). Though the girdle of a Diamond may not affect the Diamond’s appearance, it can throw off the Diamond’s symmetry, making it worth less than it could be. Furthermore, depending on the width of the girdle, the Diamond may or may be less prone to damage. There are six girdle measurement ratings, ranging from “extremely thin” to “extremely thick.” They...
