Last week, I had the pleasure of attending the grand opening party for Spence Diamonds, the third US store for this international jewelry brand, located at Scottsdale Quarter. In truth, they had me at “diamonds,” but it wasn’t until I spent time learning about the brand and their unique approach to diamond creation that I realized just how revolutionary this company is. Thanks to Spence, Arizona is among the first states in the country to have access to the most high-tech diamonds in the world.
So what exactly are these high-tech artisan diamonds? Spence Artisan Created Diamonds are made from a ball of plasma vs. mined from the Earth. Identical to mined diamonds in every way, but created in a plasma chamber instead of being dug out of the ground, these diamonds are physically, optically and chemically identical to the finest diamonds mined from the Earth.
Here are 3 reasons why you should totally buy a Spence Artisan Created Diamond next time you’re in the market for a little bling:
1. Bigger, Better Quality Diamonds for the Same Price
When you buy a Spence Artisan Created Diamond, you not only get a much better quality diamond, but also a much larger diamond (usually by 20% or 30%, even in some cases 50%) for the same budget. When you get up to a 2+ carat mined diamond, the equivalent Artisan stone will be 4 to 5 carats for the same price. I mean, look at this amazing pink diamond bracelet I tried on. At Spence, it’s listed at around $18,000, but the equivalent in minded diamonds would be nearly $500,000!
2. Socially Responsible Diamonds
Artisan Created Diamonds are ethically produced, eco-friendly and socially responsible. There’s no physical destruction of the environment, no social destruction, no holes dug, no wildlife killed and no worrying about blood diamonds. Since Spence Artisan Created Diamonds are created in a lab, you can rest assure that you’re making a socially responsible diamond purchase.
3. You Can’t Tell the Difference
For me, this is what really sealed the deal. I looked at a ton of Spence Artisan Created Diamonds, and you cannot tell the difference between one and a mined diamond. That’s because there truly is no physical difference between an Artisan Created Diamond and an Earth-mined diamond. The only difference is its source and age. Experts can only tell the difference with a multimillion dollar dating machine! Spence is even able to achieve rare colors like canary and pink diamonds.
Thanks to breakthrough technology, only a few centers around the world specialize in this type of diamond creation, and Spence is quickly becoming the leader in the industry. So next time you’re in Scottsdale or another city that Spence is located in, be sure to stop by and see for yourself.
