With our new Ocean Diamond kit you can create the diamond ring of your dreams with ethical stones sourced from the sea.
A favourite the world over, diamonds are one of the rarest gemstones found in nature. Formed within the Earth’s mantle over millions of years, they are one of the hardest natural substances with a sparkle like no other stone. They have dazzled us for centuries; with their ability to reflect and refract light giving them a mesmerising quality.
At the heart of The Workbench London is a commitment to doing things differently including sourcing all our gemstones in a sustainable and responsible manner. This is why we are so excited to be partnering with Ocean Diamonds to create a kit that lets you create a diamond ring safe in the knowledge that this gemstone is conflict free, ethically sourced, natural and fully certified.
So, what is an Ocean Diamond?
An Ocean Diamond is a new category of natural diamond, hand-dived by professional diamond divers off the West Coast of South Africa. Supporting local industry and communities, much of the equipment on the boats is made by local people. The divers have extensive knowledge of the ocean so they know exactly where to discover the diamonds and avoid unnecessary disturbance to the seabed. The diamonds are brought to the surface leaving minimal trace, making these our most sustainable natural diamonds.
Whether you prefer a minimalistic and sleek design or a more intricate and organic form inspired by the ocean’s ebb and flow, this kit allows you to create a ring that perfectly represents your style and personality.
As with all our kits, you’ll receive everything you need to create a beautiful, custom ring, including jewellers wax, easy to use carving tools and video guide instructions to help you bring your vision to life.
Each ocean diamond kit includes a brilliant round cut ocean diamond, which is hand-selected for its quality and beauty. Once you are happy with your design we cast it in solid recycled silver (or the metal of your choice) and set your ocean diamond into your design to your specification and finish. Your diamond ring is then delivered back to you ready to wear!
By choosing this kit, you are making a conscious decision to support responsible and sustainable jewellery making. Not only that for every kit sold 10% will be donated to the Ocean Conservation Trust, a charity working towards healthier, cleaner oceans close to home and around the world.
The perfect gift for any special occasion, whether it be an engagement, anniversary, or birthday. The Ocean Diamond Kit is perfect for anyone looking to create an extra special ring, as well as those who are conscious about the environment and ethical sourcing.
