OUR ABOVEGROUND DIAMONDS & ETHICS

_
 
"Monarc’s Aboveground Commitment Collection is a ceremonial jewellery series that does not compromise social and environmental justices. Aboveground production is boutique, based on modern-day craftsmanship, and upholds the modern tenets of worker’s rights and social responsibility.
-
From the outset we wanted to create an engagement and wedding ring offering that is more in line with the core values of love and marriage. Monarc’s Aboveground Commitment Collection brings sustainability and transparency to jewellery items that signify one of the most important moments in our lives."

01: ATOMICALLY IDENTICAL DIAMONDS

Aboveground diamonds are atomically identical to mined diamonds; the stones grow through the same processes that occur in the Earth’s layers, but unlike mined diamonds, they do not compromise social and environmental justices.
-

02 : PURE PROVENANCE & CARTEL-FREE

While mined diamonds generally pass through several owners with an origin impossible to trace, aboveground diamonds have transparent provenance. The diamonds we use are 100% traceable and guaranteed to be cartel-free. 
 

03 : ZERO CARBON FOOTPRINT

At a foundry located in San Francisco, a team re-creates the environment in which nature forms diamonds. Engineers harness the energy of the sun to make a better diamond.
Solar power credits are used to reduce aboveground diamonds carbon footprint to zero. Aboveground diamonds are born from a fiery heat; a plasma of unprecedented energy density is the key step in re-creating the Earth’s ability to host and grow these natural stones. One by one, carbon atoms stack on top of a thin foundation of diamond, extending the unique crystal structure and tetrahedral symmetry inherent in diamonds created by nature. Atom by atom, a stone grows into a pure, jewellery-grade, gem-sized diamond.

04 : FINISHED BY HAND & CERTIFIED

A diamond rough is cut and polished into beautifully faceted gems. Monarc Jewellery offers a wide range of cuts to appeal to every taste. Monarc’s Aboveground Commitment Collection diamonds are cut to the highest standards. A GIA Gemologist grades our Aboveground diamonds – this is the final step in the process of preparing each jewellery item for market, and we fully warrant this grading report. That is, you obtain a certificate, not just a lab report.
