White Pine Wholesale is one of the leading recycled diamond and jewelry companies in the industry. Our experts have over 50 years experience in the industry and have built many meaningful relationships and partnerships with some of the leading figures in the industry. We also like to let our customers vouch for us, click here to see the reviews our customers have left us.
The majority of our melee diamonds are natural recycled diamonds. These diamonds are ethically sourced from across the jewelry industry. We buy from businesses that buy back from the public such as jewelers, pawn shops and at diamond auction. In addition, we buy from jewelry brands/manufacturers who are looking to close out of their stock.
Our diamonds are VG or EX cut by GIA standards. After purchase, we assort all diamonds very carefully and any diamonds that do not meet this standard are sent to our factory for re-manufacture. All re-manufacturing is done at our factory in India.
Our melee diamond price card is for G/H color diamonds. We are very selective in the diamonds used in our melee program. If you need higher or lower colors we can accommodate that request upon request. DEF color would be a 10% premium higher than the prices on the price card, and IJ color is a 10% discount from the prices on the price card.
As a recycler of natural diamonds, we take the utmost care and time to thoroughly test all of our diamonds. We do this using the DeBeers Synth Detect machine. Each parcel of diamonds goes through several checks before ever being put into stock. We check all parcels before purchasing, when they return from being recut, and when we get returns from customers. We stand by our product and go the extra mile to ensure that our diamonds are 100% natural.
We charge a 5% premium for ordering 5 or more stones with matching millimeters in our 1/5th size parcels and larger. The reason being is that most people tend to order the prime sizes in a parcel, which generally speaking are the larger millimeter and higher carat weight stones in that size range, which have value than the smaller stones.
When we are buying pointers by size range, they come in a variety of millimeter sizes and weights (i.e 1/5s range from 0.17cts-0.22cts). Each size range has “prime sizes” and “off sizes”. We will sell through the prime sizes of the parcel and be left with the off sizes of the parcel. In order to clear out our stock and make room for new fresh goods, we will sell these off sizes at an extremely competitive price, usually for a loss. To balance out the cost of the parcel, this is why we charge a premium for 5 or more diamonds with matching millimeters in the pointers.
Almost all orders are fulfilled using recycled diamonds. We repurpose as much of the diamonds that we buy as we can in our melee stock and jewelry production. There are exceptional circumstances where we must fill in from the market for special orders or requests. We offer customers who exclusively require recycled diamonds the option to do so.
We offer several different fancy shapes including princess cuts, marquise, tapered and straight baguettes, ovals, emeralds, and pear shapes. We also have a great selection of matched fancy pairs that make perfect side stones for custom rings or pair of earrings – shapes include half-moons, trapezoids, bullets, kites, pears, emeralds, radiants, ovals, pie slices, and baguettes.
No – whether you need 1 stone or 1000 stones, you can order the exact number of diamonds you need for your project and production.

Unfortunately, not. Repairing other people’s production is very tricky, we can not be responsible for the original makers poor craftsmanship. For this reason, we can only be responsible for the specific work that we do. So, for example if we re-attach a chain, we can not be then responsible if a stone falls out at a later date. In addition, if we work on something it is very possible that additional problems are found.
