Our natural recycled diamonds are always very competitively priced and can help you increase margins. In addition, unlike lab-grown diamonds, recycled diamonds will hold their value and not reduce in value with increased supply.
What you may not know is that the bulk of reclaimed diamonds (about 75%, with the remainder being perfectly good for immediate use) are re-manufactured to VG+ specifications. Literally, the goods are good as new. Millions of diamonds have already been extracted from the Earth and set into jewelry for centuries. There is a ready and ever-growing supply to tap into. Jewelers can feel confident working with leading recycled diamond suppliers like White Pine Wholesale that recycled diamonds consistently meet modern standards.
Recycling saves energy and reduces the impact that the jewelry industry has on the planet. Miners and lab grown companies use substantial energy producing and extracting diamond. Recycling reduces the use of toxic chemicals that are released into the environment. Recycling produces considerably less carbon than other sources of diamond.
Retailers and designers should be marketing recycled diamonds directly to consumers and using that as a way to capture new consumers and market share. Milenilal and GenZ in particular are completely comfortable with resale and recycling and are actively looking for products that display sustainable credentials. It’s an open goal for retailers and manufacturers to work together and differentiate themselves from the rest of the market and to benefit from consumer sentiment.
