Gemesis, a company engaged in the business of selling “cultured” diamonds has witnessed a surge in its growth in the past few years. Their designers are neck deep into experimenting with tinted stones. Whilst last year designer Taryn Rose designed a line of jewelry using Gemesis stones, today Florida-based designer Lee Havens is exhibiting a striking yellow cultured diamond necklace at his Palm Beach shop. Retailed at $500,000, the necklace is created by Gemesis and features 72 stones assuring 64 carats.
Almost 10% of the sales generation would be contributed to benefit The Foundation for AIDS Research (AmFAR) together with other pieces designed by Gemesis viz. rings and pendants ranging from $20,000-$40,000.
