    BRING DIAMONDS PRODUCES THEIR  FIRST ORANGE (PEACH) DIAMOND

    Gem quality fancy coloured diamonds are rare. Only 1 in 10,000 diamonds dug out of the ground are non-white. Even then, most of these are brown or yellow.

    Orange diamonds are the second rarest colour (after red) for gem quality diamonds. This rarity means that often a high price-tag is placed on these stones, putting them out of reach for many. In fact, a fancy vivid orange diamond set a world record at auction for any coloured diamond at $2,398,151 per carat. 

    It is very unusual for CVD diamonds to be orange, yet here at Bring Diamonds we have managed to produce this remarkably beautiful pinkish orange diamond. A pure Type IIa diamond with no fluorescence, it is a 0.45 carat pear shape and will make a rare and unique piece of jewellery.

    BRING DIAMONDS SUPPORTS THE PROTECTION OF RED SQUIRRELS

    The red squirrel is officially classed as Near Threatened in England, Wales and Northern Ireland but is locally common in Scotland. The main cause behind their decline is the introduction of grey squirrels from America.

    The three main reasons why greys are a threat include:

    1. Disease - Grey squirrels can carry Parapoxvirus, which does not appear to affect their health but will readily kill red squirrels.

    2. Competition for food - Grey and red squirrels both eat acorns. However, greys are more likely to eat unripened green acorns, whereas reds will only eat them when they are ripe. Therefore reds are deprived of that food source before they ripen. 

    3. Breeding - Red squirrels will not breed as readily when they are under pressure.

    The loss of woodland is another huge factor in their decline as are road traffic and predators.

    Bring Diamonds supports charities that work hard to protect this precious and endangered species whilst increasing public awareness of their plight. For instance, we have given aid to the Cramlington & District Red Squirrel Group in southeast Northumberland who are managing to maintain a small and healthy population of red squirrels. Further afield we also support the Woodland Trust and the Bamff Rewilding project in Perthshire in which the combined effects of beaver activity, removal of intrusive land management practices and native tree planting are already creating an amazing resurgence of biodiversity.

    Bring Diamonds creates a rare Fancy Pink/Grey diamond

    Pink and grey diamonds are rare but nowhere close to the rarity of a pink grey diamond. Upon searching you may find a few melee diamonds of this colour but virtually none of this size. 

    This beautiful gem is a type IIa, 1.35 carat fancy pink grey diamond. It is a ‘very good’ grade cut in a brilliant round shapeThere is no doubt that this one-of-a-kind diamond will be the centrepiece of a dazzling piece of jewellery that will impress all who see it.

    FOUNDER OF BRING DIAMONDS PLANTS TREES

    Re-wilding, regeneration of native forests, re-learning of traditional skills as well as the renovation and re-purposing of redundant historic buildings are some examples our CEO Finlay Lockie continues to work on at his home near Edinburgh.

    Trees planted by Finlay as a child in the 1960’s and 1970s in Roslin Glen, near Edinburgh and later in Peeblesshire with his father, are now over 50 feet high. The effects of such projects can be seen to go much farther than the narrow aim of reducing mankind’s net carbon emissions.

    For Bring Diamonds, it is important that our company reflects a well-informed and open-minded approach to sustainability. To us, this means we should be better than a mere adding up of carbon emitted and carbon sequestered (or worse, mere offset by a financial instrument).

    What we seek is to establish – as part of our efforts to be carbon neutral and better – is therefore an honest and integrated strategy for sustainability for our company;  one in which more than one significant and demonstrable benefit will flow. So rather than simply buying a carbon offset, we want to support – directly where possible – projects which themselves are the enablers of other sustainable and environmentally beneficial activities.

    Here we make a start on our Bring Diamonds forest located at Drummohr near Edinburgh. The first few trees have been planted and we hope to ‘supercharge’ the efforts of our founder Finlay by using a proportion of the profits made from sale of our diamonds to support such things as integrated power and heating systems, and organic micro-green production.
