Green Lake’s collection of diamonds only maintain gems with certifications from the GIA or other internationally recognized laboratories, all with an assurance of the Kimberly Process Certification Scheme — the UN resolution passed in 2000 to ensure ‘conflict diamonds’ do not enter the global supply chain.
As Americas premier custom jeweler, we are well known for our picky eye and demanding standards. We offer only the best quality natural diamonds. Our focus on cut grade and cherry picking the most eye clean of each grade means our inventory of natural diamonds is better.
Yes, we keep the majority of our gemstones, natural diamonds included, in our inventory so we can hand select only the best and leave the rest to the mass merchandisers.
Most online diamond companies don't own any diamonds, they all list pretty much the same ones, almost all sitting in vaults overseas.
