In early 1994 President and CEO, Neil Koppel formed Renaissance to develop and market laboratory grown gemstones and diamonds. Koppel’s background in buying, selling and cutting fine diamonds, natural rubies and sapphires was tested in the 1990’s as the world demand was outpacing supply.
Starting in 2007, Renaissance worked towards developing colorless diamonds utilizing CVD and HTHP technology.Today, through a joint venture with SCIO Diamonds (SCIO), Renaissance produces certified colorless, pink, canary yellow and blue laboratory grown diamonds from 0.50 to over 2.00 carats. As part of Koppel’s commitment to full disclosure and education, all Renaissance diamonds 0.50 carats and larger are certified by International Gemological Institute with identifying laser inscriptions and accompanied with a long diamond grading report. This guarantees it’s a Renaissance Created Diamond, Eco-Friendly and manufactured in a sustainable manner.
Renaissance maintains there is an extraordinary opportunity to offer consumers lab grown diamonds. There is price pressure on the natural diamond market from China, India and other emerging countries. They will fuel demand and help increase prices on rough and finished diamonds. The future effects of inflation will presumably also add to strong price increases. Recent rough diamond price increases of 6-10% substantiate the price increases. Koppel said, “We strongly believe that offering created diamonds makes good and smart business sense for both consumers and retailers. Predictable prices, outstanding quality and an excellent value proposition for the consumer make Renaissance Created Diamonds the smart, savvy choice.”
Our fancy colored diamonds attract new customers by offering affordable diamond colors that are typically rare and price prohibitive. Many consumers have researched colored diamonds and have gotten “sticker shock” over their costs. Now budget minded consumers can purchase what they’ve been searching for at prices within their reach and retailers will garner sales that traditionally could not be made… Plus we have the benefit of being Made in the U.S.A.!
