Why Novita Diamonds

Why should I buy from Novita Diamonds?

The main reasons are:

Origin of diamonds

Are Novita diamonds truly conflict free?

Yes they are! As opposed to mined diamonds, only lab grown diamonds can be guaranteed to be 100% conflict free. It is extremely difficult to know the origin of a mined diamond, especially when it goes through many sets of hands after leaving the mine.

Ethical Choice

Are Novita diamonds truly eco-friendly?

Yes they are! Different to our competitors, Novita Diamonds is a carbon neutral organisation. We buy carbon credit from the Amazonia area in south America to off-set our carbon foot print.

Does Novita also sell mined diamonds?

No. Novita is a strong believer in lab grown diamonds, making the world more sustainable and ensuring the diamonds we sell are guaranteed conflict free.
