Story

Aether is the alchemy of air. Pollution to solution. From nothing into something. Carbon becomes diamond. A metaphor for how we shape our world with every single breath. Because we believe love, like most things, is something you do for yourself, your people, your planet. We believe what you wear is a reflection of who you are on a deeper level, and the future you have a hand in creating. Certainly humanity has reached the point where we can have nice things and be proud of where they come from. We believe relationships and revolutions don't make themselves, and we're not afraid to upset the status quo. After all, it's more fun that way. We believe in the power of humans to create real change. Because the future is a luxury...make love to it.

Aether Alchemy

Step 1:

CO2 is Captured from the Air

Atmospheric collectors pull carbon dioxide air pollution straight out of the sky. As the air is drawn in, the CO2 is captured in a special filter. Our first-of-its-kind diamond alchemization process is set into beautiful motion.

For every 1 carat diamond, we remove 20 tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere.

Aether Alchemy

Step 2:

CO2 is Processed into Raw Materials

The captured CO2 is then synthesized into a usable hydrocarbon raw material perfect for growing diamonds. All other lab-grown diamonds use carbon that is sourced from fossil fuels through oil drilling and fracking. We are proud to be the world’s first diamond to use carbon from a source that isn’t from the earth.

Aether Alchemy

Step 3:

Diamonds Grow in Reactors

The hydrocarbon raw materials are placed into powerful reactors that create the optimal environment for growing a diamond. The diamonds grow in our lab one ambitious atom at a time, as the carbon perfectly aligns into crystalline form.

All the energy used to power the growth of our creations is from clean, sustainable sources.

Step 4:

The Finishing Touches

The growing process continues for 3-4 weeks until the exact moment when it’s reached peak perfection. The rough diamonds are then sent to our expert craftspeople to cut, polish, and set them into jewelry by hand.

The Vision

Creating the world's first positive-impact diamonds is just the beginning, and we are committed to becoming an independently carbon-negative company by 2023. We're actively building a future where we generate our own renewable energy sources, returning excess clean power to the grid. Until then, offsets neutralize our operational impact as a whole, and help shift the industry from old power to new.

  • No Dirty Energy

    Our diamonds require only half the energy use of mined diamonds, and ours is all sourced from sustainable energy providers instead of fossil fuels.

  • No Water Wasted

    Our process saves 127 gallons of fresh water typically used per mined carat. Additionally, we spare billions of gallons annually from acidic run-off from mines.

  • No Earth Uprooted

    We keep it all above-ground, in stark contrast to the up to 250 tons of earth — and in effect, entire ecosystems — that are removed per mined diamond.

  • No Conflicts Funded

    It's estimated that at least 60% of mined diamonds sold in the U.S. have problematic ties to military governments and corruption. Aether is 100% conflict-free and always makes decisions with the wellbeing of life on earth in mind.

  • Cleaner Air

    While Aether diamonds remove carbon dioxide from the air and clean up the atmosphere, mined diamonds create 143 lbs of emissions per carat.

  • All-Human Loving

    Buying an Aether diamond means you can be sure your money will never support any form of child labor, unfair or unhealthy working conditions, displacement of indigenous communities or depletion of natural resources.
