Homer’s diamonds are formed under the supervision of a team of materials engineers in the United States.
At our factory, it takes a diamond to make a diamond: each diamond enters existence as a 1/400th carat natural diamond seed. Over the course of four weeks—the same amount of time needed to form a diamond within the earth’s mantle—machinery precision-deposits layers of carbon over the diamond seed, and subjects it to the tremendous pressure and white hot temperatures necessary to form the stones the old fashioned way.
The result is the real thing. Not a replica of a diamond, or a close approximation, or a sparkly stone of similar substance. Each diamond is cut, polished, and inspected to meet Homer’s exacting standards before being independently graded by the International Gem Institute.
Wings are formed from delicate topographical tracery and set on either side of a sphere, inset with two brilliant cut lab-grown diamond eyes. Its body is made from rhodium plated recycled 925 silver and hand painted with enamel.
