Cat Mask Pendant
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.
Two feline silhouettes are rendered in 18K yellow gold, their features defined with cutouts from a two-dimensional plane. Diamonds add texture to the scene: a single brilliant cut stone is set in the center, and four princess cut lab grown diamonds are arrayed around the outside, set in decorative frames that resemble stars.
