Today’s new crop of branded lab-grown diamond jewellers is, without any doubt, bringing fresh energy and excitement to the world of jewellery. Recognised as a product category that packs significant potential, lab-grown diamonds are capturing the attention of millennial and Gen Z consumers with jewellery designs that are edgy, youthful and modern. The fact that these brilliant beauties are also more affordable compared with mined gems enhances their appeal among budget-conscious consumers, especially first-time diamond buyers.

On 17 June (Thursday, 9pm HKT), join us for “Lab-Grown Diamonds: Rising Stars of the Jewellery Industry” webinar featuring industry experts Marty Hurwitz, CEO and Founder of THE MVEye, and Zulu Ghevriya, CEO and Co-Founder of lab-grown diamond jewellery brand, Smiling Rocks.

Also joining our panel is Diana Verde Nieto, Co-Founder and CEO of Positive Luxury, who will share her insights on how luxury brands could contribute to a more sustainable world, the significance of The Butterfly Mark, and why sustainability is increasingly important to today’s consumers.
