Gemstones have fascinated me since I was a little girl. I collected them and sorted them neatly in the set box and wrote on them. Read reference books and wrote summaries. Does it not therefore lack a certain irony that today, after 20 years of banking, I have become self-employed with the most expensive and valuable stone?

Diamonds fascinate!

  • King of the gems
  • In value the most expensive in relation to size and weight
  • Hardest material on earth (Mohs scale 10)
  • Almost indestructible
  • Optically isotropic with high light refraction and high dispersion

When cut, the brilliance of a diamond outshines everything else and therefore attracts the attention of many.

Today, technological progress makes it possible to produce “real” diamonds in the laboratory. This gave me the opportunity to purchase a larger, better quality diamond for myself that I would never have been able to afford otherwise. The fact that the diamonds from the laboratory are more ethical, social and environmentally friendly convinced me even more.

The feeling of happiness when I was able to look at my lab diamond for the first time was the initial spark for my start-up. It was stunningly beautiful, sparkling and glistening like crazy and shining in all the colors of the rainbow. It almost blew me away and I was overjoyed when independent goldsmiths and gemologists also confirmed to me that this was a “fantastic quality diamond”.

I want to give people access to diamonds (white & fancy color) that meet ESG criteria and can be had at massively cheaper prices.

As a perfectionist, I want to be able to consistently 1) Sustainability & ESG (diamonds, jewellery production, wooden jewellery boxes, cardboard packaging, etc.) and 2) Provide top quality (diamonds & jewelry).

With Green World Diamonds we produce quality jewellery of the highest standard. We deliberately produce in Switzerland in our goldsmith’s studio. We have the latest technologies (CAD) and our own stone setters to offer our customers the perfect jewelry.

Green World Diamonds is more than just a business to me, it is my passion, my passion. White or colored diamonds become more affordable through Green World Diamonds. I would be delighted if you would become part of establishing Green World Diamonds as a new luxury label in Switzerland. We will find the perfect diamond and jewelry for you….
