Press Release (ePRNews.com) - PLYMOUTH, Ind. - Jul 20, 2017 - On October 4, 2016, a 2.86 carat rough diamond came out of the ground at one of the famous De Beers diamond mines. This was the very beginning of a long journey this gemstone would take to become The Providence Diamond. Every step of the journey has been documented by the Gemological Institute of America in a new book, “The Providence Diamond”, available exclusively from Fernbaugh’s Jewelers in Plymouth.
Providence is a term used to refer to loving care extended over the course of time. This makes it the perfect name for diamonds, which take years to form in conditions of high heat and extreme pressure. The De Beers mining company operates in Canada, South Africa, Namibia and Botswana. After The Providence Diamond was discovered, it was cut: an exacting process that resulted in an exquisitely beautiful 1.01 carat round brilliant diamond – the perfect center stone for a very special engagement ring.
The Providence Diamond was graded by the GIA, the Gemological Institute of America. The GIA is the world’s foremost authority on diamonds, colored gemstones, and pearls, and sets the standards customers rely upon to know they’re buying truly superior jewelry.
The next step on The Providence Diamond’s journey was to http://fernbaughs.com, in Plymouth. There it was set in a custom engagement ring, going on to play a starring role in the engagement of one special couple.
The entire story of The Providence Diamond’s journey is documented in a new book, available exclusively from Fernbaugh’s Jewelers. Lori and Brian Van Duyne, co-owners, worked closely with the GIA to produce The Providence Diamond book. They hope to repeat the process for more of their customers.
“It’s really very neat to be able to track the history of the diamond in your ring from the moment it came out of the ground until it went onto your finger,” Lori Van Duyne said. “The book documents the quality of the diamond, of course, but it also makes clear that this diamond was produced in an environmentally responsible way, taking the human dignity of all of the workers involved into account. These issues are so important, and we have the power to make a difference with the choices we make. And of course, the diamond is really exceptionally beautiful.”
