Courbet

Who is Courbet?

During past years a new diamond emerges to disrupt an industry known to be conservative. Rather than being born in the depths of the earth, this diamond emanates from strong ethics, deeply held values, and from the most brilliant minds of Silicon Valley. The result is an opportunity for a more conscious choice. Introducing the Maison of Courbet: the jewellery brand derived from an alternative world class diamond. The mission of the Maison of Courbet is to offer the next generation of modern and ethical, sustainable and creative jewellery that respects the long held Place Vendôme traditions of the art of luxury jewellery.

What do you mean with ethical and sustainable ?

Courbet will only use diamonds created in laboratory as well as recycled gold.

We embrace our customer promise to never sell diamonds coming from mines since the mining industry has a significant negative impact on the health of our planet and the working conditions are not in line with our values.

What materials are you using ?

Courbet uses recycled gold and laboratory-grown diamonds.

What is recycled gold ?

There is 1 kg of gold in every ton of waste from electronics such as smartphones, tablets and computers. These precious metals must be recycled. Our suppliers of recycled 18K gold are mainly sourcing their gold from obsolete electronic goods. Based on the Gold Standard Institute, there is already more gold circulating above Earth than we will ever find in current or new mines. Let’s use and recycle this gold rather than continue to dig for more, pollute our planet and allow the polluting conditions that is unavoidable during extraction.

What is the quality of the stones that you are using?

Courbet is only using diamonds whose cut has been graded at least good.

Courbet is only using diamonds with the highest quality - D,E or F

Courbet is only using diamonds with clarity grading superior or equal to VS2.

Courbet is only using diamonds whose cut has been graded at least good.

As of 0.5 carat of weight, Courbet’s diamonds are systematically sold with a certificate from an independent internationally recognized gemological institute that will specify the grading of the 4 Cs aspects of quality.
