LUSIX

Lusix grows and produces superb quality lab grown diamonds, primarily for the gemstone market.  We offer both white and pink diamonds, all certified by the International Gemological Institute (IGI).

 

Lusix is part of the Landa Group, an Israel-based enterprise, comprising some fifteen companies. About half of the Landa Group’s 1400 employees are in Landa Ventures (the Group’s investment arm) portfolio of companies, while Landa Labs (the Group’s research center), Landa Digital Printing and Lusix account for the remaining 700.

 

Lusix extends to the diamond industry the vision, uncompromising determination and groundbreaking innovation which its founder, Benny Landa, has brought to other industries including digital printing, automotive coatings, hair coloration and solar energy. Just as each of these industries are being transformed by the breakthrough technologies developed in the Landa Group, so too the diamond industry is about to be transformed. Lusix is changing the rules of the game.

LAB GROWN DIAMONDS

Mother Nature and Father Science LOVE story

Lab grown diamonds have been a part of the diamond industry for many years. Recently, demand for lab grown diamonds has soared, as many of us choose to be more aware, more responsible and more accountable for the future of our planet and its people. For many, lab grown diamonds are the preferred choice the affordable and reasonably priced and for considered as an environmentally friendly. Lab grown diamonds, also called cultured diamonds, are the fastest growing sibling in the diamonds and jewelry family, as more and more buyers choose lab grown diamonds to commemorate the special moments which symbolize love, hope, purity, happiness and appreciation.

Employing the most scientifically advanced technology, Lusix has taken nature’s process of “atomic-self-assembly” to the extreme, producing pure, brilliantly radiant diamonds which have visual, physical and chemical properties identical to those of natural mined diamonds – but are eco-friendly and second-to-none in quality and value.

All diamonds are comprised of carbon atoms organized in a unique three-dimensional template, called a diamond lattice. Lusix has learned to control the power of atomic-self-assembly to grow gem quality diamond from a “seed” (a thin diamond plate) which serves as the starting template for the self-assembly of carbon atoms. High energy plasma supplies the carbon atoms that deposit on the diamond lattice and grow to become a pure single crystal diamond. During this process other atoms can be precisely added to control certain properties such as color.

In the Media

 

According to a consumer research study conducted in April 2018 with 1,010 male and female respondents, 21-40 years of age, by MVI Marketing LLC (MVI), nearly 70% of respondents in this study said they would consider a lab grown diamond for an engagement ring center stone.

 

“The poll, which surveyed more than 1,000 Americans, also found– Almost half the respondents—45 percent—said they wouldn’t mind receiving a lab-grown diamond: 43 percent of men and 47 percent of women.” – April 19, 2018 by ROB BATES – jckonline.com

 

“The most likely scenario is that the lab-grown diamond market finds its own niche, increasing the diamond jewelry market and taking limited market share from miners,” – Neri Tollardo, an analyst with Morgan Stanley’s Europe, Middle East and Africa Metals & Mining research team.

 

“Lab-grown diamonds are not fake. We must address the misconception that lab-grown diamonds are simulants or not “real diamonds.” This couldn’t be further from the truth. You may have also heard the term synthetic diamond and assumed this means fake. Actually, synthetic simply refers to the fact that these diamonds are man-made in a controlled environment.” – earth911.com

 

“Diamonds grown in the lab have matured enough in quality to compete against traditionally mined gems.” – morganandstanley.com

 

As documented in the Washington Post, “Lab-grown diamonds, which are quietly arriving in stores across the country, are increasingly marketed to younger Americans as an ethically sourced alternative to traditional diamonds. They cost about 20 percent less than mined diamonds and, according to experts, are indistinguishable to the naked eye. And yes, they sparkle. (All diamonds are made of just one element: carbon.)

“From our perspective, synthetic diamonds (Lab Grown Diamonds – Lusix) are diamonds,” said Stephen Morisseau, a spokesman for the Gemological Institute of America, a nonprofit organization that oversees the international diamond grading system. “They’re not fakes. They’re not cubic zirconias. They have all the same physical and chemical properties of a mined diamond.” (WP July 21, 2017 )

 

The $80 billion mined-diamond industry is at a tipping point as man-made diamonds are offering consumers a new option. When consumers are given a choice between buying a 1 carat mined diamond for $5,000 or a bigger 1.25 carat lab-grown diamond for the same price, more people are opting for the bigger lab-grown stone. It is virtually identical in quality and composition to the mined diamond, but without the human toll or negative environmental impact of mining operations. This is most especially important to the millennial generation. That is, if they are given the choice at the jewelry counter. – Pamela N. Danziger , CONTRIBUTOR,Forbes.com

 

“Millennials represent a significant opportunity for the diamond industry, but have different shopping behaviors, and product interests. One of those products that may come up in millennials’ research is laboratory-grown diamonds, which are growing in popularity” – CNBC (a segment from a 2017 article)

 

“If you’re defining ethical as knowing the source of a gemstone, then [lab-grown stones] are an ethical option,” – Arabel Lebrusán (From a Vogue Paris article)

 

“Lab-Grown ‘CVD’ Diamonds Market Expected to Grow More than 50X by 2026” – Kishalaya Kundu – April, 2018 (beebom.com)


Sales of lab-made diamonds, estimated to be about $150 million, could grow to $1.05 billion by 2020, according to a recent report by Morgan Stanley.
