Time Lapse

A Diamond Provenance Journey

Historically, diamonds have been incredibly difficult to trace. The manufacturing process is complex, with the diamond going through multiple touchpoints during the sourcing, cutting, and polishing processes and inevitably changing hands many times in the journey from the mine to the engagement ring. A diamond’s full provenance can often get lost in the process, which leaves jewellers with diamonds that can’t be qualified as ethically and sustainably sourced with full certainty.

While there are industry regulatory bodies such as the Kimberley Process who monitor ethical standards throughout the natural diamond supply chain, these are often paper-based systems that are unable to share each stage of the complex journey diamond goes through from mine to jeweller.

One of our suppliers has created their own system called the Diamond Time Lapse, a digital traceability program that records the entire journey of an individual diamond. Ensuring ethical and sustainability standards, Diamond Time Lapse has set the standard for how a diamond polisher can present a diamond’s journey in a user-friendly format.

The Diamond Time Lapse is the world’s most secure diamond provenance program. Now you can select a diamond that uses a digital record, the real time progress of a diamond’s voyage can be documented with exceptional detail. Not only do you know where your diamond came from, but you know which mine and which individual handled the diamond during every part of the process. Not only does this system provide incredible transparency, it also gives you insight into the unique history of your diamond.

As Diamond Time Lapse uses cutting edge technology, the platform itself is also very user-friendly. All you need is your diamond’s origin report number, and you can view or download your report anytime.
