Diamond Foundry is proud to participate in the Pure Earth Benefit Auction again. This year's auction features our diamonds in a one-of-a-kind design by Pili Restrepo, and worn by actress and model Taliana Vargas (Narcos). The auction features the works of 30 leading jewelry designers, including Diamond Foundry’s in-house jewelry brand, Vrai & Oro.
All funds will support Pure Earth’s work around the world to clean up pollution, including efforts to teach artisanal gold miners to go mercury free. Participating designers created their pieces using responsibly-sourced materials, including mercury-free gold, to create styles that radiate a beauty that runs deeper than appearance.
The auction will conclude at the Pure Earth Benefit Bash on April 23, where Taliana and Pili, the Pure Gold Award recipient, will be in attendance.
Pure Earth identifies and develops clean-up strategies for the poorest communities where high concentrations of toxins have devastating health effects––a strong alignment with Diamond Foundry’s mission to revolutionize the diamond industry with world-positive aboveground diamonds.
This will be Diamond Foundry's second year to donate diamonds to this important cause.

In 2017, to benefit Pure Earth, New York-based jewelry designer Pamela Love teamed up with Diamond Foundry to create a pair of responsible sourced earrings. Made from mercury-free gold and set with our conflict-free, eco-friendly diamonds, the elegant designs were featured in Vogue, and shot on model Molly Bair by photographer Skye Parrott.
Diamond Foundry and Pamela Love both received the Pure Earth Impact Award for their commitment to sustainable practices.
