Suncrest adds greens, pinks to its selection
Suncrest Diamonds recently unveiled a new line of green diamonds as well as the “Suncrest Pink Dazzling Diamonds” collection with pendants and earrings at market week in Las Vegas.

The “Pink Dazzling Diamonds” collection offers jewelry with a pink diamond in the center, suspended on a pivoting axis to increase the stone’s movement and sparkle while it’s being worn, the company said.

Suncrest said it is offering special pricing for retailers that want to add these loose diamonds or finished diamond jewelry to their in-store displays.

Based in Orem, Utah, Suncrest Diamonds uses the high-pressure, high-temperature (HPHT) process on natural diamonds to alter their color. They offer a full line of colored diamond jewelry in all ranges of pink, yellow and green, most recently unveiling diamonds in Radiant Orchid, the color chosen as Pantone’s 2014 Color of the Year.
