Over the last few years, Gemesis, a company which sells "cultured" diamonds has gradually grown and they are now getting more designers to work with their stones. Last year designer Taryn Rose created a line using Gemesis stones and now Florida-based designer Lee Havens is displaying an impressive yellow cultured diamond necklace in his Palm Beach shop. The $500,000 necklace was created by Gemesis and features 72 stones for a total of 64 carats. The necklace is being sold to benefit The Foundation for AIDS Research (AmFAR) along with other pieces created by Gemesis such as rings and pendants priced from $20,000 to $40,000. Ten percent of sale proceeds will go to the charity.
