The Gemesis Corporation through the International Gemological Institute (IGI) has initiated the first-ever program to assist retail jewelers, designers and consumers to clearly identify laboratory-created diamonds. IGI is providing laser inscriptions and identification reports for all Gemesis-created diamonds weighing 0.25 carats and above. IGI will laser inscribe each Gemesis-created diamond using its patented LaserscribeSM process. The term "Gemesis created" will appear on the stone's girdle along with a serial number that is subsequently stored in IGI's database and matches the Institute's identification report number. In order to differentiate Gemesis-created diamonds, IGI has also developed a "lab-created" specific identification report for Gemesis, which includes cut, dimensions, weight, and a photo illustration.

Gemesis Cultured Diamonds are individually grown in our laboratory facility. Each Gemesis diamond is unique; each can be certified for its cut, color and quality just like it’s earth mined counterpart. Consequently, Gemesis diamonds are certifiable by the major gemological institutes, such as the European Gemological Laboratory ( Gemesis continually works with diamond industry laboratories and institutes to provide consumers with complete disclosure regarding the quality and origin of Gemesis-created diamonds. We are currently exploring additional means to mark our diamonds in conjunction with certification in order to ensure the consumer that they are purchasing a high-quality Gemesis Cultured Diamond.


Michael Drechsler Jewelry Ltd . Vancouver, BC, August 5, 2004

Michael Drechsler Jewelry Ltd today announced a Canadian Wholesale Distribution Partnership with Gemesis Diamonds to carry GEMESIS ™ yellow cultured diamonds. Michael Drechsler Jewelry Ltd. will distribute these diamonds to both the Canadian jewelry retailers as well as the Canadian public.

Gemesis Cultured Diamonds range from one-quarter to 1.75 carats and have beautiful colours ranging from fancy yellow to fancy vivid yellow-orange to orange. Gemesis cultured diamonds are now available as individual diamonds and can be readily matched in striking multiple diamond sets and set as three stone rings or earrings. These diamonds enable Michael Drechsler Jewelry to create outstanding cultured diamond jewelry at an afforadable price compared to natural fancy colored diamond prices.

Michael Drechsler Jewelry Ltd. is the only jeweler to launch these beautiful yellow cultured diamonds to both the Canadian retailers and the Canadian public. Canadian retailers will be able to purchase these diamonds from Michael at a wholesale price. As well these diamonds will be sold to the Canadian public and will be designed into exquisite jewelry by Michael. The Canadian retailers and the Canadian public can view the many beautiful selections of diamonds on the website.

These brilliant yellow to orange diamonds have been featured on The Today Show, ABC World News Tonight, Good Morning America, CNN and MSNBC.

Similar to cultured pearls, Gemesis Cultured Diamonds begin their growth with a tiny diamond seed. Gemesis then recreates the proper combination of high temperature and high-pressure that nature uses to form a diamond and steps aside to let the natural diamond growth take place in individual diamond growth chambers. Once each individual diamond is grown by Gemesis; it follows the same process of cutting and polishing as any other diamond, which can then be placed into jewelry. Gemesis Cultured Diamonds possess the same hardness, brilliance, and "fire" of earth-grown diamonds.

"We believe Gemesis Cultured Diamonds will sweep the Canadian market because it gives customers and retailers a chance to experience the beauty of yellow diamonds in designs that would otherwise be unattainable with mined yellow diamonds said Michael Drechsler, owner of Michael Drechsler Jewelry Ltd." Gemesis is proud to add Michael Drechsler Jewelry Ltd to our line up of retail partners," said Carlos Valeiras, President and CEO of The Gemesis Corporation.
