In our closed-loop ecosystem, we follow each diamond’s journey, from the moment it is unearthed at the mine through the entire production process, ultimately arriving with a consumer.
A physical closed-loop
Provenance matters, making lineage crucial to knowing the impact of a diamond.
Therefore, we vertically integrated the supply chain, controlling every aspect, from the moment a diamond is excavated. In this physically closed loop, a diamond never leaves HB’s Mineral Infrastructure during its transformation from rough to polished.
Backed by a digital closed-loop
We developed a proprietary Internet of Things (IoT) device, the HB Capsule, to collect over 3000 verification points, from the discovery of the stone, throughout the production process until it’s ready to go to an end consumer. All this data is immutable and stored on a state-of-the-art HB Ledger created in partnership with Microsoft. By doing so, HB replaces trust with verifiability, which provides a significant advantage to all our stakeholders: mines, governments, and consumers.
