JEWELLERY & WATCHES
Smiling Rocks is a lab grown diamond and jewellery brand based in New York, pioneering in fine and bridal jewellery. The co-founders, Manish Jiwani and Zulu Ghevriya, aim to build a chain of smiles through sustainable luxury. Smiling Rocks offers extensive fashion, engagement and wedding rings and bands featuring beautiful lab grown diamonds. Each collection and design is made for the jewellery lover and conscious consumer.
After 20 years in the natural diamond businesses, the co-founders established Smiling Rocks with a clear mission: they wanted to build a company that focuses on giving back through the industry they know best – diamonds and jewellery. Having researched lab grown diamonds for 15 years, they finally decided to introduce these innovative and sustainable diamonds through Smiling Rocks. The co-founders value sustainability and maintain the agenda of protecting the planet and supporting its main pillars by working together with NGOs, as well as monitoring the carbon footprint and impact of the business.

It is very important, especially today, for businesses to think about the planet and its wellbeing. We need to be more responsible and take chances to make changes and inspire others. This journey is very personal to my brother and me. I am very happy to see it come to life and experience the positive impact many individuals and communities experience through the involvement of our team, customers and partners.
