My Gene Jewel utilises DNA to extract unique personalised patterns which we can then use to create beautiful pieces.

What is DNA and Genes?

In general terms Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) is a complex molecule that contains all the information necessary to build and maintain an organism. The different units of information that are made up of the DNA and determine an organism’s characteristics are known as genes.

DNA and genes are what makes you who you are!

How does the process work for creating My Gene Jewel?

The creation of a Gene Jewel involves 4 important steps.

  • A hair sample is obtained and treated to isolate DNA from the sample
  • The DNA sample is then purified and mixed with the correct volumes of selected colored genetic dye.
  • The solution is allowed to diffuse for a set time before being infused into a stone.
  • The stone, now infused with the colored DNA sample is professionally set into a stunning piece of jewellery.

How do you collect the DNA?

Before the extraction of the DNA from a hair sample in the laboratory, the hair sample is collected via kits that are posted to the customer. The kit contains a sealable bag which is marked to correspond to the required hair sample. The kit is then posted via a pre-paid envelope back to the laboratory for the creation process to begin.

Is each pattern different, even from the same DNA sample?

Yes, If a Gene Jewel is created with the same DNA samples and colours, the pattern formed would be different every time a Gene Jewel was created.
