The Space Collective follows in the footsteps of US-based Dianna Rae Jewelry, which announced its intention to become the first jeweler to send diamonds into space last month. Dianna Rae plans to send a batch of gems priced from $745 to $2 million to the International Space Station in the early summer of 2022.

The Space Collective says it will send diamonds ranging from $2,500 for a 0.3-carat stone to $45,000 for a 2.0-carat aboard a SpaceX Dragon capsule in September 2022. The gems will spend six to eight months in space and then be available to buyers in June 2023.
