Created with real diamonds

Gemballa has introduced the world's first interior and exterior diamond coating.

Described as "equally attractive to both ladies and gentlemen of sophistication," the coating is created by grinding diamond into small pieces and turning them into a paint-like substance. As CEO Andreas Schwarz explains, "Our complex process uses genuine diamonds as its key ingredient - not metal pigments, glass fragments, or crystals."

The end result speaks for itself as the coating has a highly reflective finish that glistens in sunlight.

GEMBALLA's Ultimate Automotive Finish is a Genuine Diamond Coating

Diamonds may be considered "a girl's best friend", but now premier automotive tuner, GEMBALLA, has created a very special "gem" that should be equally attractive to both ladies and gentlemen of sophistication. This is the world's first diamond coating for the interior and exterior finish of vehicles. More than just a special paint, this technically elaborate and exacting diamond finish is hard to beat in terms of exclusivity.

"When GEMBALLA speaks of diamonds, we really mean it", explains CEO Andreas Schwarz. "Our complex process uses genuine diamonds as its key ingredient - not metal pigments, glass fragments, or crystals."

Apart from having the strongest light refraction properties of all the precious stones, which explains their seductive twinkle, diamonds are one of the hardest naturally occurring substances known to man. The word ‘diamond' means ‘invincable' and speaks volumes by itself.

The requirement that the coating had to be applied like paint defined the dimensional limit of each individual gemstone. The challenge for GEMBALLA was to grind the diamonds into a size small enough for their intended purpose, without losing their brilliance. Since a diamond reflects light according to the number of facets showing, this actually turned out to be an advantage. The greater the number of stones present in a given area, the greater the refractive surface, so the thousands of facets reflecting the light through the innovative GEMBALLA process creates an incomparable shine.

With a company philosophy that has always been focused on the ultimate and the best, this new diamond finish fits the GEMBALLA portfolio perfectly. And as diamonds are a form of carbon formed under extreme heat and pressure, they are the perfect finishing touch for the carbon-fibre bodywork of GEMBALLA's ultra-exclusive cars.

I would scrape some paint off the hood if I see one, and become rich... So I can buy a proper Gemballa car, a carera GT maybe.

In diamond factories after the cutting diamonds, the left overs doesn't worth much. Similar to gold flakes. Mixing it with paint and painting the car will give it a shiny glowing look. I would like to see rolls royce ghost in this paint and black interior with some diamonds on the dashboard.

Hmmm, not sure if we should believe that. 1st of all- providing that you get enough diamonds togethr to do this, it would cost more than just about any car (unless they are industrial diamonds, which you can't really count as being the real deal). 2nd- GRINDING them? With what? I can't think of anything that could actually grind a diamond. Lasers can sut and shape them, but grind?!? Or are they talking abt.zirconias? I call for scientiffic proof before I even consider believing this.
