Salt and pepper diamonds have a beauty all of their own. With a wild, untamed feel and naturally occurring spectrum of black and white flecks, feathers, spots and clouds, each one is unique and each one has its own distinctive ‘salt and pepper’ pattern.
Why do we use them?
We are drawn to the unique and hard to find and because we only produce jewellery in small scale productions, uniformity is not a necessity and we are afforded the luxury of being able to select rare and exceptional individual stones from artisan gem cutters around the world.
The distinctive, aesthetic qualities of salt and pepper diamonds are as a result of the ‘imperfections’ that also makes them affordable. For comparison, a one carat salt and pepper diamond, will cost you approximately a third of that of a one carat white diamond; but if you are thinking about buying one, it really should be because you love the stone for its unique qualities, rather than the price!
Salt and pepper diamonds require far less processing than white diamonds, this means that their extraction is far less destructive to the environment - another great reason to consider these beautiful stones.
