Salt & Pepper diamonds were all the rage this buying season at the Tucson Gem Show which I attend every February. Dealers, miners, artists and stone cutters all converge in the desert and present their best finds for the year.
It is an important place to see whats new, whats up and coming and what stones are hot. Now it is no secret that I have been a big fan of rose cut diamonds…as I chose one for my own engagement ring. I love the old world feel and how they are imperfect, yet beautiful at the same time. And each one is unique…kind of like every marriage. Ok…not just kind of…exactly.
This year Salt & Pepper diamonds were in high demand. If you saw some…you better buy them because if you walked off to think about it…they were gone. I have a lovely client in California who I was on the hunt for the perfect Grey rose cut diamond for a ring I was making for her. And these were perfect.
We set the Salt & Pepper diamond in 14k rose gold and added diamonds around the bezel. It came out so unique and beautiful. She was in love!
