What are Salt & Pepper Diamonds and why do we love them?
Not just an amazing 90's Hip Hop Girl group, Salt & Pepper are also an incredibly beautiful type of diamond!
Stunning Salt & Pepper diamonds are rapidly growing in popularity and I can definitely see why. These beautiful diamonds have a wild, natural beauty that is mysterious and luxurious in appearance. Ranging across a broad spectrum of beautiful grey tones, Salt and Pepper diamonds have recently become increasingly popular for engagement rings due to their unique colours, patterns and styles.
The distinctive “Salt & Pepper” pattern is created by inclusions and imperfections in the diamond that look like little speckles and flecks of white and black, creating a mottled, smoky effect. Salt and Pepper diamonds can include many different types of beautiful imperfection such as wisps, clouds or even tiny cracks inside the diamond. The beauty of Salt and Pepper diamonds is that no two are the same.
Inclusions are small imperfections found inside of a diamond. These inclusions can be black or white and come in many different shapes and sizes. Nearly all diamonds have some kind of inclusion, but they’re often so tiny that they can’t be seen by the naked eye. With salt and pepper diamonds, these inclusions are large and visible and transform the diamond’s overall appearance in a unique and beautiful way. Some will have more inclusions than others which creates a really strong speckled appearance. You’ll notice in our collection that there are dark and moody stones and then lighter, softer ones with just a few tiny specks. Others can look almost completely grey…either way each one is super versatile and can be paired with any outfit or nail colour! The versatility of these rings is one of the reasons they have become so popular.
Our Limited Edition collection is available in a variety of different colour stones and shapes. This means that you can choose the shade and shape that appeals to you the most. The gorgeous grey tones mean that these beautiful rings look amazing paired with other gemstones and diamonds or even a plain band however my number 1 styling tip would definitely be to put different shapes & colours together to create the most beautiful Salt & Pepper stack.
Salt and pepper diamonds are now becoming a highly sought-after alternative to traditional white diamonds, as many couples prefer the unique characteristics of this modern stone that doesn’t conform to the traditional idea of a classic diamond engagement ring. What’s even better, because a finding a flawless diamond with no inclusions is so rare, Salt and Pepper diamonds are usually less expensive than white diamonds however they still offer the same level of durability and beauty which is perfect for your forever ring.
Another reason that Salt and Pepper diamonds are so appealing is that they are far more eco-friendly than white diamonds. Salt & Pepper diamonds take far less resources and time to mine, which means they have less impact on the environment than other diamonds.
This stunning, natural stone is a wonderful celebration & reminder of why our imperfections make us truly beautiful!
We hope you love them just as much as we do
