At London Fashion Week 2018, Queen Elizabeth II was
admiring our imperfect diamonds in the pieces of renowned London
jewellers. We were rather delighted
that the Queen had complimented our diamonds. She found it fascinating that
many people no longer craved the perfect diamond.
Our diamonds are mined from Botswana and cut by us in our
workshop in Surat, Gujarat, India. They
are responsibly sourced – from the mine to the market.
Rustic diamonds capture the imaginations of modern jewellery lovers as these raw flaws
reveal the stones’ natural origins. The use of these stones is also considered
sustainable, a point that is exceedingly important to eco-conscious millennial
consumers, as the use of irregular flecked and imperfect diamonds creates less
waste. A rustic diamond is far less taxing on the environment than
regular diamonds are. Because these diamonds come rough-hewn and raw,
they save much more time and resources than mining traditional diamonds. As a
result, we’re seeing a design wave of definitively unique jewellery that, by
nature, cannot be mass-produced.
