Natural History Solitaire Diamond Band Ring

From £0.00

Full of character, this 0.6ct Antique Salt and Pepper Diamond would have been mined and shaped by hand at least 100 year ago, and has now been mounted onto a Natural History inspired band - to echo the ancient history of such a stone.

Product Description

Designed and handmade by our brilliant Bespoke team, this One of a Kind Natural History Ring is a refined balance of strong, yet detailed. The Black & White flecks within the Diamond are inclusions, visible features created when the diamond was first formed in the earth, and the untreated 18ct Fairmined White Gold perfectly compliments these shades. Stones such as this one may be referred to as ‘Breakout’ - as they have been taken from an old piece of jewellery to be repurposed, and we are proud to add to this incredible legacy.

Every One of a Kind comes with a certificate of authenticity marking its unique and special nature.

Traditional Diamonds

Long considered the most popular choice, ‘Traditional’ white diamonds are not actually white at all, with hues ranging from as colourless as a drop of water to having tints of light yellow, light brown or grey. One of the ‘Four C’s’ discussed in reference to diamonds refers to its Colour, with high value placed upon how close a stone is to being colourless - the rarest. Our white diamonds are sourced by our long-term and trusted supplier, Clark Diamonds, a UK based company whose stones all comply with the Kimberley Process.

Fancy Coloured Diamonds

Diamonds naturally come in many colours other than white, and are often referred to as ‘Fancy’. Coloured diamonds have their own grading system, and are valued for the intensity and distribution of their colour. Intense colour can also be achieved using a process of irradiation, but any diamonds used in Alex Monroe jewellery will always be natural in colour.

Antique Diamonds

Antique diamonds will have been mined and shaped by hand at least 100 years ago, meaning that the facets will be bigger and less uniform than those seen in modern stones. Although not as obviously dazzling, the sparkle of old cut diamonds feels deeper and warmer, with the eye drawn into the stone, instead of bouncing the light back out. Antique diamonds also perhaps offer a touch more romance, as they perform so well in low, or candle lit settings.

Lab Grown Diamonds

The subject of lab-grown Diamonds is one of much debate. They provide an option outside conventional mining, which is historically problematic for both social and environmental reasons - but could ultimately remove much-needed income from mining communities, and many ‘Labs’ often have an unknown or undisclosed environmental impact.

We chose to offer stones from The Diamond Foundry, the world’s first diamond producer to be certified with a zero carbon footprint. The Diamond Foundry’s production is based in Washington State and powered by the Columbia River using renewable hydroelectric power.
