Nature Intended Beauty
Untamed, Unique and Unusual! All of these come to our mind when we talk about raw, rough, rustic stones. Rough stone jewellery is gradually picking up popularity and hence, Kunjal Karaniya brings a photo feature on these untamed stones.

Although the polished and perfectly shaped stones are always popular but the rough and rustic stones are also not left behind. Untouched by man, the rough breaks the notion of ‘ideal’ and tilts towards ‘natural’. The imperfections befall to become the rough’s spirit, celebrating the intensity and inquisitiveness. It is perfect for the one who seeks individuality in adornment as it is rightly said, ‘Each diamond has its own story, and one diamond is never the same to the other’. Hence, what best than to adorn it in its natural and unique state.

This trend of rough stones started with the jewellers wanting to diminish their costs but is now more acceptable by consumers who love to articulate more of their individual style. It is a trend rising on the diamond market, where rough unpolished stones now are hunted by the jewellery designers and jewellery manufacturers for their character, uniqueness and authenticity.

Nevertheless, this trend is not really novel, but took place almost a decade ago with underground German stone-cutters crafting inventive pieces that pressed the limits, and have ever since been in trend around the globe. However, it is only now that it is getting notice and gaining popularity so much that it is being chosen by big brands such as Tiffany’s, Cartier and De Beers.

Hence, in this feature, we would like to share few of such beautiful pieces.

Talisman Collection by De Beers
With High Jewellery pieces and an array of stunning jewelled creations, the collection is an invitation to become part of the story in which each talisman is intimate and unique to the beholder. Inspired by legend, the talisman collection is a pure expression of DeBeers design and has passed into the realm of iconic contemporary classic. Totally untouched by man, diamonds in their roughest, purest form provide an organic feeling of being a gift of nature, accentuating the rare and very special sensation of connecting with an antique treasure.

Deeta Thakural
Thakural, a young artist who takes asymmetry and bold simplicity as the key concepts to her design and raw spontaneity of the nature being the core of her inspiration; her creations reflect the depth and rich opulence of nature itself. Eyecatchy organically shaped diamonds are combined within asymmetrical silhouettes with modern aesthesis to create an edgy and a wearable style. Brown, Grey and Black Diamonds emphasizes the earthy mood of her jewellery. In both Rose Cut and Slices. Deeta promotes a new age sensibility that displays a confluence of modern and classic interpretations through her asymmetric designs that unite rough and polished gems seamlessly in quirky and enticing arrangements.

Iceberg collection by Diamond in the Rough
In their ‘Iceberg’ collection, each jewellery piece contains a large whole octahedral diamond that is half submerged under smaller paveset diamonds. In these pieces, the octahedral rough diamond looks like an iceberg, and the smaller diamonds look like snow or waves of water

‘Astra Collection’ by Diamond in the Rough
Uncut diamonds are readily available in a rainbow of colours, as seen in these chandelier earrings from the “Astra” collection by Diamonds in the Rough. These stunning earrings feature 45.95 carats of rough diamonds ranging in colour from dark brown to light yellow, accented with 1.97 carats of polished diamonds.
