"natural" diamonds: buy extraordinary
if you are selecting a diamond ring, consider our one-of-a-kind rosecut diamonds. these stones are absolutely individual. unlike the conventional diamond, these stones are for the discerning customer who appreciates the unique, the exceptional and the unusual. they range in color from milky gray to moss green to transparent white to lemon yellow, and are characterized by fiery bursts of color and mineral glitter. their variations in shade are only enhanced by the small clouds, feathers and flecks considered flaws in the diamond industry. these so-called blemishes turn our natural diamonds into miniature universes that sparkle with every change of angle.
