ABOUT SALT + PEPPER DIAMONDS:
Until recently, diamonds that weren't completely clear were thought to be inferior by society's standards. In recent decades, designers started to question the notion of "value" and the social norms associated with the white diamond. The once thrown away diamonds with inclusions, color variations, opacity, and ranging colors are now celebrated as unique, rare, and daring in the jewelry world. They are referred to as "rustic", "natural", or "salt + pepper" (if mostly clear with black inclusions). They're gaining popularity with independent designers, but are slower to catch on in the world of commercially-made jewelry. They grade differently than traditional white diamonds; the Four C's don't apply. Rustic diamonds have their own standards, and different levels of value based on rarity. Size/carat weight still affects pricing, as does the quality of the cut and polish on the stone. Some colors, such as salt + pepper, are rarer than others, and so will be more costly. Each rose cut diamond is hand-faceted and entirely unique. You can always find two VS1/H white diamonds, but finding two of the exact same rustic rose-cuts can be impossible. This makes each diamond one-of-a-kind!
