All About Salt and Pepper Engagement Rings

If you’re searching for an engagement ring that combines the very definition of a unique, unconventional center stone with the artistry of a handcrafted setting, you’ve come to the right place. A salt and pepper engagement ring is the perfect option for an individual seeking a center stone that is like no other.


What Is a Salt and Pepper Diamond?

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. Enter the salt + pepper diamond: these 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 come in all shapes and sizes, including unique shapes like hexagon, kite, and more.

So where do salt and pepper diamonds get their name? From their unique galaxy-like arrangement of black and white flecking. Often referred to as “rustic”, “natural,” or “salt and pepper”, no two salt and pepper diamonds are exactly the same. But unlike many of the more common “colorless” or “flawless” diamonds, these diamonds show their individuality through their stunning natural patterning.


Are Salt and Pepper Diamonds Real Diamonds?

Yes! Salt and pepper diamonds are naturally occurring diamonds that feature rare galaxy-like flecking. While they are less commonly seen in engagement rings than traditional white diamonds, salt and pepper diamonds are still real diamonds.


How Are Salt and Pepper Diamonds Graded?

Salt and pepper diamonds grade differently than traditional white diamonds; the Four C'sdon't apply. Rustic diamonds have their own standards, and different levels of value based on rarity. 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 will be impossible. This makes each diamond one-of-a-kind – just like your salt and pepper diamond engagement ring.


Are Salt and Pepper Diamonds More Expensive?

Since salt and pepper diamonds are real diamonds, they’re typically more expensive than a lot of other diamond alternatives, such as moissanite or lab-grown sapphires. However, you can expect a salt and pepper engagement ring to generally cost less than a mined white diamond engagement ring.


What Does a Salt and Pepper Diamond Symbolize?

Although there are some engagement ring styles (such as three stone engagement rings) that have a history of meaning (past, present and future), salt + pepper diamonds don’t have any particular historic meaning. However, due to their individuality and rare patterns, salt and pepper engagement rings are the perfect representation of the unique love that you share for your partner.


Are Salt and Pepper Engagement Rings Valuable?

Since salt and pepper diamonds are diamonds, they are inherently valuable and a rare, natural phenomenon. However, no two salt and pepper stones are exactly the same, making them valuable due to their uniqueness. Size/carat weight still affects pricing, as does the quality of the cut on the stone. Some colors and clarities, such as Salt + Pepper, are rarer than others, and so will be more costly.
