This listing uses my Size E rough crystal cluster diamonds- see 'Raw Diamond Sizing' in my Shop Announcement: https://www.etsy.com/your/shops/Specimental
This two-ring set is perfect for everyday wear. The construction and the diamond are incredibly durable. These also make fabulous engagement and wedding rings for those of you looking for a more organic and natural-looking ring at an affordable price. The rings in this listing are sold, and the photos are used to show you an example of how they can appear when built.
The rings are environmentally and ethically sound, as the metal is recycled and the stones are conflict-free. The gold is smelted by a large, reputable smelter who deals in recycled metals. The diamond is Kimberley Process certified, following the United Nations' policy on conflict-free diamonds.
Each of my diamonds is in its raw, natural formation, and is conflict-free. These are my Size E diamonds- they are around 8-9mm, and are in the range of 4-6m high. If you would like the specific dimensions of any stone, please get in touch. This parcel of diamonds ranges in colour from snow white to pale silver. Please let me know which of the diamonds catch your eye- my diamond collection is constantly changing, and the ones show in the photos are examples of the types of stones I have on hand, or can obtain by request. My current parcel has stones that range from snowy white to translucent, silver, and yellow.
I hand-build an organically shaped four-, five-, or six-prong setting for your diamond. The prongs are made of sturdy 14k gold.
Please note that the final photo shows me wearing one of these rings- I have big man-hands :) My pinky finger is a size 5.5, so not much smaller than many women's ring fingers. Please use a rule to get an adequate idea of the scale of the diamond and the ring band.

IMPORTANT: When purchasing from Specimental, please be aware of and in agreement with the Shop Policies- please read them here: https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/Specimental?ref=seller-platform-mcnav#policies This section contains important information about production, shipping, sales taxes, and returns/exchanges. Have questions? Contact me through the shop, or at treloar [!at] telus.net
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
I am always open to hearing your design ideas. Please contact me through the shop, or at email@example.com to discuss design possibilities.
If you are unsure of your ring size, the best way to be sized accurately is by visiting two commercial jewelers. Please ensure they size you using their thin sizing tools- not the wide band sizing tools, nor by having you try on rings from their display.
If any questions arise around being properly sized, I am always happy to help- contact me through the shop, or at firstname.lastname@example.org
I don’t provide a gift wrapping service. Rings and earrings ship in jewelry boxes that are hot foil stamped with the Specimental logo.
If the person for whom you are purchasing the piece shares your address, please be aware of the following: International export law dictates that the detailed contents of packages, and their value, be clearly marked on the outside of the package. This means that if they see the package before you do, they can easily tell what they are being gifted with.
Need secrecy for this delivery? The very best option is to have your package held for you at your closest Fed Ex store- if you are unsure of its location, I'm happy to help.
Our hands are busy objects, and any ring worn on a finger can become accidentally damaged. All rings need regular maintenance. Make sure you are buying your raw diamond ring from a jeweler with the knowledge and experience needed to ensure your stone stays put. Ask them about their warranty and their repair/upkeep policy. Look at how frequently they work with raw diamonds, and assess whether they have the technical experience to create a ring that will last your lifetime.
I stand behind each piece of jewellery I make. If something goes wrong with your ring, at any time- you slam your finger in a drawer and crush the band, you break a prong, you smash and crack your stone- you can count on me to support you with the repair.
My gold is all recycled- the metal plant I purchase it from has been in business for over 100 years. They smelt their metals to the highest environmental standards, to cause the least impact on the environment. They do not deal with newly mined metals, as these metals cause much greater destruction to the environment.
There is no visible difference between recycled metals and newly-mined metals. There is also no difference as far as the karat of the metals go- 18k recycled gold is exactly the same in constitution as 18k newly mined gold. The vast majority of my clients prefer their metals recycled, as environmental impact is of concern when choosing the perfect piece of jewelry.
I can use your heirloom stones in a new design. The stones must be pulled from their settings and checked for stability by a professional jeweler prior to shipping them to me. I cannot recycle your gold. I am not set up to smelt gold in the studio, so am not able to melt down your old gold pieces for you.
My current production times are listed in my shop announcement. If you need something more quickly, please get in touch via the shop, or at email@example.com
Depending upon my work and family schedule, I am happy to accommodate your rush orders. There is no additional charge for a rush order. However, please do get in touch prior to ordering to discuss your deadline with me.
Yes! All of my pieces are completely hand fabricated in the studio by me, from raw materials. I am able to create any of my designs with any stone, in any composition. In short, you can have your ring absolutely any way you like it. Contact me through the shop, or via firstname.lastname@example.org to get the discussion around your perfect piece of jewelry started.
A raw diamond is an exceptionally difficult stone to set properly. Their unique shape means that a custom setting needs to be fabricated for each and every stone. The way in which the setting is closed around the diamond must be approached in a very particular fashion.
I began setting these stones into my rings in 2009, when only a small handful of jewelers were working with this type of stone. As the appeal of raw diamonds has exploded, countless numbers of jewelers are now incorporating them into their designs. I have set thousands of raw diamonds into my pieces since then.
