This rings in the photos have sold. I have more stones of this size and clarity; please get in touch to have your own custom diamond ring made for you. You may also have your stone prong-set, instead of bezel set, using this listing- please make a note with your preference in the 'note to shop' box during checkout.
This ring is built around a gorgeous, shimmery, eye-clean rough diamond. My rough diamonds are certified conflict-free. They are also ethically purchased by my dealer. The rings are solid gold, in your choice of karat and colour. The gold is certified recycled, and comes from an American smelter with over 100 years in the business. They operate their smelting plant at the highest possible environmental standards. With these rings, you can rest assured that you are getting the most ethically-sourced, environmentally-sound engagement ring possible.
You see two rings in these photos; one is made of 14k yellow gold, and the other, 14k white gold
The yellow gold ring shows a hammered, brushed texture. This particular diamond is a triangular-shaped macle. It has an intricate, striated surface, no visible inclusions, and a clear, white colour.
The white gold band shows a high-shine texture. The diamond is a crystal formation, and has a rounder form than the triangular macle.
I have these diamonds (about 4mm a piece, but larger are available at an additional cost) in both shapes. The diamonds in the listing are around .35-.40 carats in size. These diamonds are VS clarity, and are very white in colour. Raw diamonds are difficult to photograph properly- these stones have more shimmer and shine than I can show in these photos.
The bands on these rings are a 2.5 x 1.5mm half-round profile. This is my most popular ring band. Flat/rectangular profile bands are also available. Also, I can make these in any width from 2mm to as wide as you would like.
Possible finishes on the ring include:
You can check out the appearance of these finishes in my shop.
Please note that I do not rhodium plate my white gold- I much prefer the warm colour of white gold when it is not plated. I also prefer my rings be as maintenance-free as possible- plating needs to be redone yearly.

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.
