PLEASE NOTE: All four of the diamonds shown in this listing have been sold. They are no longer available. This listing is for a similar ring, with a similar sort of diamond. However, please understand that I do have to source your diamond specifically for your ring. Please contact me prior to purchasing, so we can discuss the exact sort of diamond you are looking for, and I can source the stone for you.

Please note: The ring in the photos has been sold. Your custom ring will be built for you upon ordering, using the stone and gold colour of your choice. Because I hand-fabricate each element of these rings by myself in my studio, I am able to use a wider band, create any texture on the ring, or build this in platinum if you prefer. Just get in touch through the shop or through email at treloar [!at] telus.net with any questions or requests- I am happy to help you.
-solid recycled 14k or 18k gold band, or solid platinum, 2.5 x 1.5mm half-round profile
-solid gold or platinum bezel, faceted texture and textured lip or smooth texture if you prefer
-yellow, rose, or white gold
I specifically chose this selection of diamonds from my dealer because of their large size and crystal clear transparency. They are incredibly icy and frosty looking, and remind me of textural ice chips. The photos are all taken at 7x magnification, to show you all of the surface details.
A. 8 x 5.5mm, 1.17 carats, mountainous glittery texture- SOLD- shown in the photos of the ring with the prong set diamond
B. 7.5 x 5.5mm, 1.08 carats, mountainous glittery texture- SOLD
C. 9 x 5mm, .82 carats, smoother texture with a single horizontal inclusion through its midline (this is a natural inclusion, not a crack)- SOLD
D. 6.5 x 7mm, .83 carats, macle/naturally triangular diamond with some natural surface texture and a rainbow inclusion to one side SOLD
The diamond shown in the ring took on a gloomy and more opaque appearance due to the low winter light I shot the photos in. The diamonds in this listing are all extremely bright and transparent, in keeping with their detailed photos.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.com
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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 email@example.com 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.
