This ring is a custom, made-to-order piece. Please see my shop announcement for my current production time. The two rings in the photos have been sold, and are used to give you an idea of how they look. Please note that this listing shows a few photos of the diamond ring stacked with my multi-stone gold ring design- this listing is for the diamond ring only.
I find that both rose gold and raw diamonds are very changeable, depending upon the intensity and kind of light. The photos you see here were taken on an overcast day, in natural sunlight. To see a photo of this ring in brighter sunlight, look at this listing- this is also the listing for the matching wedding band: http://www.etsy.com/listing/79754612/rose-gold-wedding-and-engagement-ring
The ring is built around a single raw diamond. My diamonds are all conflict-free, and each is a unique wonder. They are used in the forms in which they grow. The one used in the ring you see here is a cube formation. I have other diamonds that are crystal clusters.
The ring itself is built from beautiful 14k rose gold which I had custom-milled for this ring design. The colour of the gold is the most lovely, warm pink colur. The diamond ring is made of 2mm wide ring wire, to which I have given a hammered finish. Matte lustre and high shine are some of the other finishes I can create on this thin ring band. The bezel is built of 14k rose gold which I milled to the correct gauge in my studio. I gave the bezel an organic, hand-brushed finish.
This particular diamonds in these two rings above are quite similar, and are cream coloured cubes. Please see this listing for the rest of my cubes in this size range (around the 5mm mark): https://www.etsy.com/listing/81472079/prong-set-cube-diamond-stacker-ring-in?ga_search_query=cube
The price for this listing reflects a ring up to a size 10. Larger sizes will incur a greater cost- please get in touch for a cost estimate for your ring size.
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.

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.
