Natural Raw Beauty of Uncut Diamonds


As you know we are lovers of the Unusual, Unique and the Untamed beauty of jewellery design. Although the Uncut Diamond is not the most popular choice its is definitely a natural choice and one we would most certainly recommend to those seeking an alternative diamond engagement ring.

Untouched Beauty

In a rough cut stone the notorious light and sparkle of the diamond is something of a more subtle beauty. Untouched by man the uncut diamond has not undergone any polishing cutting and shaping by the human hand. In choosing an uncut stone you will find the process extremely personal, abandoning all notions of the ‘ideal’ proportion instead leaning towards an attraction based on your natural instinct and the stones natural form.

A popular choice with our customers is to mix the polished with the rough to gain rich contrasts of colour and light and texture.

This rough brown diamond brings a unique narrative of  the diamonds origins without sacrificing the the equally mesmerizing sparkle of the polished gem. Set on the wavy shank the overall feel is organic and harmonious.

Beauty As Nature Intended

Whilst inclusions and blemishes may in one instance lower the desirability of a cut stone these same apparent imperfections become part of the Rough’s character and story celebrating these distinct inclusions which add depth and curiosity. The uncut Diamond provides us with pure beauty just as nature intended and although it is true to say one diamond is never the same as the next this is so much more apparent in its natural state. Taken straight out of the ground each crystal is totally unique and although polishing techniques allow for all sorts of fancy cuts, every raw stone is its own unique shape and colour making it the perfect choice for a Bespoke piece of jewellery handmade specifically for you and your stone.

Beauty Without Sacrifice- Ethically Sourced Stones

We at Baroque have always supported the ethical side of our practice and it is important that where ever possible our stones are conflict free. Since the Kimberley Process was launch in 2003 we can now confidently say that all of our rough diamonds are ethically sourced and non conflict stones. As well as remaining committed to non conflict schemes such as the Kimberley Process and Ruby Fair (who source fair trade rubies in Tanzania) we also promote the use of green recycled gold with all of our collections are made here in Brighton. The overall outcome is a piece of jewellery which whilst be a design of beauty is also ethically sound.

Beauty And Size

This diagram illustrates the planning process a piece of  rough diamond will normally undergo. Cutting diamonds to the best possible cut usually means losing diamond carat weight in the cutting process. When considering a polished diamond there is always a compromise between beauty and size however with the uncut diamond nothing has been taken away and you will find you have a lot more rock for you money.

This Bespoke Engagement ring made exclusively by Baroque has a central rough cut diamond weighing approximately 7 carats, a beauty of a stone by any standards!! Again mixing up the rough and the polished to capture elegance and refined designs with raw materials.

    What is the cost of the brown (Champagne) rough diamond ring and a comparison price to a cut diamond of the same size.

    Could you please advise an estimated price for the 7 carat rough diamond yellow gold ring please.
    Much appreciated.

    1. Hello there Cristina,

      Thank you for your enquiry and apologies for the delay in getting back to you.

      At the time of manufacture the ring you like was about £11,000 but it really depends on what stone we can source for you so I would say that this would be the starting budget for this size of stone.
      Please do email us for further information on info@baroquejewellery.com or visit http://www.baroquejewellery.com to see other rough diamond commissions.

      Kind regards,

    Price and ordering instructions on the 18ct yellow gold Bepsoke ring set with a 7 carat rough diamond and brilliant round cut diamond shoulders.

    Also would prefer reclaimed/ recycled gold in a round simple setting with the same 7 carat style as the Bepsoke ring.

    Thank you

    Jeff

    1. Hello there Jeff,

      Thank you for your enquiry and apologies for the delay in getting back to you.

      We can manufacture anything in Fairmined/Fairtrade gold so that’s not problem. At the time of manufacture the ring you like was about £11,000 but it really depends on what stone we can source for you so I would say that this would be the starting budget for this size of stone.
      Please do email us for further information on info@baroquejewellery.com or visit http://www.baroquejewellery.com to see other rough diamond commissions.
