Here at Metalmark, we are always up for embracing the latest trends in jewelry. Rustic diamonds are an alternative bridal trend we fully support. Each rustic diamond is unique and we love incorporating them into our custom designs.
WHAT ARE RUSTIC DIAMONDS AND HOW DO THEY DIFFER FROM "TRADITIONAL DIAMONDS"?
Rustic diamonds are diamonds formed with many inclusions, thus giving them a more organic look. We love the presence of visible inclusions that give these diamonds such a unique and amazing appearance- no two diamonds are the same. Rustic diamonds come in a myriad of colors and shapes. They are usually rose cut - with a flat bottom and a crown made up of small triangle facets, which imitate the petal of a rose.
WHAT ARE SOME REASONS TO WANT A RUSTIC DIAMOND?
For starters, they can be much cheaper than traditional diamonds. So many couples nowadays value the individuality of the stone and the beauty in the imperfections, rather than investing in the highest color & clarity. With major finger coverage for a lower price point, many 2019 brides are leaning toward these unique stones.
DO THEY COME IN MANY COLORS & SHAPES?
Yes! Rustic diamonds come in many geometric forms. Some of our favorite cuts include hexagons, kites & triangles. They also come in an array of colors - everything from pale pinks & yellow to salt & pepper, grey and black.
