Au Naturel: Beautiful Colored Diamond Jewels

Going natural is trending everywhere else—why not jewelry, too?

All natural. No additives, no extra dyes. Organic fabrics and fruits. Unretouched photos and ads. We have officially become a nation of natural, with evidence of the concept everywhere from the grocery store to the runway. So I got to thinking where else the notion of natural would extend. Earthy, organic styles, recycled metals, and untreated stones are gaining more ground with designers, and it’s certainly no surprise, what with our demand for raw-but-refined. Nevermind the tremendous rarity and value associated with untreated stonesfar and away the largest benefit. But for the unknowing crowd, the one making purchases based on looks and trends, I have to wonder aloud when the demand for kale and kombucha translates directly to the kind of jewelry customersparticularly young onespurchase. Be it their engagement rings or fashion jewelry, customers (ahem, millennials), are starting to ask more questions about where their products come from, what they’re made of, and why. But no matter what generation of customer you’re working with, whatever the reason they’re in the market for natural diamond jewelry, you may not have to go too hard on the sales pitch—these gorgeous pieces speak for themselves.
