Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines: Las Vegas is just a little over two weeks away. And while my head is swimming with the delightful prospect of seeing the newest, loveliest trends to grasp our industry, one style on JCK Marketplace is shouting the loudest: Raw. Uncut. Natural. Whatever you choose to call them, these diamonds and gemstones have climbed to the top of many a jewelry lover’s wish list. I love the organic, artful look of each and every piece. Sure, they don’t sparkle like faceted gemstones, but these natural jewels are so rich and dazzling in their own right.
Todd Reed’s Raw Diamond Band
Perhaps one of the greatest examples of the beauty of raw diamonds, Todd Reed’s palladium band features 16 cts. t.w. raw diamond beads.
Rahaminov’s Rough Slice Pendant
Rahaminov Diamonds adds polish to the 5.84 ct. natural diamond slice and surrounds it with sparkling round diamonds, creating an icy look that mixes down-to-earth with downright glam.
Khushboo’s Colored Sapphire Earrings
Khushboo’s chunky earrings are made with 33.11 cts. t.w. pear-shape natural sapphires and 1.71 ct. t.w. natural diamonds.
Laurie Kaiser’s Lemongrass Ring
Lemongrass is an appropriate moniker for Laurie Kaiser’s earthy ring featuring a natural raw diamond at center encased in rich 18k yellow gold.
ZDNY’s Black and Natural Earrings
Dramatic glitz comes from ZDNY’s dropped circle earrings, with 6.04 cts. t.w. natural diamonds sitting comfortably in a cradle of 2.62 cts. t.w. black diamonds.
