Unusual engagement rings: Beauty in the Raw


While Raw Oysters may have been an indulgence of sorts, are raw and organic diamonds much the same? Do you believe that raw diamonds might have an important role to carve the idea of unusual engagement rings?


Most people look for engagement rings that are distinct and which nobody has already, so unusual engagements rings are the more usual phenomena. The engagement ring should be exactly like your soulmate, complementing your personality like a perfect match.

You want a ring that stands out of the crowd? It’s time to invest in raw or organic diamonds!


The Raw Truth

Like raw emotions, raw or organic diamonds are often statement pieces of their own sort. A great alternative to the usual cut diamonds, these raw diamonds are uncut, untouched and pure (much to their name). Raw diamonds do not have cut diamond certifications of gem quality like standards for cut, colour or clarity but they can often be as clear as VVS1.

The raw diamonds offers pristine quality which can be found only in a gem that is not hampered by the human hand. Seeking unusual engagement rings? You will love what you see!

-More Inclusions: These unspoiled diamonds have more inclusions making them distinctive and unusual.

-Interesting Shape: They are not cut to any shape by the jeweller and hence the shape is unique. They usually have a flat base, triangular facets that create a crown and a circular outer edge. They are believed to have no exact duplicates so if you are looking for a pair, you will have to be extremely lucky or one will have to be tailored. The cut is often called the rose cut since it resembles the petals of a rose bud.

-Reasonable Price: While you may not be looking to save the money, but money saved is always a bonus. Since your diamond has not been tailored, it does not have the added costs of extended manpower. Your spouse can thus have an unusual ring without you being declared broke. A 6 mm raw diamond is comparable to a one carat solitaire but will cost you only a fraction of the cut diamond.

Crystal Power

While the raw and organic terms are often used interchangeably, they are not much the same.

The organic diamond tends to have a solid tone that may not give it the clarity of a typical diamond but the look it offset by the pure and rich colour. The solid tone is what sets it apart.

Raw diamonds on the contrary are mostly a crystal matrix. You can almost picture them as two pyramids with the first inverted on the top of the other. they have a stunning effect and set in a spectacular ring they can make for the most unique engagement ring.

Unusual engagement rings are usually defined by two thoughts – ‘the less is more’ and ‘the more the merrier’ and for raw diamonds, they both stand equally true. The diamond will cost less but there will never be an exact duplicate. So engage your partner with the rawest form of you, and that with a raw diamond.
