Anouk Jewelry specializes in designing non traditional and bespoke engagement rings and wedding bands. The salt and pepper diamond is a great alternative to a classic white diamond ring. These diamonds are named after the black and white inclusions, which give the stone a silky gray and speckled look. Inclusions are small imperfections inside of a diamond. These inclusions can be black, white, or another color, and have many different shapes and sizes.
No two stones are identical, and therefor each gemstone is unique and one of a kind. And that’s exactly what we’re after! We love setting unique gemstones in personalized and custom pieces. Below, we have set a pear shaped salt and pepper diamond in a hammered white gold solitaire setting. Next to it is our popular Vintage Rosetta design in white hammered gold. It features a central half-carat salt and pepper diamond in a halo of accent diamonds.
As you can see in the Vintage Rosetta engagement ring above, the salt and pepper diamonds can look stunning set in the warm yellow gold, the soft rose gold, or in a cooler white gold. The diamonds themselves can be lighter or darker, more clear or cloudy. The sky is the limit when you select the perfect stone for your non-traditional engagement ring!
Above is our nature-inspired alternative engagement ring design called Emerging from the Leaves. A beautiful, oval salt and pepper diamond set in hammered gold leaf-shape prongs. The non-traditional v-shaped curved wedding band fits snugly around the solitaire, which showcases the engagement ring’s unique shape perfectly.
If you love salt and pepper diamonds as much as we do, you are welcome to wear them closer to your heart! Anouk Jewelry’s hammered gold Necklaces are a great way to show off your unique gemstones. The piece above is our Seashore Solitaire Necklace on a 18″ gold chain. It features a striking 6mm salt and pepper diamond in a simple hammered gold setting. Elegant and timeless!
When working with clients and creating custom pieces, we source our ethically-mined gemstones according to your preference, style and budget. Typically we present a selection of gemstones to choose from. Each piece is fully customizable and available in yellow, rose or white gold.
