18ct Gold Diamond Ring
18ct Yellow gold 5mm round salt and pepper diamond ring with textured band. Stamped with Edinburgh Castle hallmark.
Salt and Pepper diamonds are formed deep within the earth, under extreme heat and pressure so most diamonds have small birthmarks called inclusions. Inclusions come in all colours, shapes and sizes and these are what affects the diamond’s ‘clarity’. The name Salt and Pepper Diamond refers to diamonds with a high presence of Salt which is white inclusions and Pepper which is black Inclusions visibly flecked. These beautiful imperfections give the diamonds an interesting and unique look and no two diamonds will have the same pattern of inclusions so they are totally unique.
