This gorgeous diamond ring proves that jewelry does not have to be cut and polished to perfection in order to stop you in your tracks. In fact, it is precisely the rough-hewn, wabi-sabi aesthetic that this piece exudes that makes it so stunning. The organically shaped band is an alchemical wonder, formed from a rich alloy of 14 and 18 karat rose and yellow gold. The alternating hues of blushing rose and warm yellow orchestrate a fascinating play of light across the uneven surface of the ring. The centerpiece is a glittering rough cut .25 carat white diamond, framed within a 14 karat yellow gold claw setting.
