Natural Diamond Crystal Jewelry - Jewelry created with natural uncut rough diamonds

Below is a gallery of jewelry created with natural uncut rough diamonds. These uncut rough diamonds are crystals with natural sparkle making them perfect for use in jewlery without faceting. These are real diamonds that gemstones are made from - not Herkimer Diamonds that are common quartz.

Using rough diamonds in jewelry is a major trend in jewelry today. Of course the practice of using raw diamonds dates back at least to Roman times when they were commonly found in men's rings. But recently major diamond jewelry companies have created their own lines. DeBeers introduced their line called Talisman in 2006. A new company Diamond in the Rough introduced a large 305 carat rough diamond necklace was prominantly feateued in Neiman Marcus 2007 Christmas Book for $1 million.

The success of these top teir jewelry companies marketing rough diamond jewelry has created demand from independent jewelry designers that are interested in the lower overhead cost possible because the expense to have each diamond faceted by a master diamond cutter has been eliminated.

Below are some examples of recent jewelry designs using natural uncut diamond crystals.
