new trend alert!
orange and peach salt & pepper diamonds
Hey there! I'm Emma, the Junior Designer here at Jessica Flinn, and I'm thrilled to introduce you to a new gemstone trend that is starting to emerge - Orange and Peach Salt & Pepper Diamonds!
To start with, let's talk a little bit about Salt & Pepper Diamonds - they're different, they're unique and best of all, they're absolutely beautiful. Unlike the traditional clear, colourless diamond, Salt & Pepper Diamonds have black speckles or spots of carbon within the diamond. This adds a stunning natural and organic feel to the gemstones, making your engagement ring truly one-of-a-kind. We LOVE using Salt & Pepper Diamonds in our collections and sourcing them for our customers to use in bespoke pieces, so it's really exciting to give you this news!
Drum roll please... We love the warm, rusty tones of these orange and peach Salt & Pepper Diamonds so much, that we've decided to introduce them into a mini collection!
How do these gemstones have such fantastic colours, you ask? It's all thanks to the presence of iron and other trace elements within the diamond when it is being formed in the earth. Each diamond is truly unique, with it's own mix of colours and inclusions.
Most Salt & Pepper Diamonds are 'rose cut', which is a diamond cut with a flat or almost flat base, and facets that are cut into a curved shape, creating a domed top. This adds depth and texture to the diamond, making it extra special. Plus, rose cut diamonds are very often hand cut, so you know you're getting a gemstone that's completely one-of-a-kind.
With fashion designers incorporating orange and peach hues into their collections, 2023 is the year of warm, rusty tones, and we're here for it. That's why we decided that these Orange and Peach Salt & Pepper Diamonds would be the perfect addition to our made-to-order collection, with Ariana, Natalia and Charlotte taking centre stage.
These diamonds are perfect for the bride-to-be who wants something traditional but with a modern twist, and would particularly suit a warmer skin tone. Choosing a stone like this for your engagement ring will make it truly unique, and it will certainly stand out from the crowd!
And the best part? These warm, peachy tones look stunning in any metal colour, whether you choose our recycled white, yellow and rose golds or platinum. So, no matter what your preference, we've got you covered.
As if Salt & Pepper Diamonds didn't have enough going for them, they're also a great choice from an ethical standpoint. With many traditional, colourless diamonds, traceability can be difficult. Salt & Pepper Diamonds can be a more environmentally friendly and ethical choice, and support small scale cutting houses and suppliers.
At Jessica Flinn Fine Jewellery HQ, these beautiful gemstones have become fondly known as 'goldfish diamonds', for their resemblance to a koi fish in a pond. We've come across some beauties in our time, but these really do take the cake.

here's one we made earlier...
This stunning bespoke design was created for 'A', and was based on our gorgeous Elspeth setting.
The 1.10ct rose cut pear shaped translucent Orange and Peach Salt & Pepper Diamond is held in talon claws, with a V claw for extra security.
Complemented by two lab grown diamonds and set into a warm 18ct yellow recycled gold setting, we have never been more in love.
We are delighted that 'A' chose us to help her create the ring of her dreams, and what a beauty it is.
