Did you know that every Salt and Pepper Diamond is one of a kind?
It's true! Salt and Pepper Diamonds are naturally created with inclusions and color markings that make them each different. No two Salt and Pepper Diamonds are the same.
Salt and Pepper Diamonds have carbon inclusions, which are carbon black specks, within the diamond. These inclusions make Salt and Pepper Diamonds most desirable because they emphasize the characteristics of the diamond and highlight their beauty... it's like having a little painting of a masterpiece right on your hand.
Some of the inclusions look like speckles of a robin’s egg, others like big splotches of ink, and then some like a squiggle from a crack within a rock.
Translucency & Pricing
Pricing is based on translucency. The more opaque the diamond is, and the more solid gray, the less expensive the Salt and Pepper Diamond is going to be. The more translucent it is, meaning the more you start to see through the diamond, the higher in price it goes because it gets closer to a brilliant white diamond. The pricing of a Salt and Pepper Diamond it is not graded on the same scale as a certified GIA diamond; rather, it is priced on its translucency.
Most of the time, Salt and Pepper Diamonds are going to be rose cut- flat on the back with all of the faceting on top of the diamond. With a lower profile and more shallow diamond, this allows you to see the Salt and Pepper Diamonds patterning much easier. Additionally, the larger the surface area is, the easer it is to see the beauty within the diamond.
Occasionally, you can get a Salt and Pepper Diamond in a full cut diamond (a brilliant cut) you just don't see these as often as a rose cut.
