Recently I had the opportunity to work with some of Australia's iconic Argyle diamonds. Famous for their fancy colours, notably the pink, these just happened to be in my favourite diamond colour of all, the champagne & cognac variety.
My client wanted a clear conscience when she embarked on the journey to have engagement rings made for herself and her partner. After all the initial discussions and design talk, the decision was to go with the Argyle diamonds, of course for their spectacular colour and quality, but primarily for their ethical standards when it comes to both the mining & cutting practices. In fact, the entire ethos of this particular Argyle diamond company is this:
source - ethical.traceable.responsible
Together with the ethical, Australian based, small business, & sustainability practices of a manufacturing jeweller such as myself, and you have an end product that you can truly feel good about.
Here are the results, two very striking designs that subtly compliment one another, and also compliment the personalities of each woman.
