I’ve been lucky enough to design some amazing bespoke engagement rings over the last few years, and when someone comes to me because they want something different I always show them Black and Salt & Pepper Diamonds. Diamonds are magical and magnificent, rare, pure and strong - No wonder they are a staple of many special pieces of jewellery, but, if you’re a dark heart like me, you’ll want yours in black.

Just as tough as colourless diamonds, but even rarer, black diamonds are only found in Brazil and central africa, thought to be the result of an asteroid that hit the earth many moons ago. All the diamonds I use are fully traceable from a trusted supplier and originate from an award-winning mine in Botswana with no question of exploitation of labour.
