What are Salt and pepper diamonds?

Salt and pepper diamonds are a unique type of diamond characterized by their inclusion of black and white specks or "salt and pepper" spots throughout the stone. These inclusions are often composed of carbon, graphite, or hematite crystals, and they give the diamond a distinctive appearance.

Unlike traditional diamonds, which are valued for their clarity and lack of inclusions, salt and pepper diamonds embrace their unique imperfections as part of their charm. Each salt and pepper diamond is truly one-of-a-kind, with its own pattern of inclusions, making them sought after for their individuality and character.

These diamonds can range from nearly colorless with subtle specks to deeply saturated with prominent inclusions, offering a wide variety of options for those seeking something different from the traditional diamond look. Salt and pepper diamonds are increasingly popular in modern jewelry designs, particularly in alternative engagement rings and contemporary jewelry pieces.
