Recently, I’ve discovered salt & pepper diamonds and have 100% fallen in love with them.
I would have one as an engagement ring if I wasn’t already engaged.
Second best thing, imo, is to have a wedding band of salt & pepper.
This has been somewhat hard to find. I know diamonds with heavy inclusions are not super durable/stable, but, sometimes you gotta live on the edge.
This is the closest thing I’ve found:
I’m not a fan of a full eternity band though. I’d like the option to resize my ring and it’s not exactly salt and pepper.
My other option appers to be to custom make the ring–which there is plenty of pretty diamonds, but I don’t even know where to start with that?
I’ve found some different loose stones on Ebay and Etsy.
Does anyone know where to/how to find a style like this?
How do you even begin the process of a custom piece? Who do you guys recommend? What’s the ball park cost on a half eternity setting with 14k white gold gold? (I’m thinking maybe 1ct so the diamonds–looking at these cheapies would cost around 100$-300$ )
Also if anyone has any salt & pepper or inclusions they’d like to show off please do. 🙂

We custom designed our bands with a local jeweller.
Lots of bees use David Klass.
Sorry I don’t have a ballpark on price or any other info for salt and pepper diamonds but I love that band you posted!

The picture you posted is lab grown diamonds, if that matters to you.
I’m sure you’ve looked, but I found these on etsy:

If I were you I’d buy my own stones and take them to a custom jeweler, that way you’re getting exactly what you want!

It doesn’t bother me.
I somehow missed those ones in my searches. It’s getting close to what I want.

Instagram! Search by hashtag – greydiamond and other similar tags. You’ll find what you are looking for.

Marrow Fine could customize a salt and pepper beauty for you. Not sure what your budget is but it may be worth looking into. They do beautiful work!

APancakePrincess : I would have one custom designed by digby & iona:
I know they can make any of their bands with salt and pepper stones if you request it.
