If you asked a room full of people to draw a diamond, chances are the results would be incredibly similar.

Most people know them as the transparent, cone-shaped and symmetrical stones we see in jewellery store windows around the world. However, few people realise just how different diamonds look when they’re first plucked from the earth.

Rough or raw diamonds are stones that haven’t been cut or polished. To some people, they’re dull and misshapen. To others (us included), they’re absolutely stunning. Here are 8 raw or rough diamond rings crafted by jewellers around the world.

 

1. Brady Cowles

 
 
 

Brady Cowles' Humble Earth Creations Etsy Store is a treasure trove of nature-inspired raw diamond rings. As you can see on his Instagram, Brady has a knack for incorporating earthy forms like tree branches into his designs. This sterling silver example supports the raw diamond perfectly to create an elegant and unique piece.

 

 

2. Mis Mundos Jewelry

 

Another example of a woodland-inspired raw diamond creation, this delicate piece by Mis Mundos Jewelry captures the beauty in rough and ragged edges. The Mis Mundos Etsy store is brimming with sensational raw diamond rings and coloured gems like sapphires and turquoise. 

 

3. Tamara Gomez Jewellery

 

This beautiful pair by Tamara Gomez demonstrates how rough stones also work exceptionally with gold ring metals. The bezel-style settings accentuate the irregular shapes of the stones and give the rings a rustic charm.

 

4. Alison Titus Jewelry

 

Alison Titus is a master of matching raw stones with slender settings; letting the rough beauty of the diamond shine through. Visit her website to see more of her unique pieces.

 

5. The Raw Stone

 

As the name suggests, The Raw Stone specialise in rough diamond creations, like the octahedral piece above. The contrast between a polished ring band and raw stone makes for a striking appearance.

 

6. The Raw Stone (2)

 

Too beautiful not to share, this Raw Stone piece shows how a channel set pavé ring band can support a raw centre stone.

 

7. Anouk Jewelry

 

Raw diamonds don't only work well with delicate prong settings. This bright piece by Anouk Jewelry shows how a halo-style setting can complement a raw centre stone.

 

8. Anouk Jewelry (2)

 

Another masterpiece by Anouk Jewelry, this striking rosecut diamond marries perfectly with a beautiful bezel.
