Rock Solid

    When Diamond in the Rough introduced its rough diamond jewelry three years ago, it gave the classic stone a new image by portraying it in its organic, natural form. Today, many jewelers are experimenting with rough diamonds, but Diamond in the Rough continues to create some of the most stylish and exclusive natural diamond pieces, such as the newly unveiled 97-carat yellow diamond bracelet, shown. It took nearly one year to collect rough yellow diamonds of similar size and shape and create individual settings for each stone within the design. The new collection presents a wide variety of colored diamonds in designs that range from large rough-rock rings to delicate strands of rough diamonds that appear like softly tumbled rocks.
