These hoop earrings have little organic drops, made from recycled 9 ct gold, which hug raw diamonds measuring around 0.215 – 0.22 ct. The pair will not be identical due to the individual nature of each diamond, we feel this gives the earrings a special charm. The total length of the earring is 1.7cm
Deborah has collaborated with Cornwall’s Ocean Diamonds, specialists in sustainably sourced marine diamonds, to create this collection of raw diamond jewellery. These diamonds started their journey to the sea billions of years ago, carried by the rivers and eventually settling on the seabed off the coasts of Namibia and South Africa, where they are collected by responsible diamond divers.
"I was completely drawn to these beautifully raw diamonds, with all their natural beauty, this awe-inspiring story of nature. There has been no alteration by human hands, no cutting or polishing: only the most resilient diamonds survive, their brilliant shine and faceted surface has been created entirely by their incredible journey to the sea. The sea has always had a huge influence on my designs, and I hope these wonderful ocean diamonds will connect the wearer to the powerfully healing effect of the sea" DB.
The designs are inspired by where the diamonds were found on the sea bed, nestling in the crevices; The raw ocean diamond is hugged by an organic setting made from recycled 9-carat gold, created by the lost wax casting method. Each piece will vary slightly due to the individual shape of the raw diamond. Each diamond comes with a certificate of authenticity.
Each piece of Ocean diamond jewellery will be made specially for you, so please allow 4 - 5 weeks before delivery.
For every purchase of Ocean Diamonds made, we will be donating to PARLEY: dedicated to addressing major threats towards our oceans, the most important ecosystem of our planet. #fortheoceans
