A little about our beloved "RUSTIC" diamonds so perfectly imperfect. Here at JewelLUXE we embrace the imperfect highlighting their unique characteristics.

ROSE CUT (or rosette) diamonds have been adorning jewelry since the middle of the 16th century. Their brilliance radiates from triangular facets forming a pattern radiating from the apex of the stone. Usually, the top of the stone is domed and the bottom is a flat, polished surface. The total number of facets and arrangements vary.

Diamond SLICES have recently emerged into the jewelry industry around 2010. Thin slices of diamonds are cut from included diamond rough. Unique patterns formed by inclusions are showcased with this faceting style that reveals their decorative beauty. Faceting consists of a large, flat table with triangular facets on the outer edge and the bottom is flat and polished. The total facet count varies and their placement is non-standard. Thickness also varies and the thin slices are very fragile. Diamond slices are prized for their interesting inclusions.

Rustic diamonds range in color saturation and hues from white (aka clear), yellow, red, blue and all the different combinations available. Different trace elements produce colors. Often you'll find a combination of hues, saturation or patterns and they are so organic and beautiful!

Eye visible inclusions give these diamonds their inherent personalities. Semi-transparent to opaque in clarity. There are many creative terms describing their appearance. Salt & pepper refers to diamonds that have eye visible black inclusions within a light colored diamond. Icy or galaxy describes visible random internal inclusions which resemble the milky way or crushed ice. The surface sparkle is amazing and the internal brilliance depends on the transparency. While diamonds remain the hardest known substance to man, inclusions can affect their durability.

I can't say enough about my experience working with Janine to create the exact ring that I wanted. After the initial discussion of what I had in mind, Janine designed a ring that perfectly complemented my wedding band and my grandmother's sapphire band. Furthermore, when the initial design wasn't exactly what I wanted, she modified the design so that it was perfect. The end result is a lovely low-set sapphire with diamonds on either side. Janine is a thoughtful, responsive, and creative professional and I look forward to my next purchase from her.

About

J E W E L L U X E - creating beautiful jewels for all

About J a n i n e - At a very tender age I loved making jewelry. Little did I know that this was just the beginning of my journey as a creative. In 1986 I left my home, Vancouver/Canada, to pursue my dreams at the Gemological Institute of America, in California. After graduating the GIA Graduate Gemologist program, the real training began. I gathered hands on trade experience in wholesale, manufacturing and retail.

In 1993, I launched my ByDesignLA studio in Redondo Beach becoming the "go to Jeweler" for my local (some famous) clientele. After 20 years it was time to find a new location and that's when I discovered Etsy. Now I exist as J E W E L L U X E on Etsy. Being here provides me freedom to indulge my creativity and work with wonderful clients around the world. Flourishing as a creative feels just amazing! Thank you EVERYONE for your continued love and support.

Our J E W E L L U X E style is a blend of many different elements and mediums that are tweaked until perfection. We use recycled, reclaimed metals such as gold, silver, platinum and palladium. Our pieces are made with conflict free, traditional and non-traditional diamonds or gemstones. We use genuine gems and diamonds that are hand selected for their innate beauty. Featuring natural inclusions, we embrace them, showcasing their individual beauty

Hopefully our imagination shines brightly for you!

An ode to C U S T O M (Bespoke):

We love it when you send us pictures/links or sketches with your ideas. We will help you create that special piece. Some projects are more complicated requiring more patience and time.

We offer one complimentary sizing on most pieces. Some pieces are impossible to adjust but we will do our best to assist you.

Care instructions

Jewelry is not indestructible, care should always be used while wearing them. To give your ring the care it deserves, we recommend not wearing your ring while: showering, washing dishes, cleaning, sleeping, exercising, gardening, or doing any other strenuous activity that you feel may cause damage to it!

TIPS for cleaning most jewels (not opals or pearls) :

Spray some glass cleaner ("Windex" ) directly on most jewels and scrub with a soft toothbrush or lint-free cloth. Rinse under cold water, repeat until clean. Pat dry with a lint-fee cloth.

or/

Giving your jewelry a quick clean, with warm water and a few squirts of mild dishwashing liquid. Soak your ring for 5-10 minutes then brush gently with a soft toothbrush and rinse.
