Materials and Ethos

Jewelry Materials and Terminology

Metals

Metal is the foundation of our jewelry. Most of what we use starts out as wire, tubing, sheet metal, chain or cast components and is hand fabricated in our Detroit studio. Our silver and gold are primarily recycled material. We maintain relationships with refineries, casters, miners, stone cutters and companies that run transparent supply chains as much as possible.

Lab Grown Diamonds

Diamonds created in a controlled lab setting, mimicking the natural process. They share identical properties with natural diamonds but are synthesized using carbon, high pressure and temperature. Our lab diamonds are all created in the US.

Salt and Pepper Diamonds

Naturally occurring diamonds that embrace the unique characteristics that come from inclusions and carbon. The texture in the stones can resemble grains of salt and pepper. These stones can be transparent or opaque. Every diamond is unique.

Recycled Diamonds

Naturally occurring diamonds, previously set in jewelry then removed, and re-introduced into the supply chain for resale. Using recycled diamonds reduces the jewelry industry’s reliance on environmentally damaging mining practices.

Natural Diamonds

Naturally occurring diamonds, VS quality and F color or better unless specified. These diamonds are sourced from reputable suppliers and supply chains.

Heirloom Diamonds

Heirloom diamonds are diamonds that have been passed down through generations within a family. Because these diamonds often carry stories and memories of the previous generations, we work with clients to incorporate them into custom projects.

Colored Diamonds

Natural diamonds that have undergone treatments to alter their color. These treatments are typically applied to diamonds to create unique and vibrant colors. They are perfect for pavé when softer gemstones would not be suitable.

Common terms:

  • Brilliant: Today, diamonds are cut with the purpose of bringing out brilliance and luster from a diamond. This cut is identified by the placement of numerous facets (flat surfaces) on a diamond causing light to reflect, refract and disperse optimally. The Round Brilliant diamond shape has 57 facets comprising 33 facets on the crown and 25 on the pavilion.

*Note: Not all round diamonds are brilliant cuts. Other shapes can be brilliant cut like a pear brilliant cut diamond.

  • Rose Cut: Type of diamond cut that originated in the 16th century. It is named for its resemblance to the petals of a rose, with a flat bottom and a domed top that tapers to a point.
  • Portrait Cut: Has a flat, elongated shape, and typically sits on a large table. It's a shallow and step-cut design that has a low profile. A diamond with a portrait cut is thin and delicate, resembling a flat piece of glass.
