Rough Cut Jewellery
This collection features specially “rough cut” gemstones. This does not mean that the gemstone has not been cut. The gemstones will have an organic look as if they have been found that way or are naturally occurring. This is a created look.

Firstly, we select good quality gemstone raw material paying special attention to the colour and beauty of the inclusions. Our cutter first “cleaves” the raw material into thin sheets. Next, they examine the quality of the surface that has been created to check that it is attractive. The cutter then cuts shape that we require for the necklace, ring, pendant, earrings or bracelet from this sheet. After this they polish the sides and back. This ensures that the gemstone does not feel rough on the skin and sits neatly in the metalwork setting. Usually the front surface does not need any further cutting just a lot of care in the making to avoid damaging it. With translucent stones such as rough diamonds, the rough surface is slightly smoothed off or randomly faceted to enhance its natural features.

Using these specially cut gemstones gives our designs a unique contemporary feel. We set them in hammered matt finish silver, platinum or gold to enhance their found look.

Here you will find an array of stunning, unique rough cut gemstones. For example,  rubies, emeralds, lapis lazuli, sapphire, labradorite and amethyst rings, necklaces, pendants, cufflinks and bracelets. We also have a collection of 2000 year old nimroz glass that has been rough cut. Pop into our Ditchling workshops and gallery to browse more of our rough cut jewellery collections.
