Raw diamonds are beautiful because they are so unexpected. There is no difference between a raw diamond and a polished one – except the polished stone has been finished and cut. The carats and clarity are the same – and the price will reflect that.
We love raw diamonds in earrings. They are the anti-sparkle, but some how still bring the same beautiful jewelry-ness to your face.
