      Those backed table cut diamonds seem to have some soul left in them. Not sure there are lots of followers of this taste, but every now the look makes news: have you seen THIS? The thought that those stones are in their natural shape (perhaps polished a bit? or maybe not...) is a pleasant one. Otherwise, I like diamonds as a precious stone among others - the more color, the better

      I would imagine that the Indian necklace uses similar flat rough foil backed in the traditional style. I might be the only one to think that those work better with pearls then the blinghy version... but I am biased to begin with anyway.


      Thanks for the moths! Would have never imagined pearls set that way... Awesome, methinks And there are even more interesting way with pearls where they come from!

        Thanks for the second link. Believe it or not, I was just looking for some dodecahedron carbon-spotted rough diamonds because my jeweller exploded a couple with the heat from her torch while making something for me. I like the rough stuff a lot better than the blingy perfect cut. I rarely use it though because of the mass destruction diamond mining causes to the environment. Even many famous jewellers who previously refused to work with diamond substitutes for commisioned work, now oblige without batting an eyelash.

        I'm seeing a lot of brushed gold with pearls lately. I like the look very much.
