At a time when clear and colorless diamonds have become the standard option to accompany a successful proposal, alternative engagement rings take on a new and divergent appeal. Many women have grown bored of the perfection of flawless diamonds, as well as the associated price tags. Meanwhile, jewellers like Arsaeus Designs are offering custom-cut stones with all of the character of the earth that they came from.

Salt and pepper diamonds are inherently flawed with a mix of white and black inclusions, producing great visual intrigue even before they receive their elegant cuts. Carbon deposits within a more deeply blackened stone are complemented by an edgy seven-sided cut of the Hepta ring, while a more subtly patterned stone in the Freya ring lends well to a softer rose cut. These two diamond rings have been newly created an incorporated into Arsaeus Designs' collection, yet the Toronto-based goldsmith is capable of further customizing gold or silver bands for a truly unique and alternative engagement ring.
