Rough Diamond Bead Meaning and Symbolism
The rough diamond bead is simply a diamond in its natural form, before it is cut. I like to think of it as being in its essence- like when we are born, before we alter ourselves, and take on the facade of who we think we need to be. It is authentic and pure. 

When we love someone truly and deeply, it is the authentic part of each other that we love, that opens our hearts. True love sees and embraces our authentic selves, our pure hearts, our essence. So when I include the rough diamond bead in a piece, this is what I am conveying.

Poem Included in the Box

Love is not a thing to understand.
Love is not a thing to feel.
Love is not a thing to give and receive.
Love is a thing only to become
And eternally be.
— Sri Chinmoy

Genuinely Handmade
The Authentic Love necklace is classic and timeless. A rectangular tab featuring your handwriting preserved in sterling silver or 14k gold, and a 1.5 carat rough diamond bead hang from a round cable chain. The pendant is modeled in wax by hand, then cast in our studio using the anciet art of the lost wax casting process. We oxidize the necklace to give it an aged patina, create depth in the design, and bring out the handwriting. Finally, we polish it by hand resulting in a rich satin sheen.

The organic nature that lost wax casting can produce is what we are after; evidence that our pieces originate in our heads and hearts, and have been made by our own hands. Our aim is to avoid the sterile, machine made look, and instead infuse warmth and genuineness into our creations.
