Second chance gems are stones that may have been overlooked because they're flawed in some way.
Common imperfections can be inclusions such as growth lines, bubbles, inclusions and minor cleaves. There are also other natural occurrences such as silt and colour banding that are easily detectable to the naked eye.
These stones may not have turned out as expected on the cutting table but are still stable and suitable for jewellery.
To us their imperfections are what give them character and set them apart from other stones on the market. So we are giving them a second chance and saving them from the scrap heap whilst simultaneously providing the opportunity to create some truly unique jewellery! As designers we love to work with the stones to enhance their unique characteristics.
