ABOUT POLKI DIAMONDS: Polki diamonds are one of the oldest forms of cut diamonds, originating in India long before Western cutting methods were seen there. They often retain their original rough form and have an unfaceted, polished surface. Although they have remained in use in traditional Indian jewelry designs - mainly fashioned for wedding pieces - other designers have begun to incorporate these classic gems into their pieces. The appeal, according to another London-based designer Sally Agarwal, “is that they generally are cut to follow the original rough stone so no two are alike and they impart a distinctiveness that makes each piece unique.” Another reason she is drawn to these diamonds, she states, is “They are very flattering to the wearer because the light they give off is much softer compared to the sparkle of modern cuts."
