The Japanese in fact carry this same philosophy over to material objects. When a piece of pottery is damaged, it is not deemed worthless and discarded, but it is seen as reparable and even more valuable once repaired.
The art of Kintsugi (金継ぎ, "golden joinery") / Kintsukuroi (金繕い, "golden repair") involves mending the areas of breakage with a lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold (even silver or platinum) instead of concealing the damage discreetly. The golden wound becomes a signifier of the object's history - impossible to replicate as nothing shatters the same way twice.
Diamond, much like pottery, is even more unique when flawed. A perfect diamond is not discernible from another perfect diamond, but inclusions and flaws cannot be replicated. Here at Black Betty we are big believers in our flaws being our strength - that is why all of our diamonds are kept as close to their natural state as possible. They are still professionally cut and polished, but inclusions that do not affect structural integrity are welcomed with open arms!
Our Polki Diamond collections use diamonds that are cut with fewer facets than the modern diamond’s cut - enhancing the natural elements and colour of the stone. Raw and virtually uncut, the Polki diamonds have been used for centuries in India and retain their market value internationally making them phenomenal investments.
