Brendan Cunningham, the founder of Salt and Pepper Diamonds, has been working full-time as a bench jeweller since 2003. His diamond rings are beautifully refined and always unique, and Cunningham specialises in pairing unusual stones and metals to produce jewellery that is classic-with-a-twist. He is particularly well-known for his tantalum rings, a metal which is valued for its rarity, durability and distinctive dark blue-grey colour.
For obvious reasons, many of Cunningham’s pieces feature salt and pepper diamonds; the inclusions that make these stones so unusual were once considered flaws, but recent interest has led to a blossoming market and they are becoming increasingly rare and valuable.
Brendan works in NSW and the ACT.
