Learn about our Tunstall Finish

The 'tunstall' finish was invented by our chief goldsmith Richard Tunstall as an alternative to the pin end finish. Although the pin end finish is a fairly durable finish, Richard felt that it would be possible to create a finish that was even more durable.

Now adopted by other companies, this finish is also known as a 'crushed diamond' or 'diamond dust' finish and is applied to the surface of a ring in much the same way as a pin end finish - ie by distressing the surface of the ring by hand.

This finish is very marked and works best on large flat areas of metal. The finish wouldn't be appropriate, for example, for a delicate engagement ring.
