No two diamonds alike. Echunga is an exclusive collection of jewellery inspired by the mystery and folklore of the rare Echunga diamonds.
The Echunga Jupiter Creek diamond dress ring features three natural coloured diamonds with white diamonds. We describe the colours of these gems as Orange, Lime and Blueberry flavours.
Every coloured diamond in the Echunga collection is unique. Working with these exquisite natural gems has led to the creation of a suite of one-of-a-kind jewellery.

We use flavours as a helpful way to describe the colours of these very special diamonds.

The Echunga collection is inspired by the fabulous local mystery of the rare Echunga diamonds. Discovered at Echunga in the picturesque Adelaide Hills during the gold rush of the late 1800s, the true source of the original diamonds remains unknown to this day. Gerard appraised the original diamonds 1994 for the South Australian Museum, which sparked the idea for this unique collection. The origin of the Echunga diamonds remains a mystery, as there are no known Kimberlite pipes (which are responsible for the formation of mined diamonds) in the area where they were found.
This ring is named for the rich Jupiter Creek gold field in Echunga. At the height of the gold rush (1868 – 1907) up to 1,500 diggers worked in this field. The region has a stunning array of wildflowers during the Spring months which has inspired the floral elements in the setting of this ring.
