The Allure of Black Diamonds


 

We associate diamonds with elegance, shine, and purity, because of its clear color. In the past decade, we have seen the rise of colored diamonds, be it blue, pink, or canary yellow, thanks to celebrities like Heidi Klum and Jennifer Lopez. Now, another tone of diamond has entered the fashion arena with a bang, in a darker, more seductive way.

What are black diamonds?

There are two types of black diamonds available: one that springs out naturally (the most valuable type) and one that gets its shade from heating treatments applied to the gem. The stone turns black due to the presence of graphite in the crystalline structure of the diamond during its formation.The natural type is valued around $3.000 per carat, while the treated diamond tends to cost around $300. Black diamonds can be found in Central Africa and Brazil.

Black diamonds are the perfect accessory to embellish fall’s beauty trends. Imagine yourself wearing a lustrous lace top or satin dress with one of these stunning pieces.
