But, there are other options for everything from engagement rings to cocktail rings and pendants, with colored stones like the Front Jewelers gemstone engagement ring (which made a huge leap into the hearts of many jewelry collectors recently). And, among those colored stones is the dramatic, and highly unexpected, black diamond.
Why We Love the DiamondDiamonds have been mined and used for a variety of uses for more than three thousand years. The word itself comes from the Greek word "adamas," which means unconquerable. The diamond is said to be one of the hardest materials in the world. The black diamond is actually an enhanced diamond and if you look very closely, you will see that most, if not all, are actually a very deep green color rather than a true black. There are some naturally occurring black diamonds but those are very rare, indeed.
Black Diamond Pieces and What To Wear Them With
Another, very famous black diamond became part of the plot line of the movie, Sex and the City 2. When Carrie Bradshaw was given her engagement ring, it was a stunning, five carat black diamond. But rings are not the only option for black diamonds. A gorgeous pendant was created in the design of a single die. The large piece, meant to be worn by a man, features white diamonds with all of the numbers represented by black diamonds. It would be a perfect piece for all of the high rollers in your life.
Choosing a Black Diamond Piece
There are some people who might be intimidated by a black diamond, thinking that they are just too dramatic or even too Gothic in nature. But, there are many pieces that are simple and elegant, without being too much. If you don't want a ring, a pretty necklace, bracelet or even a small pin can be a perfect way to ease into wearing colored stones.
