Black Diamond Rings


Critics say that black diamond rings are just a fad, and it’s most likely that these gemstones will depreciate once the hype wears off. However, this doesn’t lessen the enjoyment that males are now discovering in the precious stone. Diamonds used to be a gemstone that only women appreciated. The white perfect diamond appeared to be too flashy for men. This is the reason why, in most engagements, only the women wore the ring. Today is a different matter, though.

Black diamond rings have won the hearts of many men because of the character it exudes. Compared to the white gemstone that flashes light, quite literally, the black gemstone absorbs light. The darker they are, the higher it is graded, which is the complete opposite in white diamonds which is graded higher when it reflects lesser hues of colour.

Transparent to translucent black diamonds are very rare. This is why if you’re planning to impress your husband with this gemstone, look for rings that exude this quality. You have to be prepared to spend a lot of money, though, because these stones can definitely break your budget.

The most impressive diamond rings are set in white metal, so cross out yellow gold and other reddish metals off your list when you’re planning the design. The stone looks best when set against silver, platinum, titanium and white gold rings. To bring in more contrast, you can also try setting the stone with white gemstones. White and black diamonds complement each other, and it is highly likely that when they’re next to each other, their imperfections would be overlooked because the design would play on contrast.

Just because the stone exudes a more mysterious and masculine character, though, doesn’t mean that it’s designed specifically for males. You can give your wife or your fiancé a black diamond jewel as well, as the stone’s beauty is also appreciated by women. As a matter of fact, black diamonds further gained popularity in the 90s when Carmen Electra was presented with her first giant black rock.
