These Black Diamond Jewels Are Magic and Mystery


There’s just something about a black diamond.

The mysterious counterpart to the more popular sparkling white, a black diamond absorbs light, like the seemingly bottomless depths of the ocean. If one were to believe in fairy tales—or curses—they might believe in the sinister tales a black diamond may tell; some even believe black diamonds are from outer space (space diamonds are, in fact, a real thing).

Where the average consumer is concerned, though, black diamonds might simply be a cool, more dramatic version of the white or fancy color stones, and examples like the Sex and the City black diamond engagement ring point to the variation as a chic, high fashion alternative for brides-to-be.

Goth “vampire weddings” are still having a moment (though they’re not as zeitgeisty as in 2022), for which black diamonds are perfectly on-theme.

In fashion jewelry, the black provides a sleek and elegant look to bracelets, pendants, and earrings, and you can often find them in sterling silver—an excellent price point option for shoppers seeking something new.
