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.
Below are some of the latest black diamond styles to suit myriad tastes.
