Engagement ring with black Diamond - a gemstone classic with a difference
As is well known, diamond rings are among the classics when it comes to engagement rings and wedding bands. They are extraordinary, noble and real eye-catchers. And one particular variant is particularly shimmering: a piece of jewelry with a black diamond. An engagement ring with a black diamond will especially please women who have a penchant for extravagance and are stylish. With such a gemstone, you give your future wife a ring that not everyone has and that will definitely stand out.
The black Diamond in legends and culture
The "Black Orlov" goes down in history as probably the most famous black Diamond. According to legend, the 67 carat gemstone was used in India as the eye of an idol. There, however, it was stolen by a monk. Since then, it is said to have changed hands more frequently.
Another extremely famous black Diamond is the "Spirit of de Grisogono". Weighing 587 carats, it was found in Central Africa. It was cut in a very special way and its ring setting is reminiscent of the fruit of an oak tree.
In any case, one thing is certain: the gemstone is in demand and engagement rings with black diamonds are very precious.
An unusual stone with popular color
In nature, the black gemstones, like all other diamonds, are formed under high pressure deep inside the earth. They get their color from graphite and metal compounds. Fancy diamonds, varieties of diamonds that naturally have a different color than usual, are very rare. That one of them is black, therefore, does not happen very often. Accordingly, diamond rings with the black gemstones are expensive.
However, as they have gained popularity in recent years, there are now special techniques that can be used to process the stone. By irradiating or firing with high temperatures, the gemstones get a deep, velvety black color. Perfectly cut, a black Diamond unfolds an extraordinary sparkle and is a real eye-catcher for engagement rings of any color - no matter whether you choose white gold, yellow gold or rose gold. Or does your choice fall on an extravagant platinum ring, which looks particularly fascinating in combination with a black stone?
