What Are Black Diamond Engagement Rings?

Black diamond engagement rings are engagement rings that feature black diamonds, part of the colored diamonds family. Big was really onto something when he gifted Carrie that black diamond engagement ring in that iconic Sex and The City scene.

With more and more couples wanting engagement rings that express their individual style but still have that wow factor, this outside-the-box option is finding its way to the fingers of more and more brides-to-be.

Understanding Black Diamonds

Black diamonds were first discovered in 1840 in Brazil, and are almost exclusively found there, as well as in central Africa. Natural black diamonds are extremely rare, with most on the market today being lab grown or enhanced. This is when natural, white diamonds are put under heat and pressure to result in the rich, black color.

This dark diamond has a rich history. It has been associated with wealth and power, the belief that just touching it can help save one’s marriage, and that it provides protection from evil. Others believe black diamonds symbolize a link between the spiritual and physical worlds, as well as a strong emotional connection.

Some used to believe the gem was cursed because it resembles the eyes of snakes and spiders. Today, black diamonds are not feared but beloved for their incredible style.

Why Choose a Black Diamond Engagement Ring?

An engagement ring should not only reflect the personal style of the wearer, but symbolize the love story of the couple. Black diamond engagement rings are a great choice for couples who have bold style and want a ring that projects their one-of-a-kind love.
