Jewellery fashion has taken a turn towards the dramatic. Stylish, alluring, and goes with everything. The Black Diamond has become the de rigeur diamond for diamond engagement rings. Our celebrities, fashionistas and those who are famous for being famous, all know that these noir beauties are second to none when it comes to turning heads.
It all began when Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City, aka Sarah Jessica Parker showed off her black diamond ring given to her by 'Big' on their engagement. Since then the black diamond has gone from strength to strength. Carmen Electra, the UK's Cheryl Cole and many others have chosen the Black Diamond as their very special diamond. Carmen Electra chose it for her engagement ring and many others have followed.
The Black Diamond can look even more dramatic when surrounded by white diamonds. Black diamonds have a density of colour that doesn't quite scintillate, the drama of the diamond is already eye-catching, so the addition of the white diamond is the perfect back drop.
