Black Diamond Wedding Ring?

24 posts in this topic

What do you think of a black diamond for a wedding ring? I like having something different and I have always loved marcasites but didn't know if if black for a wedding set would be appropriate.I googled it and found an article on www.queendiamondrings.com and just wondered what others thought about it. My husband is getting me a new wedding set for our twentieth anniversary so does anyone have any advise? :-)

Hello!  It's really personal preference and what you like the most!  Lately, I have noticed a lot of black diamond rings, black diamond engagement rings selling.  It seems that they are becoming more and more popular for sure!  Good luck and congrats on your 20th anniversary!

The negative connotation that Americans have for things black is really a rather recent thing and is, of course, completely arbitrary   There's tons of super cool antique jewelry with black stones and if you like the look, by all means go for it.  It's absolutely false that diamonds are 'supposed' to be white.

One of my friend used this on his engagement. They bought a couple of rings which are very nice and I was very attracted towards them and want ot buy them. I am not having any black diamond jewellery in my colleciton searching  for the best place for buying this jewellery.

Black diamonds are undoubtedly one of the best looking diamonds available..They shine and sparkle, just like a clear diamond! If you are looking for a beautiful ring but not looking to spend thousands of bucks, a black diamond wedding ring is the best option for you!

Personally, I think black Diamond is not good, black often let people think of some bad things, so I don't like black diamond, but if you like ,you can choose it.

Black diamonds are really rare -- in fact, some scientists believe they were formed inside a foreign star, in outer space, and arrived on earth (and only ever in Central Africa and Brazil) via asteroid when that star exploded.

 

So, having black diamonds on your 20th anniversary wedding rings would be, actually, "stellar" and quite "out of this world".  ;)

I think you are confusing black diamonds with Moissanite.

WHAT on Earth is that, Neil? A portrait of Cthulhu? :lol:

 

Got to admit, I had to google that one.

 

Not bad, although I think it's closer to this:

It's a fairly common style, with three or five stones, plus or minus halos. Most jewellers will be able to procure or make something very similar. The bigger problem is timing: with less than 2 weeks to go, you are likely to be limited to what's in stock currently...

Wow, I had never seen a black diamond, or even known they exited.  Definitely interesting.

 

How common, or rare, are they?  Are they fairly easy to find?

Black diamonds are not so rare and the reason there are more and more of them making their way to the market place is that many of the them are treated (and not necessarily disclosed).  We've been sourcing them for a while now for our Black on Black diamond earrings which are supposed to be natural blacks.  We had the option of making these substantially cheaper using treated goods but opted against it.  In general these stones are not expensive enough to warrant any kind of serious grading report, so ultimately you will have to rely on your vendors to disclose any treatment they might be aware of.

 

Black diamonds are uber full of inclusions.  Light does not dance around inside them and scintilate back at you.  The only sparkle is surrounding light being reflected off the polished facets.  Pretty, yes, but not comparable to white stones.

 

I hope this helps.

Yes, I saw some pictures.  I think I know what you mean Gerald.  Still interesting as an additional piece, not the main engagement ring, at least in my case.  I definitely see the appeal.  I think it's something I could discuss with my gf.  But would have to wait until after I give her the engagement ring... wouldn't want her asking what I was looking at diamonds for.

 

But to the OP, if you are still watching, wear what you like ;).

Well can't say about that. I guess they are easily available but I personally don't like them. I like white diamonds :)

Well, you could get some beautiful and elegant engagement rings from http://www.darasdiamonds.com/. My hubby got this one from me and that too it was inexpensive. You could show your girlfriend and then you both could select together.

Hi 

 

First Congratulations!

 

I guess you have a great choice, a black diamond is unusual for a wedding ring. And black now symbolizes elegance. A bride should always be standout on her wedding day, not just with her wedding gown but with the ring that she will wear forever, that ring is the symbol of the never ending love for one another.

 

Best wishes!

 

Anthony

I know this is an old thread but maybe I can help the next person. I have been writing about engagement rings for some time and have a page on Black Diaomond Engagement Rings here...

Nothing to buy, just information on your favorite engagement rings. I'm adding more as I find time to research.
