Black diamonds are a hot trend in jewellery. There’s something sexy and sultry about them that makes them irresistible. As soon as you even hear that such a gemstone exists, you want one.
Black diamonds are, chemically-speaking, very similar to white diamonds. Their black colour comes from amorphous graphite and carbon that laces their internal structure. Once polished and scrubbed, black diamonds make for striking jewellery.
Are black diamonds the next big thing? We certainly think so. Please take a look at these 10 pieces of jewellery available on our store featuring the celebrated gemstone.
