GET IN TOUCH WITH A BESPOKE DESIGNER
When choosing an engagement ring the obvious choices seem to begin with a vast array of diamonds. Dazzling, sparkling and brilliantly cut gems that have historically been every bride’s first choice. However, you might want to consider the ‘other’ member of the diamond family, the black diamond. These intriguing and strangely alluring black engagement rings are in a class of their own and are guaranteed to turn heads.Read More...
Making a statement?
Our designers continually see that no other diamond to evokes such a passionate response from people more than a black diamond. You either love it or hate it. But one thing is for sure, out of all the diamonds and gemstones available, very few become more of a statement piece than a black diamond. So, who in the world can pull this off? What type of woman can successfully wear such a dramatic piece of jewellery? And honestly, who is the man behind this exotic rock’s presentation?
Who is the woman?
The woman who commands such a rare beauty would be sophisticated, mysterious, alluring and so seductively captivating that she would exude an aura of endearing charm. She would be the inspiration for songs such as Chris De Burgh’s ‘Lady in Red’ or ‘Who’s That Lady’ from the Isley Brothers. Her understated, yet glamorous confidence would make a black diamond engagement ring feel right at home on her elegant hand.
Who is the man?
But who is this man? When I was imagining who would propose with such a ring, the first, and obvious name that came to mind was 007. James Bond himself would surely offer a stunningly distinctive black engagement ring to his chosen lady. His debonair personality would ooze confidence and charm making his non-conventional quirks all the more endearing and romantic. No other gemstone, except an exquisite black diamond, would accurately symbolize his love.
What is it?
Our designers showed me stunning samples of black engagements rings with large black diamond centrepieces surrounded by traditional white diamonds and the effect was breath-taking. These are the most expensive gemstones around due to the mystery surrounding their origins and rarity. The source of black diamonds is the subject of scientific speculation only and not fact. Black diamonds, known as Carbonide, are structurally unlike anything modern science can explain. Theories that suggest that the stones are meteorite fragments that were formed during a supernova 3.8billion years ago are actually fairly plausible.
Like it or love it?
So, like it or love, a black engagement ring would certainly be an unforgettable statement piece. The gem has all the shine and sparkle of a traditional diamond but in a style unto its own, commanding a certain respect with its startling yet understated and mysterious beauty.
