Black engagement rings are striking, bold, and completely unusual. Black diamonds do not sparkle but they are still real diamonds. Black diamonds have an inky dark colour that is essentially opaque, making the 4Cs of diamond grading less applicable. The colour of black diamond is caused by graphite inclusions or, more commonly, enhancement by a safe form of irradiation and heat.
In the language of gems, wearing a black diamond ring means you are not like anyone else. This is a bold choice.

Black diamond engagement rings look wonderful when set in prong, pave or channel setting. Black diamond rings are most often crafted in white gold or platinum, although black diamond in yellow or rose gold are even more unusual for those who like to forge their own path. Black diamonds also look lovely when surrounded by other diamonds in the setting, including white or coloured diamonds. The wonderful contrast between the black diamond and the little, reflective white diamonds creates a unique element of charm and sexy sparkle.
