At Gemvara, we believe that the jewelry you wear should be one of a kind, like you. That's why we make each piece to order, one at a time, just the way you want it. Choose citrine and yellow gold or black onyx and palladium: it's your choice. Mix and match gems and precious metals for a look that's exactly you. It's jewelry for all life's occasions, from a wedding or birthday to your own personal milestones and celebrations. Gemvara uses only the highest quality materials to craft your jewelry design with meticulous attention to detail. Our precious metals are recycled or responsibly mined. Our wide selection of jewelry by Martha Gomez Gutierrez, David West, Jessica Behzad, and other talented designers means you can find jewelry that's exactly your style. You can also shop by style, choosing our Delicate, Twists & Curves, or Casual & Fun Collections. Gemvara's fine quality jewelry is designed to be passed down for generations to come, crafted by hand in the United States.
Black diamonds are real diamonds: the black color is caused by graphite inclusions or, more commonly, enhancement by a safe form of irradiation and heat.
Gemvara offers enhanced black diamonds because they have better color and fewer inclusions, making them as durable as colorless diamonds.
Color should be even: black diamonds that owe their color to natural inclusions can have patchy color.
Because their inner landscape is turbulent, it is not unusal for black diamonds to have minor surface inclusions and polishing lines.
Black diamonds generally weigh a bit more than colorless diamonds: a one-carat black diamond will be smaller than a one-carat colorless diamond.
Unlike other diamond colors, black diamonds don't sparkle but they do have a highly reflective adamantine lustre.
Black diamond is an appropriate engagement ring choice for women who don't follow the crowd. Carrie Bradshaw receives a black diamond engagement ring in Sex and the City 2.
"Nevada Black Diamond" and "Alaska Black Diamond" aren't black diamond at all: these are advertising terms for obsidian volcanic glass and hematite.
