About Black Diamond Rings

Buying Guide

When you are shopping for black diamond rings, you need to forget everything you learned about shopping for colorless diamonds. Black diamonds are real diamonds but they don't sparkle. They have an inky dark color that is essentially opaque. So the 4Cs don't really apply.

The color of black diamond is caused by graphite inclusions or, more commonly, enhancement by a safe form of irradiation and heat. Gemvara offers enhanced black diamond rings because enhanced black diamonds have better color and fewer inclusions, making them as durable as colorless diamonds.

When judging a black diamond, look for even color but remember that black diamonds that owe their color to natural inclusions can have patchy color. Because their inner landscape is turbulent, it is not unusual 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.

Because all Gemvara jewelry is made to order, we can hand-select fine-quality black diamond to perfectly suit your ring. Gemvara is the world's leading source for black diamond rings with unrivalled selection of this unusual gem: we sell more black diamonds than colorless ones.

What does wearing a black diamond ring mean in the language of gems? A black diamond ring says you are not like anyone else. Carrie Bradshaw received a black diamond engagement ring in Sex and the City 2, accelerating the trend for black diamond engagement rings which continues today. Carmen Electra also has a black diamond engagement ring. The desire for black diamond rings dates back to the golden days of Hollywood: Carole Lombard received a princess-cut black diamond ring from Clark Gable.

Black diamond rings are most often crafted in white gold or platinum, although black diamond in yellow or rose gold is even more unusual for those who like to forge their own path. Silver is also an option if budget is a concern.

Although black diamond is a very hard gem, black diamond rings shouldn't be worn when working with your hands or exercising vigorously as inclusions can make your gem more vulnerable to damage from blows. Clean black diamond rings with mild dish soap: use a soft brush behind the gems where dust can collect.

Gemvara's fine quality black diamond rings are designed to be passed down for generations to come, crafted by hand in the United States.

Jewelry Care

With a little care, your fine jewelry will keep its good looks forever. The best way to clean your jewelry is by soaking it in a bowl of warm water with a few drops of ordinary dish detergent. If needed, use a soft brush where dust and soap can collect. Then just rinse and pat dry with a soft cloth.

You won't have to clean your jewelry as often if you put it on after applying hairspray, perfume, and cosmetics. Be sure to remove your jewelry before strenuous activities like sports. Keep jewelry away from chlorine and other household chemicals. Always make sure it is dry and clean by wiping with a cloth before putting it away.

To protect the beauty of your jewelry, don't keep it in a tangle in a jewelry box. Remember, gems can scratch metal or each other. When you travel, make sure your jewelry pieces don't rub against each other in your bag. Store each piece separately or wrap each one in tissue paper or a soft cloth.
