History of black diamonds....know what you are buying;
Black diamonds are the rarest in the diamond family. Also called carbonado, black diamonds were created 3.5 billion years ago. Over time, they pushed their way up to the surface through volcanic eruptions about 1 million years ago. Black diamonds are considered to be "young," as clear diamonds were formed approximately 4.25 billion years ago.
Black diamonds are opaque. They are just as hard as clear diamonds, and Brazil is the major supplier of black diamonds.
Since the turn of the twenty-first century, black diamonds have become more popular in wedding jewellery, with both bride and groom choosing wedding bands with black diamonds set in them. Bride’s will also choose an engagement ring with either a black diamond main stone surrounded by white diamonds, or a white diamond solitaire with black diamond accent stones.
Black Diamonds are an opaque black colour and worth a lot more than white diamonds or yellow diamonds-- in fact they are the most expensive of all diamonds even though they actually have the same strength as any other diamond! They are the rarest of all the diamonds and are mainly found in Brazil and have a great history behind them too. They formed in the centre of the earth about 3.5 billion years ago and with volcanic eruptions they are brought to the surface.
Black diamond rings look best when placed in white gold. They look best when cut in a simple cut. The best way to display a black diamond is when it is next to or surrounded by white diamonds, color G – K, this creates a big contrast between the two, making the black diamond look more black and the white diamonds look whiter. The contrast between the two makes this diamond sell faster and adds to the value of the ring; generally the ring can sell for double its actual value when white diamonds are placed alongside it.
There are a few very famous black diamonds. The first is a black diamond that weighs 55.85 carats and was so named in the occasion of Amsterdam 's 700th anniversary. The second black diamond was found in Brazil . The black diamond of Bahia which was discovered in Brazil is equally famous. This 350 carats stone is famous for its unpolished rugged look. It was so hard it could not be polished. The last is Black Star of Africa; it is also regarded to be the largest colored-diamond in the world. It weighed 202 carat and was valued at 1.2 million US dollars. All these diamonds, of course are under lock and key with a 24 hour armed guard.
They are highly priced but worth it, once you see the beauty in these diamonds, you will not look at a canary or white diamond the same light again.
