Colorless white diamonds get all the press as they are the primary stone in most fine jewelry. However, exotic black diamonds are the new choice for women with an appreciation for cutting-edge designs. Black diamond jewelers offer extensive collections of engagement and fashion rings that feature the dark stones. In addition to their striking beauty, the rings are stylish and unique. Designers like Barkev’s showcase these unique modern styles in their collection.
Fancy colored diamonds have been used for centuries to create highly original jewelry. Black diamonds gained favor with European royals and golden age Hollywood stars when they wanted statement pieces that were unlike anything else. The stones were used to as the center piece of a ring, pendant or earrings, or to offset colorless diamonds.
In the present-day, black diamonds are experiencing a renaissance due to their unique appearance and versatility. Black diamond jewelry adds a touch of elegance to casual attire and provides a stunning complement to a cocktail dress. The stones exude a strength and power that accents the femininity of fine jewelry.
Engagement rings with black center diamonds are distinctive pieces that illustrate the love you have for your significant other. Black diamonds symbolize authority and strength, so they provide the perfect representation of your bride’s powerful aura and the infinite, unbreakable bond you share.
The stones look beautiful in a range of diamond cuts and are striking when mounted on platinum and white or yellow gold precious metals. The black center stone absorbs light, so it looks strong and beautiful when mounted alone in a solitaire setting.
Three-stone and diamond halos can be used to emphasize a black diamond’s luster. Three-stone rings with a center black diamond flanked by smaller black stones on each side are classically refined. Black diamonds can also have colorless side stones, which makes each diamond appear more prominent. The alternating colors of the stone will highlight the black diamond, while the outside stones add a kiss of sparkle.
Black diamonds put an interesting twist on the diamond halo ring. Encircle the black diamond center stone with a string of colorless micro-pave diamonds to create a mixed-color design. For more standard fare, surround the black diamond center stone with small black diamonds. This will make the center stone appear a half-carat larger.

Since fashion rings have wider design flexibility, the beauty of a black diamond can be displayed in its all of its illustrious glory. Design options such as a white gold ring encrusted with a bed of micro-pave black diamonds on the top, or a flower-shaped ring affixed with black diamonds, are distinct pieces that will stand out on her finger.
