Celebrating Black Diamonds 

It’s unfortunate that black diamonds are often overshadowed by their fairer sister, the white diamond. Undoubtedly, the white diamond is stunning, but the black diamond, I think, is equally intriguing. Its dark and deep infinite looking hue can be truly majestic. Even more intriguing is that some scientists believe that the origin of black diamonds is outer space and that those on Earth are from a meteor shower billions of years ago!  So with Halloween around the corner, above are a few baubles with this favorite gem of mine, the black diamond.

I’d be curious what E*H readers think—are you a fan of the black diamond or do you prefer the sparkly white diamond? Would you ever consider an engagement ring with a black diamond?
