What Exactly Are Black Diamonds
Natural black diamonds, also referred to as 'carbonado', are formed by our dear friend Mother Nature. They are made up of inclusions that contain high amounts of carbon and graphite, giving them a deep and rich black color.
Black diamonds are in fact real diamonds. They contain the same chemical compounds as colorless diamonds. The only difference here is that black diamonds feature a number of inclusions that give the appearance of black coloring.
Despite common misconception, inclusions do not take away from the integrity or value of the diamond, nor do they pose any risk to the stone itself. These are simply part of each stones unique characteristics, making it the perfect choice for an alternative diamond engagement ring.
