Black diamond engagement rings are one of the rarest pieces of jewelry and are considered more expensive than any other diamond colors by far. The black diamond got its name because of its one-of-a-kind dark color. Usually, these diamonds are found in the Central African Republic and in Brazil, and are known to be the oldest diamonds in the world, as they are believed to be more than three billion years old.
If you are pining to get a black diamond engagement ring, then you have to be financially ready because they may just be as expensive as the other diamond colors. While the white diamonds have been the popular center stone for engagement rings, the black diamonds are also great especially for the people who are fashion-conscious. As they say, there is nothing classier than the color black. This diamond color will be perfect to pair with any color of outfit, plus it can have a casual look, when you wear it on a daily basis, and it can have a change in the look as well, as it can easily look great as a compliment to a formal dress. This is perfect if you want to wear it for special occasions.
The color black is usually associated with death, grief and darkness. Black diamond engagement rings however signify authority, power, strength and passion. This symbolism makes it a perfect gift especially when you are about to propose. The black diamond does not exactly have a black color; it only has a dark hue which is caused by sulfide deposits in the stones. This gives the diamond a grayish, black color.
The black diamond engagement rings are perfect for women of power, and for those women who have confidence. What’s even better about the black diamond is its perfect for both genders, so it is practically a perfect gemstone for engagement rings for both men and women.

Black diamonds are opaque, meaning they don’t glitter a lot so meaning you can either go for a bezel or a prong setting without experiencing any problem with how the black diamond shines. However, black diamond rings are perfect if you go for platinum, palladium or white gold metals, just so you can add on to the contrasting colors of the ring.
