Our Best Picks for Men's Black Diamond Jewelry
Bold, mysterious and eye-catching, black diamonds glitter with depthless beauty. These days, the dark gemstones have become a trendy choice for men who want uniquely striking jewelry pieces that reflect their personalities. Here are some of our top picks for men's black diamond jewelry, along with some insight into what makes black diamonds so special.
What Makes Black Diamonds So Unique?
Black diamonds are authentic diamonds that get their rich color from large quantities of minuscule mineral inclusions such as graphite, pyrite or hematite. It’s these rich concentrations of tiny internal features that give the black diamond such a dense, dark appearance.
Now commonly referred to as "fancy blacks," these alluring gemstones have always had a fascinating status in historical lore. Take for example the famous Eye of Brahman, an enormous 60-plus carat Black Orloff diamond. Reminiscent of a Harrison Ford Indiana Jones movie, the gemstone was stolen from the eye of the statue of the sacred Hindu God Brahma in the Indian subcontinent. In turn, it was thought to be imbued with dark supernatural powers.
Renowned for their compelling mystery and lore, black diamonds have become popular in modern men’s jewelry, thanks to their deep, bold color and formidable style.
