If your partner loves to stray away from tradition, then you should consider a black diamond engagement ring. Also known as carbonado, natural black diamonds are only found in Central Africa and Brazil. Composed of graphite, amorphous solid and diamond, natural black diamonds are usually GIA certified. If you want to buy the love of your life a bespoke engagement ring that is truly unique, here are a few reasons why you should buy a black diamond engagement ring.
People think black diamonds are extraterrestrial
Many people believe that black diamonds are extraterrestrial gems that have come from space. Now, we know that diamonds are formed in the Earth’s crust, but we love this myth! What makes this concept even better is that research has found that black diamonds do have extraterrestrial origin - they contain elements of nitrogen and hydrogen. Because of this, some scientists believe that black diamonds are the consequence of stellar supernova explosions. Alongside this, it is thought that when black diamonds first landed on earth, they were the size of asteroids, and more than a kilometer in diameter.

There are two types of Black Diamond
When it comes to choosing a black diamond for your beloved’s engagement ring, you’ll have two types of black diamond to choose from; the majority of natural black diamonds undergo irradiation in order to enhance the facets of the stone. The second is a natural, untreated black diamond. Because this stone hasn’t be irradiated, you can see the stunning inclusions - natural black untreated diamonds are incredibly rare and typically have a higher price point.
Treated Black Diamonds are cheaper
Black diamonds that have undergone treatment are less expensive than brilliant white diamonds, but they are arguably just as beautiful! Even though they are cheaper, it doesn’t mean they are worthless. However, if you’re looking to buy a black diamond as an investment piece, you should opt for a natural untreated black diamond!
