Black, the new white!

My latest favorite piece of jewelry, which is subject to change at any moment, is our recently acquired 121.05 carat Black Diamond Necklace.   Yes, the diamonds are black, and yes, they look like diamonds.  This black diamond necklace really pops when it is against your skin and dresses up that little black dress or even jeans.  Plus, it has this great mac daddy white gold and diamond clasp that can be worn off to one side if you like.

Black diamonds are really cool because no one knows what they really are!   They are very rare and were only discovered in 1840 in Brazil.  They are made up of several crystals instead of just one like white diamonds.  That’s what gives it its black opaque color.  Also, they are not formed in the earth’s crust.  In fact, some scientists believe that black diamonds may have come from outer space!  Now, how cool is that?

Any woman who is adventurous, likes unusual things that no one else has and enjoys dishing out a little shock factor, would love this necklace.

All my best,
