Are Contemporary Black Diamonds Genuine Diamonds?Mandira
Black diamonds have seen a surge of popularity over the past few years. They’ve been in the spotlight since Carrie Bradshaw of Sex in the City (Sarah Jessica Parker’s character) and Blake Lively, as well as other celebrities, have shown them off. Black diamonds are striking in their intensity and are definitely a way to set your style apart from the usual!
One question we get asked quite often is this: Are black diamonds real? Well, yes, they are! That is, they are genuine mined diamonds. But, there is one caveat. There are two ways for a diamond to achieve its black color. Natural Fancy Black Diamonds (NFBD) are mined this way. And others are white diamonds that are heat treated to turn them black.
We’re not going to kid around. NFBD cost ten times (10x) what heat-treated black diamonds cost. Therefore, the black diamonds shown on our website are heat-treated. We tend to specialize in the more affordable options. BUT if you must have NFBD, we will acquire one for you.
