Legendary Black Diamonds

By: Jeffrey M. Bertman Graduate Gemologist Fans of the vampire-based Twilight fantasy romance films are probably already familiar with the black diamond-and-platinum jewelry associated with the genre. Medium-to-large cocktail rings, stacked bracelets, and delicate cuffs embedded with black diamonds are the preferred jeweled accessories among the movies’ stars and devotees. Carbonado, which is commonly referred to as “Black Diamond,” is both mysterious and alluring. To begin with, nearly all black diamonds are found in the Central African Republic and Brazil, and time-dating analysis shows that the minerals formed about 3.8 billion years ago. These combined factors have led to the theory that they have their origins in an exploding supernova that formed large asteroids, one of which fell to earth. Otherworldly, indeed! We believe one of the most important aspects of our service to you is our knowledge of diamonds—their colors, unique characteristics, value, what makes them sparkle, and how to help you choose the highest quality diamond for your investment.
