What are black diamonds?
Large black diamonds of a good cut quality can be very valuable. However, they’ll always be more affordable than most other coloured diamonds because they sparkle much less. Instead of reflecting the light, they absorb it, but they still can be set into beautiful diamond jewellery.
Natural black diamonds are only found in a few diamond mines in Brazil and Central Africa. According to some, black diamonds are found much deeper in the Earth than other diamonds and are created between 140 and 190 kilometres below the surface. High pressure and the temperatures at those depths would give them their unique colour.
