Black Diamond Wedding Rings – Adding White Diamonds for Contrast
Black and white diamond wedding rings work wonderfully well. Black diamonds are very popular in their own right. The same is often said of white diamonds. Put both together and you have an entirely unique combination. The reason for this is the contrast. High colour (very white) diamonds and black diamonds are striking when set together. Pavé styles are best for a very good reason. On their own, small black and white diamonds will be a little lost, but set these two opposites in flowing bands and you have visual impact. Two-tone black wedding rings, set with white diamonds also match white diamond engagement rings. They can even be worn as eternity rings, should the occasion arise.
Another reason for combining both white and black diamonds relates to transparency. Black diamonds tend to reflect light. You cannot look into the diamond in the same way you can with white diamonds. Combining both means you do not lose the transparency but you gain both qualities of each diamond type. Concentrated inclusions within black diamonds, account for the colour, but treated black diamonds also exist. Sometimes treated black diamonds offer a better polish, something difficult to achieve from black diamonds.
Black diamond rings can have surrounding borders of white diamonds (aka the halo setting) or more typical for wedding rings, a stripe or band of white diamonds, there are many variant styles. Often, the black diamond sizes will also vary. Smaller sizes are best for pavé style settings. Diamonds set closely together with small grains of metal, rise from the surface of the ring. This creates a paved effect, hence the name. Building up a surface of diamonds, especially in two colours, achieves striking results. For wedding rings, this is done in any width, or ring profile depending on style preference.
