Pearl and Diamond Necklace: Epitome of Class and Refinement

Elizabeth Taylor; Halle Berry; Christina Aguliera; Sharon Stone and Michelle Obama; what do these women all have in common? All of these women show classy taste in jewelry selections, and have been photographed or seen on the red carpet, wearing diamonds and pearls together. They all believe in the marriage of diamonds and pearls. The classic lines of snow white pearls with sparkling clear diamonds has evolved into the modern world with pairings of champagne pearls and chocolate diamonds or black Tahitian pearls with black diamonds. Black metals today can dramatize the pure colorless diamonds.

What Are Black Diamonds

Information on black diamonds

Until relatively recently black diamonds were't much sought after. Indeed, they were mainly just to make diamond cutting tools because it was thought no one would want to buy them, after all, black diamonds don't sparkle! A tiny spark of interest for Carbonado or black diamond emerged during the Art Deco period when black and white jewelry was much sought after. However, it could not compete with the popularity of black onyx and black opals. In recent years though it has become much more popular,possibly due to intensive marketing, but also because fashion is always changing.

Most black diamonds come from Brazil - they are also found in the Congo but the best dealers shy away from them because so many are conflict diamonds mined, stolen, bartered and used to get money for arms and war.

One constant question about black diamonds is whether they are real or not. Totally black diamonds are rare, often they will be a smoky grey. Some have been created by radiating clear or white diamonds which makes them turn black. If this is important to you as a buyer, just ask if they are completely natural when you are buying.

A Guide To Buying Diamonds Online

Online shopping is fast becoming the most desirable way to purchase items and it seems that the same is now true for our diamonds. This may come as a surprise to people that see the benefits of dealing with jewellers directly, particularly when you consider the dangers of online purchasing and the value of the item in question, but there are some definite advantages - if you know what you are doing.

Buying diamonds online has its appeal, but it is not without its problems.

Online jewelers and wholesalers are able to provide a greater range of goods and prices than your average dealer, meaning a better chance at a bargain, and it much easier to shop around and compare your options between websites; jewelry stores are limited in their selections but with the internet the choices are practically limitless. This method of buying diamonds is not without its issues, however, and there are aspects to be cautious about. With all this choice and low prices it is too easy to run in blind when you should instead be cautious and careful; that seemingly low-cost beautiful stone could be a scam. With websites, you have little proof of exactly what and who is at the other end and there are many traps that unwitting consumers can fall into.

So what is the solution to successfully buying diamonds online?

Having such a great selection can be overwhelming but if you are careful you can use it in your favour. If you are patient and carefully compare the options, prices and retailers, you can start to get a better idea of the market and the real value of the items as well as the other benefits that the dealer can provide, such as shipping, sizing and refunds. This sort of research is vital for so many reasons and you can never be too knowledgeable about the field. The more you know about cuts, styles and carats the more ammunition you have against dodgy dealers and you can show them that you are not to be messed with.

Once you have put yourself on a level playing field, go a step further and question the retailer as well as the stones. This means asking for grading reports from an impartial laboratory to ensure the diamonds are the real deal and looking at consumer reviews such as BBB online to check that the site is reputable. Finally, there is always the escrow option. This service acts as a midway point between choosing and paying for the stone and means that the item is sent to an appraiser before it is forwarded on to you or the dealer can be paid.

The escrow method is clearly the most appealing because it takes the pressure off and provides a great safety net between you and the dealer; however, you should not look at it as the only solution to the dilemma of buying diamonds online. Knowledge and patience is vital in buying diamonds online because if you are prepared to take the time to search for a desirable, worthwhile stone - rather than just jump at the first, pretty one on offer - you can ensure that you will not be outfoxed by dealers and can walk away with the diamond you always wanted.

      My mom had a ring with a very large black diamond in it. The ring somehow disappeared over the years but every time I see the price of black diamonds I think of that ring and wonder who walked away with it. That ring sure would be worth a lot today. It was beautiful. I loved how the gold looked next to the black which is why it stood out in my mind.
