An Introduction to Fascinating Colored Diamonds

The pressure is on when it comes to buying gifts this time of year. Our brilliant jewelry gift ideas inspire you to get cracking with your shopping. Today, in our list are enigmatic colored diamonds.

When approaching to buy a diamond, any diamond – colored or regular, basic research is expected and recommended. In nature, diamonds are found in almost every color and hue you can possibly imagine; grey, white, yellow, red, green and brown. And contrary to popular belief, it is actually very rare to find a diamond that doesn’t have any color at all. So, what makes a diamond’s color so important when making a purchase? It comes down to the behavior and physics of light when it passes through different mediums.

Colored diamonds (e.g. black, brown, gray) can negatively affect light absorption, and thus the sparkle of the stone that we see. That is why white (colorless) diamonds are generally more valuable and commonly used in jewelry as they have better reflective qualities. Of course, the exceptions to this rule are the rare and much sought after colors of pink, red, blue and orange.

Tips for Buying Quality Colored Diamonds

To determine what the gem will look like up close, it is important to use some helpful identification tips.

  • Colored Diamond Color Quality

Whether a diamond is pink, blue, brown, or any other color, the hue may vary in its richness. If a diamond is color enhanced in a lab, it will usually have a more vibrant color. However, some gems are created to have a pastel color. With natural diamonds, the majority of colored stones do not have very vibrant colors. If they do, they tend to be more expensive. However, people who plan to use these diamonds to create unique jewelry will find them to be good investments. Yellow, pink, blue, black, and brown diamonds are some of the most popular colors. People who are trying to choose a color should also consider the setting for the stone. Smaller colored diamonds may accent a larger white diamond nicely. The color of the type of setting is also important to consider. Some types of metal may complement certain colors better.

  • Colored Diamond Grade

Colored diamonds are usually assigned a specific grade, which is different than the famous “four Cs” of diamond quality. The color grade refers to the richness of the stone’s hue. Color grades are assigned by the Gemological Institute of America, the Independent Gemological Institute, or the European Gemological Laboratory. It is important to know that not all gems are sent to one of these authorities for evaluation. If a diamond is certified by one of these institutes and has been graded, it will likely cost more than similar diamonds that are not certified. When sellers are not providing certified gems, another way to see a better picture of the stone’s color quality is to ask for a multi-angle video rather than several still photos.

Remember, for every 10,000 carats of white diamonds mined each year there are only 5-10 carats of colored diamonds found. Colored diamonds evoke a sense of romance and luxury. Their scarcity and stunning beauty make them spectacular additions to any collection.

Why Three Stone Rings Make Exceptional Engagement Rings

On the stroke of midnight, you are gifting your beloved a three stone ring. Imagine how special that moment could be. This is all possible with our exceptional collection of three-stoned rings that you can look up to on this Christmas eve. With this, we present the much anticipated ‘last minute gift ideas’ collection from MySolitaire that celebrates your love with three-stone engagement rings. These brilliant pieces have been expertly handcrafted by our artisans to last a lifetime.

What three stone rings stand for

As a classic promise ring for celebrating treasured occasions, each gemstone symbolizes your past, present and future as a single soul in twin bodies. The scriptures say that the center stone represents the present and is also the biggest of the three stones. The smaller stones that surround the middle one represent the past and future. Together, they carry the message of friendship, love and fidelity.

The different styles

Typically, there are three different styles of three stone engagement rings to choose from: equally sized, traditional graduation and slightly graduated.

When all the stones are of equal size, they are of the same carat weight whereas the traditional graduation will have a center diamond weight that is equal to the sum of the other two diamonds. Then, the lesser graduating ones are those where the center stone will be slightly bigger than the outer ones.

A great thing about three stone rings are that you can select gemstones instead of diamonds for the surrounding stones and look just as stunning as a ring with three diamonds.

MySolitaire has been serving happy couples since 2004, and will continue to do so with unrivaled standards, to provide the highest possible level of radiance. You can rely on our rings to find the absolute best intricate delicate designs. There are endless combinations of center-stone and side stone options to consider; you can also pave detailing along the band if you prefer to give it a modern touch.

Why Our Black Diamond Rings Make for The Perfect Ring

If you want to make a statement and looking for one-of-a-kind gift for this Christmas, our unique collection of fancy black diamond engagement and wedding rings is for you.

A Small Tale Behind Engagement Rings

Engagement rings have been the ultimate symbol of love for thousands of years. In ancient Egypt, they wore rings on the third finger of the left hand to mark where the “vein of love” went directly to the heart, starting a tradition that continues today.

Our Black Diamond Rings

Available in a variety of our most popular design settings, you can opt for a simple solitaire ring or an eye-catching halo design. Choose from a choice of our preciously sourced metals including platinum, white gold, yellow or rose. Our rings are set with fine-quality diamonds and can be ordered in any precious metal. We carry all-black diamond pieces as well as rings accented with white diamonds.

The most important value factor to consider when shopping for black diamond engagement rings is the quality of the center stone where clarity is the most important aspect of a black diamond’s quality. We at MySolitaire hand-selects only the best quality conflict-free gems that are expertly cut for maximum beauty. Our stunning pieces are perfect for the one-of-a-kind beauty in your life.

How to Remove the Ring Safely

When taking off your engagement ring, don’t pull on the gemstone: it doesn’t affect the gem but can stretch the metal that holds it in place over time, making the setting less secure. You can use mild dish soap to clean black diamond rings.

Why Us

In business for over a decade, our selection is truly unmatched. Whether it’s for a flattering moment for that special day, or just a gorgeous gift for the most important person in your life, MySolitaire’s black diamonds take care of it.

Also, any of our designs comes complete with its own independent diamond certification.

As in 1947, Frances Gerety penned the slogan “A Diamond is Forever,” a line so elegant and effective that we are still using it almost 70 years later. It indeed helped underscore the MySolitaire diamond’s significance as an enduring, unbreakable symbol of love.
