Unlike other diamonds, black diamonds don’t sparkle, but they do have a unique and highly reflective adamantine lustre. Given the opaqueness of black diamonds and the fact that the passage of light is not as important as in a colorless stone, a black diamond engagement ring has few setting limitations and is quite flexible.
Diamonds come in a wide variety of different colors, shades and tones, including blue, green, yellow, pink and brown. The term ‘chocolate diamond’ was actually only coined in 2000 and is used to refer to diamonds of a deep shade of brown. Prior to that, dark colored diamonds were considered less desirable.
A cushion cut or cushion shaped diamond is one that is essentially a square emerald cut. The corners of this kind of diamond are cut pretty deeply, and that gives it the appearance of being almost like an octagon.
