In a word .... very! Black diamond rings for men are gaining in popularity and because of this phenomenon you will see a growing number of manufacturers creating a wide array of black diamond fashions - particularly for men. Men seem to like the color which symbolizes strength and conviction. There also appears to be a mysterious element to the black diamond that translates to the man wearing it. With this being said, black diamonds in rings and other jewelry have made their way to the top of the fashion jewelry category and appear to be there to stay. They are attractive, unique, different and set apart the wearer in a way that says, "I dare to be different, I like to stand out in a crowd."

Grading a black diamond is different from that of their contemporary - the white diamond. The black color in an dof itself obscures most if not all of the diamond imperfections that allow white diamonds to be graded. In white diamonds "D" is considered colorless and in extremely high demand resulting in higher and higher costs. But most white diamonds are in the D-J category meaning that they range from colorless to slightly colored. With Z meaning that they have a hue of yellow and are the least expensive to purchase and the least appealing to the eye. Black diamonds happen to be rare which makes them unique and eye-catching - there simply are not as many on the market and being worn as white diamonds. Black diamonds actually are not transparent - they do not show "fire" like a white diamond. They absorb rather than reflect the light. Black diamonds are in the colored diamond category and are sometimes referred to as fancy diamonds.
