There's A New LBD — The Little Black Diamond Ring

Ever since Mr. Big proposed to Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City 2 with one, the black diamond ring has been gaining devotees — and not just in engagement circles. Attribute the trend to Carrie’s enduring fashion influence or simply to a growing love of the look itself. Nothing says you’re one of a kind like a gem the color of the midnight skies.
If your taste is more rarified than your budget, and you’re seeking a black diamond ring, you may want to opt for a white sparkler that has been heat-treated to turn it the darker hue. Naturally occurring black diamonds are incredibly scarce (some scientists say a supernova created them billions of years ago!) and wildly expensive. Here, 19 styles to tempt you.
