Back in Black: Casting a Spell Over the Fashion World

by 66mint Fine Estate Jewelry September 26, 2013

A Starless Night

Black diamonds--more popular than ever--are the ultimate choice for today’s fearless fashionistas. Rather than reflect light, black diamonds soak it in. The result is a stunning contrast that is (literally) day and night. These sparkle-free stones have a daring depth and unparalleled elegance that suggest an innately bold sense of style. The dark drama of exotic black diamonds is uniquely highlighted against the traditional sparkle of white diamonds in 66mint’s Black Diamond Hoop Earrings, featuring 226 round cut brilliant diamonds that dazzle and defy expectations. In this stunning Black Diamond Ring, 20 black, round cut diamonds are piercingly perfect against a clean backdrop of cool white gold.

The Pearl’s Evil Twin

While white pearls typically stand for purity and innocence, black pearls suggest a different kind of allure. These coveted jewels were treasure enough to inspire the naming of Captain Jack Sparrow's beloved boat, and with good reason: they are tremendously rare, and of great value. Johnny Depp himself would be mesmerized by the opaque luster of these Mauboussin Nadja Black Pearl Earclips; the coordinating Mauboussin Nadja Black Pearl Ring offers equal impact, particularly highlighted against a constellation of pave cut white diamonds. Shades of gray are all the rage today, so for a pitch perfect variation on black, consider 66mint's Black Pearl & Diamond Earrings, featuring gray cultured pearl earrings in contrast with a setting of decorative marquise cut white diamonds.

The Black Arts

in many cultures all over the world, onyx was originally believed to offer protection against evil energy and black magic. While we can’t vouch for the magical mojo of this spellbinding stone, we can vouch for its otherworldy appeal. We're drawn to the dynamic of fierce and feminine in these Diamond & Black Onyx Drop Earrings. Earthbound dark angels will also love 66mint's Diamond & Black Onyx Ring, featuring an of-the-moment interplay of warm yellow gold alongside opaque onyx.

Wizard Wear

Although recently coopted by the ladies, black jewelry was originally the dark domain of men’s jewelry, and remains a powerful choice today. The jet-black face of 66mint's Panerai Luminor GMT Ocean Chronometer Watch is rich in simplicity, whie the Onxy, Diamond Gent's Style Ring makes a flashier statement.

According to Einstein, "Dark is the absence of light," and we all know what they say about absence. Today's black jewelry is certain to make even the blackest heart grow fonder.
