While the classic Diamond evokes purity, transparency and immaculate beauty, as a photographic negative, the Black Diamond carries an aura of intriguing mystery in itself, which recalls the unknown forces of Nature. Usually opaque (no light or very little light can pass through it), these gems are coloured by the peculiar presence of inclusions, especially graphite crystals, unique to each stone. This makes a Black Diamond of fine jewellery gem quality rarer than a colourless Diamond bearing the same characteristics. Widely applied for industrial purposes, these Diamonds have come and gone from the luxury market, only establishing their notoriety as a top gem in the last few decades.
The protective energy of the colour black is even more powerful in a Diamond, the unscratchable stone. Its powers are maximized in the inverted setting, echoing defense spikes and directing the energy flow outward. Now an emblem of Ara Vartanian`s jewellery, the Black Diamond is a symbol of irreverence and class, with a touch of rock ‘n’ roll, capable of bringing out the force of the intriguing and powerful universe that resides in each woman.
