The Jewelry Insider

April 30, 2008

So naturally colored diamonds are generally extremely, incredibly, OMG how much, expensive. A pretty little (and I mean little – just one carat) fancy colored red diamond would, more or less, set you back a cool million. Pinks are more affordable – any A-lister Hollywood heavyweight can afford a three-plus carater pink, and any average Wall-Street Hedge Funding Joe can afford a nice fancy yellow.
For the remaining 95% of us fancy colored diamonds are considered a day-dream material, along with a yacht in the South of France and cellulite-free thighs. But, a few know a secret – that is how almost anyone can own their fancy colored gem. Black and champagne diamonds are not only much less expensive than their pink/red and blue counterparts – they’re also one of the hot-hit trends of the year.

Kat De Luna was seen sporting a rather cute black and white diamond necklace at the Latin Music awards a couple of weeks ago.

If you want to start off simple, then JCPenney might just be the place to start at. Black, white and champagne diamonds in a ring that’s good enough to drink.
