What's Your Story?: Black Diamond Cufflinks

January 18, 2013

For years, women had all the fun with diamond jewelry. But the idea of men wearing jewelry has skyrocketed in the last decade. Whether worn for spiritual significance or for fashion, men have recently grown to wear  jewelry more frequently as a way to accessorize their looks. 


N & P wanted to gift their dad a piece that had purpose and they loved the idea of creating something with black diamonds, especially since it paired so well with the black and white diamond drop earrings they were planning on gifting their mom for a special 40th wedding anniversary! Their dad's style is simple and when it came to jewelry, I wanted to make a piece that had a subtle look as well. These custom-made black diamond cufflinks in 14k white gold were designed to make a statement, but in an understated way.

For their parents 40th wedding anniversary, N & P wanted to get something extra special for their parents. But shopping for a mother who already has an abundance of stunning jewelry pieces is never an easy task. N & P knew their mom loved pieces that were bold and eye-catching, but they also wanted to get her something that was unique to her existing collection. 


In 2010, Carrie Bradshaw's character in the movie Sex in the City received a black diamond as her engagement ring. Since then, black diamonds have grown significantly in popularity and women across the world are looking for their own black diamond jewelry.  

By pairing black diamonds with classic white diamonds, we created these 3+ carat stunners to not only reflected the jewelry taste of their mom, but also compliment the piece that N & P were gifting their dad (next post). These incredible white and black diamond drop earrings in 14k white gold were custom designed for a dramatic look, yet a classic and elegant feel. And N told me "they loved it! Mom and dad said the pieces were gorgeous!"

I am so ready for Fall! This year it's all about deep rich tones. Royal blue remains a designer favorite. But can you really blame them? This regal hue provides a beautiful contrast to chic black.
