Splurge or steal: The black diamond trend

Add some bling to your digits with a darker gemstone.

The Trend: There is something so magical and alluring about a black stone. Even Carrie Bradshaw agrees. Do you remember her blingy black diamond engagement ring from Big? The darker gems are glamorous, enchanting, and even though they can be somewhat understated, they always add a bit of dazzle and hit of mystery to any ensemble.
