Black Diamonds & Pendant Giveaway

A couple of years ago, I was introduced to some fun black diamonds. Before this, I thought of diamonds as white, pink, yellow and blue colors. Of course with the exception of white diamonds, I have not yet gathered enough courage to buy me some color diamonds. Regardless, I don't discriminate when diamonds are in question; I love all equally. I see black diamonds as something more fun and unique. I don't know if black diamonds are as investment worthy as a white diamonds since I have not come across any at Sotheby's and Christies yet, but these little stones sure are interesting and stylish. Recently, luxury jewelry houses such as Qeelin and De Grisogono have been using black diamonds so we shall see if black diamond might just become mainstream.(Qeelin Gold Fish via Qeelin starting at $4900 and up) -black diamond ring $250 via ice.com
-Sethi Couture black diamond ring $770 each via Ylang23.com
-white and black diamond bracelet via heavenlytreasure.com
-white and black diamond butterfly pendant $435
-double heart white and black diamond pendant $339 (both via Kranichs.com)
-black and white diamond panda pendant $229 via amazon.com

What is your favorite diamond, white or color? I hope to buy me a pink diamond one of these days. ~ Sight.... For now, I will have lots of stylish fun with black diamonds.
Since I am gushing about stylish black diamond, Savvy Mode will be giving away a stylish black diamond pendant on a delicate 14K white gold chain (18 inch) courtesy of Kranich's. Because I wanted to open this giveaway to both U.S. and international Savvy Mode readers, I got the pendant in my little hands already. The retail value for this circle diamond pendant is $209. *** Above picture is a closeup of the pendant below. My picture is not as professional as the one from Kranich's website.

  1. Oh my golly gosh! what an amazing giveaway.

    Diamonds are my best friend!
    I've been dribbling over the Tiffany & Co brochure that popped through my letterbox the other day. I keep leaving it around the house open on the pages I like, but the other half hasn't taken the bait just yet!

    My all time favourite would be white diamonds, but I've never really seen the black, they are gorgeous!!!!!!

    Will pop a piece in my sidebar today xxx

  9. Oh, this is FANTASTIC!!! I am actually a yellow diamond LOOOOVER. I think this is because I just love yellow in general. I'm not a fan of the pink at all, because for me I can get that look for MUCH less with a semi-precious stone. But I think I still prefer a classic white diamond. I've really been wishing I had chose a solitaire for my wedding ring. But alas, I'm sure hubby will get me a new one eventually!

    Oh, and I put a link up on my sidebar so that means 3 entries for me!

    My favorite diamond piece in your blog would have to be the double heart necklace. I saw something similar w/ sapphires before and fell in love with the idea. As for what I own, I'm sorely lacking on diamonds. All mine as accents for sapphire jewelry. But one of these days I want a very basic pair of diamond stud earrings.

  98. Funny, I have only 1 diamond ring that my mom gave me and I rarely wear it. I love white diamonds set in platinum - it's such a classic look and goes with everything.

    Since I FINALLY graduated college after all these years, I've been thinking of a class ring - but the "traditional" rings are so very high school. Now, you have me thinking of a simple diamond to commemorate my accomplishment.

    Oh and I posted your giveaway on facebook. Woo hoo!

    ReplyDelete
  99. I never knew how much I could love black diamonds until I saw your giveaway!
    Seriously, I think I might have started to drool a little.
    Besides my engagement ring {as my favorite piece}, I am seriously digging that necklace!!
    I will tweet about this - @SassyBrideTN.

    as i say in my blog post, my favorite diamond piece is my mum's engagement ring that my dad gave her over 42 years ago and she gave to me when i turned 16. i havent taken that ring off for 9 years now except for when i shower (but then it goes onto a necklace so i dont lose it).
    its the most precious material thing i possess.
