Black Diamond Friday

Forget the sales stampede and instead enjoy our luxe spin on Black Friday starring dramatic black diamonds. 

Christina Debs Skin Tattoo black diamond ring

If you’ve glanced at the news over the past few days, you’ll know that today is Black Friday - an annual day of pre-Christmas deep discounting that has been known to bring shoppers to blows. Instead of following the crowd, we’ve decided to revel instead in black diamonds, so have taken a leaf out of US jewellery store TWISTonline’s book and are renaming it Black Diamond Friday.

Electric sapphire and black diamond bracelet
The dark and moody hues of this bracelet from Brazilian-born jeweller Fernando Jorge have been evoked through a mix of blackened gold, black diamonds and black-blue sapphires. 

Rather than slash prices as other stores are - and let’s face it, most are just using Black Friday to get rid of old stock - TWISTonline has chosen to highlight a selection of jewels set with black diamonds from independent designers such as Tomasz Donocik, Anna Sheffield, Nikos Koulis and Jacqueline Cullen.

Twist Online’s picks range from Greek jeweller Lito’s delicate black diamond necklace with a blackened gold and black diamond pavé parallelogram pendant, to a statement bracelet from Brazilian-born Fernando Jorge’s Electric collection, which emits a dark sparkle with blackened gold, pear-shaped black-blue sapphires and round black diamonds.

This edgy black diamond ring from Christina Debs’ Tattoo collection is designed to look like body art.

To give you plenty of inspiration this Black Diamond Friday, we’ve created our own edit of black diamond jewellery set with those raven gemstones. Opt for an edgy design, such as a black diamond ring from Christina Debs’ Tattoo collection, designed to look like body art, or bring a little fun to your jewellery box with Bao Bao Wan’s Panda necklace, which uses white and black diamonds to create a cute animal motif.

For the real luxe factor, there are Alessio Boschi’s dramatic black diamond earrings, which drop down from faceted black diamonds to lustrous baroque pearls. Or the monochrome haute joaillerie cocktail ring set with white and black diamonds by de GRISOGONO, whose founder Fawaz Gruosi was one of the first to use black diamonds in fine jewellery designs and says he “fell under the spell of carbonados - their mysteriousness, their deepness.”

So forget elbowing your way through the sales - today is most definitely Black Diamond Friday.

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
