How Chocolate Diamonds Came To Be

According to Le Vian, not all Chocolate Diamonds are what they appear to be; in fact, the name comes from their color. My good friend Bill Furman used to bring me a batch of homemade artisanal chocolates every day when he visited me after work, so the name was inspired by him." When he talked about chocolate's health benefits and aphrodisiac properties, he would often mention it.

Le Vian was moved by Furman's enthusiasm for his chocolate business. According to Bill, he helped him realize how similar he felt to chocoholics when it came to his admiration for brown precious stones. And thus was born the moniker!

White Diamonds vs. Chocolate Diamonds: Who Wins?

Chocolate Diamonds are brown diamonds of the highest quality. All-day-wear diamonds, whether white or any other color, are the strongest and most durable gems in the world. Some differences remain, however. Diamonds of any color, including brown ones, are less transparent than white ones, so their radiance may be diminished as a result.

Aesthetically, they're clearly distinct from one another as well. 'I think a quality that makes chocolate diamonds appeal more to some women than regular white diamonds is that they can be really elegantly understated,' says Le Vian. It is not uncommon for white diamonds to be too ostentatious and flashy for day-to-day wear. Many high-class women are turning to Chocolate Diamonds because of this. Dressing down is all the rage right now, and the range's earthy, golden tones make its diamonds more suitable to wear with every outfit and occasion," says the jewelry designer.

Chocolate Diamonds: Goods and Bads

The appearance of a Chocolate Diamond is one of its greatest advantages: it is unusual and unexpected, and as a result, it immediately stands out. If you're not a fan of white diamonds, this one is a good option because it's essentially the opposite.

Chocolate diamonds are less expensive than white diamonds despite being more rare. As a result of our trademarking, the value of chocolate diamonds has risen greatly, Le Vian says. According to this report, the cost of larger brown diamonds has increased by a factor of 25 since the 1980s and 1990s.

Affording an Engagement Ring: What to Expect to Pay

Chocolate Diamonds can be worn with a wide variety of metals and gemstones, making them more versatile than you might expect.
