Champagne Diamonds

Now that we've busted the myth of white diamonds only, I want to introduce other "color" diamonds. Today's post is dedicated to champagne or chocolate diamonds, which range from a light yellow/brown to a rich, dark brown. Clever jewelry marketing people tend to call these warmer colored diamonds champagne or cognac diamonds.

Do champagne, chocolate, and chocolate diamonds occur naturally or are they artificial?
The answer is yes, to both. There are some natural ones, and there are others that have had their colors enhanced through irradiation.

Here are a few Handiwork Jewelry pieces with this warmer, color diamond as its centerpiece and accent

I just came across your blog, and I love it! You have a marvelous layout, and great photography. I especially love these photos. I think the one that looks like a cow is my favorite. I love quirky jewelry!
