A chocolate diamond is for life, not just for Easter!
APRIL 19, 2019
A handcrafted chocolate egg is just what everyone wants at Easter time – a delicious, artisan treat to nibble and relish. Chocolate is a real luxury, but it usually disappears very quickly! Happily, chocolate diamonds skilfully set in handcrafted pieces of jewellery last much, much longer than your average Easter egg!
Chocolate diamonds are real diamonds, just like white diamonds, but they glow with a natural colour. The deep, rich brown is complemented very well by the warm tones of 18ct gold or the pinky hues of 18ct rose gold. When set in white gold, the colour contrast is also very striking. Paler versions of chocolate diamonds are cleverly called ‘champagne’ or ‘cognac’ diamonds – here at Stonechat Jewellers, it has be said we’re particularly fond of really chocolately chocolate diamonds!
Sometimes customers aren’t familiar with chocolate diamonds before they come into our shop in the Westbury Mall. They’re amazed to see the range of jewellery options that include these beautiful coloured gemstones. Some remodelled pieces featuring chocolate diamonds that we’ve made in our in-house workshop recently include…
A dramatic multistone two tone ring set with a customer’s own diamonds and one new chocolate diamond.
A gorgeous Aurora ring made from our customer’s own gold, set with a small round brilliant cut chocolate diamond.
Simple drop earrings with large chocolate diamonds set in 9ct white gold.
You might also be tempted by an incredible 18ct gold ring by designer-goldsmith Michael O’Dwyer…
A beautiful Anvers ring with a halo of tiny brilliant white diamonds that contrasts wonderfully with the deep rich colour of the centre stone and the warmth of the 18ct rose gold.
Small is beautiful with this 18ct rose gold Lika ring carefully semi bezel set with a round brilliant cut chocolate diamond.
Equally pared back but dramatic is the 18ct gold Stockholm ring.
Little or large, a chocolate diamond is a delectable way to guarantee glorious sweetness every day of the year, not just at Easter! We hope you enjoy the long weekend and get all of the chocolatey treats you deserve!
