Elusive Luxury

Black diamonds become basis of inspiration for a variety of opulent goods
Implications - Carbonado, or "Black Diamonds," are now the luxury good to covet. As these gems are very rare, they offer the feeling of exclusivity, but they also provide a dark mystique that can make one feel both sexy and subversive. While real black diamonds are hard to come by and even more expensive to purchase, that's not stopping designers from using them as inspiration, evidenced in the cars, beauty products, jewelry and even gourmet foods that have been influenced by these precious stones' magic and mystery.
