Le Vian's Wonderful World Of Chocolate
Le Vian's Wonderful World Of Chocolate Diamonds
Indulge in the luxurious world of Chocolate Diamonds® by Le Vian! These rich and flavourful brown hues are unlike any other fancy brown diamonds, possessing unique qualities that make them highly coveted by fine jewelry lovers.
In this article, we'll uncover the secrets behind Chocolate Diamonds® and showcase a few pieces from three of Le Vian's newest collections featuring breathtakingly innovative designs.
Brown diamonds and chocolate diamonds: The difference?
First and foremost, it’s crucial to understand that not every brown diamond can qualify as a Chocolate Diamond® — the latter is distinguished by a set of unique color ranges and gem quality characteristics when sourced responsibly.
To be considered a Chocolate Diamond®, they must adhere to specific guidelines set by both licensed manufacturers and official gemstone charts.
Brown diamonds can vary in shade, from very light to dark. However, it’s fair to disclose that a large number of brown diamonds aren’t the most appealing for fine jewelry, having a dull texture with too many inclusions, for instance.
Le Vian® carefully selects natural brown diamonds that fall within the C4-C7 range on the Argyle color scale and are rated SI (slightly included) or higher on the GIA clarity scale. We aim somewhere in the medium to the dark range while looking for that warm, sunset golden hue in them.
Diamond qualities such as clarity and cut are vital to meet Le Vian’s exacting standards.
We aim to ensure each stone’s facets emit maximum brilliance, with subtle rays in spectacular brownish or golden hues on every movement.
Only the finest natural brown diamonds can meet these stringent criteria and earn the coveted title of Chocolate Diamond®.
How rare are chocolate diamonds?
Chocolate Diamonds are a rare and coveted type of brown diamond that is approximately 10,000 times less common than the typical colorless diamond — and have gained popularity among celebrities for over a decade now.
As mentioned earlier, these richly-colored brown diamonds are held to high standards in terms of specific hue intensities, clarity, cut, manufacturing, and inclusion levels to rank as a Chocolate Diamond®.
In fact, it is difficult to find brown diamonds that meet the above stringent requirements, leading to a limited number of Chocolate Diamonds® worldwide.
For instance, in 2019, fewer than 1,000 Chocolate Diamonds® weighing at least .5 carats were mined globally, in comparison to the 70 million white diamonds produced of the same size that same year.
The iconic Australian Argyle diamond mine, a major contributor to global diamond production, has recently closed down, leading to a decrease in the supply of pink and brown diamonds by 90%. As Chocolate Diamonds® become rarer, their value is likely to increase.
By purchasing Chocolate Diamonds®, you are investing in exceptional designer pieces that are likely to appreciate in the future.
What do chocolate diamonds symbolize?
Chocolate Diamonds® are prized for their symbolism of order, stability, balance, and clarity. It is believed that wearing a brown diamond can help one feel connected to nature and cultivate inner strength by promoting a sense of being grounded.
Chocolate Diamonds® are often associated with luxury, sophistication, and extravagance. They can equally be seen as a symbol of wealth and success.
In addition to their aesthetic appeal, these carefully selected brown diamonds are known for their ability to attract serendipity and harmony in your life.
