A black engagement ring will always stand out amongst other types of rings. A black ring is a bold and ultra-chic way to break tradition. Typically black engagement rings will be a black diamond which is made when a diamond has so many inclusions it looks black. It is worth noting that for engagement rings you will want to opt for a treated black diamond that will fare better with everyday wear and tear as the inclusions are actually tiny fractures that make the diamond weaker.

Another stone option for the black engagement ring is an onyx ring. Onyx is a fairly tough stone ranging between 6.5 and 7 on the Mohs scale. Generally, the color black goes with a variety of colors and styles, so with a black gemstone or diamond, there is a lot of range in potential band materials, settings, and cuts.
