The classic stones for wedding rings

You cannot start talking about alliances and not talk about diamond. King among all gems, its brilliance and white reflections shine in both gold and silver, and represent purity. This makes them the ideal stone for a wedding.

Among all of them, the one that is being seen the most lately is the black diamond.

But in addition, they are more porous than ordinary diamonds, which has generated many hypotheses about where they originate.

Currently, the most reliable theory indicates that they originate… extraterrestrial! Formed in the vastness of space before reaching Earth!
