Eve's Insight

Quarter of a Million Dollar Black Diamond Nail Polish?! Seriously!??

Black diamonds are sexy. They are sparkly. And black diamonds are fascinating.

However, until very recently they were only used in industrial applications – think high tech drill bits and other scientific & medical abrasive applications. Diamond suppliers & mining firms, like De Beers, could not imagine anyone would want to use them in jewelry.  Well, that has certainly changed. Black diamonds are alluring, mysterious and fun!  They work beautifully in jewelry, especially when paired with white hot platinum and palladium precious metals, and even white gold.  Look at the image below to see black diamonds beautifully set in Eve Alfillé’s exquisite jewelry designs.

But there is a new application of black diamonds that leaves many scratching their heads — Black Diamond nail polish.  Not black nail polish named Black Diamond, but black nail polish MADE from (oh, excuse me, “infused with”. . . ) black diamond powder, supposedly 267 carats of crushed black diamonds, available for a mere $250,000.!!

So, who would wear such a thing, you ask. Well, Beyonce for one and heavy metal Rocker Ozzy Ozbourne’s daughter Kelly  sported the polish at the Emmy Awards this year.

Kelly, this is how one wears black diamonds & looks beautiful, a fantastic black diamond necklace by French-born jewelry designer Eve J. Alfillé!

Seriously, $250,000. for a manicure that wears off in a week or so, or you could walk down the red carpet wearing a fabulous necklace by artist Eve J. Alfillé with over 100 carats in black diamonds, sparkling in all their faceted glory in a charming pattern featuring large faceted black diamonds held between 2 smaller ones glittering brightly even in the low light of an intimate restaurant, for a mere $10,900!
