An affordable, contemporary-look gemstone, black onyx is a quartz-like mineral in the chalcedony family that offers a modern aesthetic for men’s and women’s jewelry. In contrast to agate—which has curved bands—black onyx has parallel bands and is easy to carve into various shapes including pendants, plaques, cups, and pot handles.
Popular since ancient Greek and Roman times, the onyx stone is believed to offer courage, protection from negativity in the face of conflict, and physical protection when going out at night. If you’re looking for a meaningful gift for someone close to you, a black onyx ring is traditionally associated with the birth month of August and the tenth year of marriage.
With its even, jet-black coloring, black onyx combines effortlessly with all of our gemstones and metals. Pair it with diamonds for a black-and-white effect or use it to bring out the vibrant hues of pink tourmaline, Swiss blue topaz, and citrine. Black onyx is also an excellent choice for a masculine ring and looks stunning when set in a modern geometric design.
