DIAMOND

April Birthstone

 
 

Diamond have been sought after and cherished for centuries upon centuries, as far back as the ancient Romans and beyond. Not only are these gems beautiful, but they are also strong, and can even be used for beneficial purposes.

In ancient Rome, it was believed that diamonds were slivers of stars that fell from the heavens above. Subsequently, it was believed by many that diamonds held magical powers. Today, diamonds are valued and treasured equally, yet they still remain a mystery in many ways. Diamonds can be complex and difficult to choose. Since they cost quite the pretty penny, it is important to become informed before purchasing any diamonds.

Diamonds are categorized by four criteria, known as the 4 c’s. These include color, clarity, carat weight, and cut. Each and every one of these factors impacts the quality, and consequently, the price, of the diamond. Each and every one of these elements is important. However, one must decide which are of the most importance and make certain that the highest quality possible is obtained.

Nowadays, diamond engagement rings are the norm. This was not always the case. The tradition began in 1477 when Archduke Maximillian of Austria presented Mary of Burgundy with a diamond engagement ring. The phenomenon quickly became widespread among the privileged and became mainstream in 1870 when additional diamond mines were found in South Africa. It was in the late 1930s that America became home to the most premium of diamonds and diamond engagement rings became quite common.
