As the April birthstone, diamonds are the ideal gift for a loved one. In the first century AD, the Roman naturalist Pliny stated: “Diamond is the most valuable, not only of precious stones, but of all things in this world.” Diamonds are among nature’s most precious and beautiful creations. The world’s love of diamonds had its start in India, where diamonds were gathered from the countries rivers and streams. Some historians estimate that India was trading in diamonds as early as the fourth century BC. Since then they have been mined in locations all over the world including Brazil, South Africa, Botswana, Australia and importantly deposits in Northern Canada were discovered in 2000.
Diamonds are the hardest material on earth: 58 times harder than anything else in nature – The Greeks named this gemstone adamas, meaning invincible. They are believed to promote love and purity, not surprisingly as they are the most popular choice for engagement rings.
