Birth Stone – April

Diamonds have been a popular stone for centuries, it has been reported that they were being traded as early as 4 BC. It’s the remarkable formation process has created the admiration which you see for diamonds today; the diamond must be formed well below the earth’s crust, being forced upwards until it is uncovered. Throughout history there have been many theories about the properties and capabilities of these precious stones. Many believed that the diamond has great healing powers, some even believing that they could cure brain disease, alleviate pituitary gland disorders and draw toxins from the blood!

The diamond first became a popular gemstone in India, as they were easily mined from deposits along three major rivers. However, as time passes, the diamond continues to become a worldwide stone, symbolising eternal and lasting love.

Many people often believe that the diamond is clear in colour, this is however not the case. Diamonds can come in various different colours including yellow, red, pink, blue, and green, all ranging in intensity. More often than not, the more saturated the colour, the higher the value. The diamonds structure makes it a staggering 58 times harder than anything else in nature and can only be cut with another diamond.
