The word alone rotates up hundreds of images: rare, precious, desirable, beautiful, sparkling tokens of love: known as THE DIAMONDS.
Created deep within the core of the earth and brought to the surface by a volcanic eruption, most of the diamonds sparkling on fingers today are more than 100 million years old!
In fact, as rare and fascinating, mysterious and magical they may be, the diamond has ignited romantic passion throughout history.
How Did Diamonds Become Famous In History?
Diamonds Are The Primary Token of Love
During the 15th century when Austrian Archduke Maximilian gave the first diamond engagement ring to his betrothed. It was said to our standards up to now that you should be placing a ring on the fourth finger of her left hand because that finger was believed to course with the vein of love that flows directly through the heart.
Moreover, after 5 centuries later, the diamond remains to be one of the most luxurious and desirable gifts for any romantic celebration as they are considered to be a gem of purity and brilliance which mainly symbolizes: “long-lasting LOVE.”
Now, let’s talk about What Makes A Diamond Special?
Diamonds Are Amazingly Unique By Its Character
Each diamond stone is complex by character and cannot be duplicated. A diamond can never be the same as each other. Each stone, like its owner, is endowed with a personality and character uniquely its own.

In fact, diamonds are the hardest substance known to men. A piece of diamond jewelry can be worn every day and passed on as an heirloom to the next generation.
