Diamonds: April Birthstone

Diamonds have been popular gifts for centuries and today are known most as the stone in an engagement ring.

Historians note that the diamond first became a popular gemstone in India and has been traded since around 4 B.C. The Moghuls and Imperial Colony easily mined diamonds from deposits along three major rivers.

You probably already know of the diamond’s toughness. In fact, it’s the hardest gemstone and is made of just one element: carbon.

Its structure is harder than anything in nature and can only be cut with another diamond. While it’s become nearly synonymous with wedding engagements, it’s also the perfect stone for individuals who want something that’s just as appropriate for everyday wear as it is for special occasions.

Diamond colors have a wide range, including yellow, red, pink, blue, and green, and the intensity spectrum is from faint to vivid. Generally speaking, the more saturated the color, the higher the value.
