Diamonds come in a fantastic variety of shapes, sizes, cuts, and styles. Diamonds are also famous for their prestige value, but these gemstones are if anything underrated for their beauty and elegance.
Diamond as a birthstone
The actual word "Diamond" comes from the Greek word for "indestructible". Their cultural origin is in India, where diamonds were the gemstones of royalty. Diamond has a very long history as a birthstone, dating back to the second century. Diamonds are revered for the power of clarity and strength and "warding off the evil eye".
Diamonds as designer jewelry
Diamonds are typically thought to be classic upmarket designer jewelry. This is true of larger diamonds, and big, complex jewelry designs. In practice, however, diamonds are often used in less expensive designs, mainly for aesthetic reasons. These incredible gemstones can be used for any number of types of jewelry, from basic rings to brooches, necklaces, and similar personal adornments.
Diamonds seemed to be always at the forefront of jewelry design throughout the centuries. In modern and custom jewelry, designers have been using diamonds as integrated gemstones, sometimes even within other gemstones. These dazzling inserts can be used in gemstones like topaz and amethyst, creating beautiful internal highlights.
