April - Diamond (more information)

History of Diamond

The name diamond derives from the ancient Greek adamas meaning “invincible”.

The ancient Greeks and Romans believed diamonds were tears of the Gods and splinters from falling stars. In ancient India, Hindus, finding diamonds washed out of the ground after thunderstorms, believed they were created by bolts of lightning and attributed so much power to these stones they went so far as to place diamonds in the eyes of some of their statues. In the middle Ages and Renaissance period, every ring set with a precious stone was considered an amulet that conveyed magical powers like fearlessness and invincibility upon the wearer. An act of Louis IX of France that established a law reserving diamonds for the king, bespeaks of the rarity of diamonds and the value conferred on them at that time. Within 100 years diamonds appeared in royal jewelry of both men and women, then among the greater European aristocracy as symbols of power.

Over the last few century, the diamond acquired its unique status as the ultimate gift of love . It wasn’t until 1477 when Archduke Maximillian of Austria gave a diamond ring to Mary of Burgundy, that the diamond engagement ring was introduced.

Legends and Gemstone "Healing Properties"
In ancient times it was believed that diamonds could bring luck and success, but also that they could counter the effects of astrological events. In our place and time, the diamond is a symbol of enduring love, and often graces engagement rings.
