The Magic Of Diamonds
By Christine Huber
“Men grow cold as girls grow old
And we all lose our charms in the end
…”But square-cut or pear shape,
These rocks don’t lose their shape,
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.”
Gentlemen Prefer Blondes
Lucky are those of you to have been born in April because your birthstone is in my opinion the best gem out there, Diamond! Now as a gemologist I shouldn’t have favorites, but after spending years studying diamonds, there is nothing that compares to this magical stone.
Primarily diamonds are loved because of the fire and brilliance they create while interacting with light. The beauty and sparkle of a diamond is truly mesmerizing, haven’t you ever stopped every once in a while to look down at a ring on your hand just to enjoy the way a certain light can make a diamond dance?!
Diamonds are also tough. They’re not just a pretty little flashy gem, some other gems do have an almost similarly captivating way with light, but no other stone on this planet is as tough as a diamond. These two characteristics, beauty and durability make diamonds the natural choice for important jewelry worn and cherished every day.
Don’t get me wrong, all of our birthstones are wonderful and possess unique qualities, really! But I can’t help but be a little jealous of all you April babies out there that get to claim this as your stone!
