April is Diamond Month!

DiamondWith April comes the season of spring – butterflies, blooming flowers, and sunshine. What better way to celebrate it than with dazzling diamonds that are just as radiant? For those whose birthdays fall in April, you are in luck for the diamond is your birthstone.

The word diamond comes from the Greek word “adamastos”, which translates in English to “invincible”. When it comes to strength, it is indeed so; diamonds are the strongest substance on Earth. All else being equal, polished colorless diamonds also hold the greatest brilliance of all the gemstone birthstones.

Famous celebrity birthdays in April include Jennifer Garner and Victoria Beckham, both of whom are definitely no stranger to diamonds! In 2009, Ben Affleck surprised his wife on her birthday with a stunning 7-carat diamond ring, which rivalled her 4.5 carat Harry Winston engagement ring. Victoria Beckham has been known to own a whole collection of engagement rings, one for every occasion. Among them is a marquise cut center with two trilliant cut side stones on either side, worth approximately $1.3 million gifted by husband David Beckham.Jennifer Garner
