Happy Birthday April babies! Did you know your birthstone is the sparkling #diamond?

Here are some fun facts about this amazing stone:

Since the very beginning, diamonds have always been associated with romance and legend. As early as the 1st century AD, Roman text has said that Cupid’s arrows were tipped with diamonds as part of their extraordinary magic.

The very word “diamond” comes from the Greek “Adamas” meaning unconquerable, suggesting the eternity of love. In ancient times, Kings were known to lead wars on the battlefield wearing breastplates studded with diamonds, as it was believed that diamonds possessed extraordinary power that could be bestowed upon the wearer.

The first recorded presentation of a diamond engagement ring was in 1477, when Archduke Maximilian of Austria proposed marriage to Mary of Burgundy with thin, flat pieces of diamonds creating the letter “M”. Stop by our store to learn more about diamonds! :)
