WHY IS DIAMOND SPECIAL?
Diamond is timeless, best-known and most sought-after gemstone. By its pure word — beauty, purity, rarity and love comes to mind. Its origin brings many to amazement. During the old times, early men already had fascination to this rock called “diamond”. Greeks considered diamonds as tears shed by gods whereas Romans thought of it as sliver from falling stars. Towards the end of 15th century, diamond became as prime symbol of love. As the story goes, Archduke Maximilian gave the very first engagement ring to his beloved and place the diamond ring on the second finger of the lady’s left hand for it was believed that the second finger is the channel of love passing directly to the heart. Even after 50 years, the diamond is still considered one of the most precious gift to symbolize love & eternity.
What are the elements that make the diamond unique?
Oddity: Even though there are newly discovered resources for diamonds, its supply are still considered limited. In fact, more than two hundred fifty tons of ore need to be confounded, crushed and refined merely to produced a 1 carat of rough diamond. And only 20%% of these rough diamonds can be qualified for gem cutting.
Lastingness in Quality & Value: Diamond is considered as the hardest element on earth showing its endurance to any form of deterioration. But diamond must be treated with care and can be worn daily and even passed to future generations. Diamond prices may fluctuate but its value remains even after many decades of being enjoyed and used.
Elegance: Brilliant and colorless diamond has given its costly priced gem for many years. Every stone cannot be copied thus each stone is uniquely made. It has its own character and personality.
