~ April’s birthstone is the Diamond……….

I have found some facts about DIAMONDS

What does the word “diamond” mean?
The word comes from the Greek word "adamas," and this means "unconquerable and indestructible."

The "4Cs" of diamond grading are;
Cut, color, clarity and carat. These 4Cs were created by the Gemological Institute of America to help standardize diamond grading worldwide.

The first diamond engagement ring was given to Mary of Burgundy from Archduke Maximillian of Austria in 1477

Diamonds are on average 3.4 billion years old.

Although in their purest state, diamonds are entirely colorless and brilliant. However, did you know that they also come in a variety of colors such as yellow and brown.  Blue and pink diamonds are very rare.
