April birthstone – diamond
Posted On: April 7th, 2021
Spring has sprung and our April babies are not only lucky with their birthday being in a month surrounded by blossoming flowers, but their birthstone is also the precious diamond.
The diamond gemstone is both the traditional and the modern birthstone of April and is made of pure carbon. Diamonds were first mined in India, followed by Brazil and now rough diamonds are mined all over the world. In recent years, creating laboratory-grown diamonds has become increasingly popular. Laboratory-grown diamonds and natural diamonds are visually identical.
Diamonds traditionally symbolise faithfulness, love, purity and innocence which is why it is such a popular choice for engagement rings. They can come in a variety of colours, shapes and sizes, and is not only special due to its beauty and value, but each diamond is unique, as unique as a fingerprint.
