Celebrating the April Birthstone: The Diamond

Does someone special in your life have a birthday in April? What better gift than to give your friend, family member, or partner a beautiful piece of jewelry with their birthstone on it?

While all birthstones are beautiful, the April birthstone is the diamond, which is arguably the most precious and sought-after stone of them all. Diamonds look great on any piece of jewelry, and you can get custom-made pieces that reflect the style of your loved one.

If you are looking for the perfect birthday gift, read on to learn why a piece of jewelry with a diamond is an excellent option. 

The Origin of The Diamond

Diamonds have an interesting history that has led them to become one of the most popular gems of all time. Diamonds were first discovered in India in the 4th century and were immediately regarded as valuable stones due to their shiny appearance and hard exterior. 

While the origin of birthstones is not as well documented, the birthstone for April gets its name from the Greek ‘Adamas,' which translates as indestructible. Diamond rings have been used as engagement rings since Roman times, and this tradition is still in existence today.

Best Ways to Wear Diamonds 

The diamond is versatile, which lends itself to many different jewelry types. Of course, traditional engagement rings are almost always made with diamonds, but custom rings can look great with a mixture of diamonds and other birthstones, such as sapphires. 

Diamond earrings are a great addition to any outfit since they catch the light, creating an iridescent sparkle that’s eye-catching. You can wear diamond earrings with formalwear, but also dress up a casual outfit with them.

As well as rings and earrings, diamonds look fantastic on pendant necklaces. Since diamonds are striking, they draw attention to the wearer and often receive many appreciative glances.

Whether you like gold, silver, or rose gold jewelry doesn’t matter; diamonds are the most adaptable birthstones and go well with various metals. There aren’t many ways you can go wrong with diamonds, and this is why they remain in-demand with consumers.

Shopping for Diamonds (Tips and Tricks)

Since diamonds can be expensive, you must buy good-quality diamond jewelry that is long-lasting and, more importantly, looks good. Here are some things to keep in mind when searching for the perfect diamond earrings or ring.

  • Consider the carat size: Depending on how big or small you want your diamond to be, the carat weight is essential. Remember that, the bigger the carat, the more expensive the piece of jewelry will be.
  • Think about the cut: If you’re looking for a diamond ring, do you want a round-cut or princess-cut? When creating a custom ring, compare cuts to see which best suits the design you have in mind.
  • Consider the clarity: You want your diamond to look blemish-free and be crystal-clear. Ensure that you see the diamond in person before purchasing it to ensure it is in good condition.
  • Get some expert advice: If you want to buy diamond earrings as a birthday present or propose to your other half with a custom-made diamond ring, consult the professionals. Arrange an appointment with a jeweler who can assist you in finding the best quality diamond possible.
