Symbolizes eternal and lasting love.
Diamonds have been admired for centuries. Some historians estimate they were traded as early as 4 BC. One of the reasons diamonds are so admired and valued is because of the process by which a diamond gemstone forms deep beneath the Earth’s crust and is then forced upward until it is uncovered.
But before this process was understood, many ancient civilizations believed that diamonds were lightning made real on Earth. Perhaps this is the reason that diamonds have often been associated with great healing powers. Old legends stated the diamond could cure brain disease, alleviate pituitary gland disorders, and draw toxins out from the blood.
Diamonds can be found all around the world. Some of the largest mines are in Russia, South Africa, Canada and Australia.
Care and Cleaning
Warm, soapy water is always safe for cleaning diamonds. Ultrasonic cleaners and steam cleaners are safe except for stones that have been laser drilled.
