Diamonds are the enduring representation of special events and unforgettable moments in our lives. We give and receive diamonds as gestures of love, trust, and friendship. They are the symbol of strength, virtue, wealth, and eternal love throughout history.
The diamond is used to commemorate a sixty-year anniversary and is recognized as the birthstone for the month of April. Available in a variety of lustrous colors, they lend a theme to many fictional stories as well as renowned historical events.
The first documented diamond Engagement ring was presented to Mary of Burgundy in 1477 preceding her marriage to Maximilian, the Archduke of Austria. This custom lives on in Western societies and traditions today. While this is the most widely known association with diamonds, they can also be given for other reasons and in different forms of jewelry.
The diamond anniversary ring is given to renew vows or restate one’s unconditional love after a period of time. The more recent introduction of the right-hand ring is more commonly purchased as a gift to ourselves as something we’ve always wanted. A diamond ring can make a wonderful Mother’s Day gift. A gift with diamonds will always represent luxury and makes the receiver feels exceptionally special!
