The Diamond is April's Birthstone

The Diamond is Aprils Birthstone Diamond1-2Diamonds, whose name comes from the Greek for “invincible,” were first brought to the West's attention by Alexander the Great. But it would be thousands of years before diamond jewelry became commonplace in Western society.

By the 1400s, because of improved extraction and transportation, diamond necklaces and diamond rings became regular adornments of landowners and royalty. The first diamond ring intended to announce marriage engagement was commissioned by the Archduke Maximillian of Austria in 1447 to his love, Mary of Burgundy. Diamond jewelry at this time was also thought to help keep the wearer healthy. Queen Elizabeth I was given a diamond necklace with the intention that wearing it would help prevent any infections.

When we see diamond jewelry, we do not think of keeping one healthy or social status, we think of the name's meaning, invincibility. We give diamond jewelry to celebrate invincible bonds, whether they are within marriage, family, or friendship. Although the diamond is April's birthstone, and therefore diamond jewelry is an appropriate gift for someone close to you with an April birthday, diamond jewelry is appropriate and much appreciated at any time of the year for any occasion to celebrate your invincible bonds with close family and friends.
