Stone of the Month
Diamonds are among nature’s most precious and beautiful creations. Objects of lore and devotion, the April birthstone — diamonds — create an unbreakable legacy for the men and women who wear them as adornment.

Since the very beginning, diamonds have always been associated with romance and legend. As early as the 1st century AD, Roman text has said that Cupid’s arrows were tipped with diamonds as part of their extraordinary magic.

The very word “diamond” comes from the Greek “Adamas” meaning unconquerable, suggesting the eternity of love. In ancient times, Kings were known to lead wars on the battlefield wearing breastplates studded with diamonds, as it was believed that diamonds possessed extraordinary power that could be bestowed upon the wearer.

The first recorded presentation of a diamond engagement ring was in 1477, when Archduke Maximilian of Austria proposed marriage to Mary of Burgundy with thin, flat pieces of diamonds creating the letter “M”.

Today, more than 80 percent of American brides choose diamond engagement rings.

In April, we celebrate Diamonds!
