Did You Know?

Billions of years in the making…

Diamonds possess the greatest hardness and heat conductivity of any material on Earth. The ones you find on the fingers on newly engaged women or in your favorite heirloom piece were originally formed over the course of billions of years at extremely high temperatures and pressures at approximately 100 miles into the Earth’s mantle. These precious stones then emerge on the earth’s surface through volcanic eruptions of magma. When this lava cools it forms into igneous rock called either kimberlites or lamproites. These rocks are the magic source of where searchers of the globe find diamonds. 

India for the win!

Diamonds are thought to be first acknowledged and mined in India at least 3,000 years ago! It was there along the Krishna, Penner and Godavari rivers that rock deposits containing diamonds were discovered. Eventually diamonds were later found in Brazil, becoming history’s second hotspot. 

Not all diamonds are created equal. 

In order to distinguish the difference between various diamonds, gemologists have developed a grading system to measure the most important characteristics of a stone- famously known as the four C’s:  carat, cut, clarity, and color. The first “C” carat refers to the weight of the diamond. The second “C” cut measures the quality of the cut in terms of symmetry, proportion and other factors. The third “C” clarity grades how free of inclusions (trapped particles) the stone is and the fourth “C” color measures how “colorless” a white diamond is or the intensity of color found in a colored diamond. 

How do you take your diamonds?

Nowadays the diamond serves as the ultimate symbol of luxury, adornment, and beauty. With a shape and color to fit any preference, this gemstone also has the ability to be anything the wearer desires. Shapes of diamonds vary from round to square, heart to pear while colors can range depending on the exposure the stone receives from foreign minerals and particulates during its growth process. Diamonds that possess trace elements of boron are rendered blue, to nitrogen become yellow, and exposure to radiation are destined to be green. Gemologist maintain that a perfect diamond should have no color, but we’ll take them all!

      Jewelry Gifts for the December Birthday Girls

      The December color scheme tends to be dominated by festive reds and greens, but for the December birthday girl, it’s all about the blue.

       


      Over the years, opinions about which gemstone is the ‘official’ gem of December have changed. Up until the 20th century, December was a red month, celebrated with bloodstones and ruby.
