The Best Gift - Diamonds!
Long before diamonds were the standard gemstone for engagement rings, they were the official birthstone for the month of April. Birthstones are a wonderful way to honor someone on their birthday, and one of my favorite things to shop for! Diamond jewelry is the perfect gift for a family member or loved one, and because of their sturdy nature, these beautiful timeless pieces can become family heirlooms that are passed down for generations.
No one knows exactly how long birthstones have been a tradition, but some people speculate that they date all the way back to biblical times when priests would wear a zodiac pendant with 12 stones, each one representing a month in the year. It wasn’t until 1912 that the American National Association of Jewelers released an official list designating certain stones to specific months, and thus creating the modern tradition of wearing only the gemstone associated with the month of your birth.
Diamond jewelry can be anything you’d like. From delicate stud earrings to pendant necklaces and dazzling tennis bracelets, the only limitation is your imagination!
