Diamond - an Expression of Love, Beauty and Wealth

Diamond as an Expression of Undying Love

Diamond is a very strong stone and I guess that may be the reason it is considered indicative of stability and longevity in love and marriage. Despite being a very costly and valuable stone, this stone does not fail to attract grooms who want to give bigger stones to their brides as an expression of love and devotion to them. Maybe this is the quality which makes the ring made of this stone the most preferred engagement ring. It is also the wedding anniversary gemstone for the 30th and 60th year of marriage.

Diamond as an Expression of Beauty

Diamond comes in several colors like white, blue, red and black. However, white and black are the most popular and preferred colors. These gemstones are used to make beautiful jewelry which enhances the beauty of the wearer. Well, is there anyone who is not fascinated by such beautiful jewelry?

Diamond as an Expression of Wealth

Possessing diamond gemstone or jewelry is considered as a symbol of wealth. This is a very costly gemstone and more the caret or size the more the cost. It is used as a show off as to how much wealthy a person is or as a status symbol because of its value.

Diamond was not a stone anybody could afford because of its price till a few years ago. But now diamond jewelry is available at reasonable prices to suit any budget. Now you do not need to be filthy rich and wealthy to own this gemstone.
