April Birthstone Jewelry Under $200

Updated on April 6, 2014

Lovely Diamond - the Queen of Gemstones

If you want to celebrate an April birthday - it's easy: just give a diamond!

There is no gemstone as revered. Diamond has important industrial uses because of it's hardness. But it is as a jewel that it shines: it is the traditional wedding stone, as a "diamond lasts forever."

It's just carbon at its base - but oh how much difference there is between a diamond and a piece of coal. It takes heat, pressure and some good luck to form diamonds. The value of a diamond is based on the Four C's: carat, color, clarity and cut.

Because of the Queen of jewelry's great value, it is surprising to find bargains but I have been able to find lovely examples for a great price on Amazon due to their economy of scale and access to a wide variety of sellers. I hope you enjoy them!

Our Hardest, Most Revered Stone

Diamonds are carbon, but vive la difference between plain carbon and the jewel. Of course some diamonds are used in industry because the hardness makes them so useful in cutting, but primarily most famously they are used for jewellery.

Deep in the mantle of the Earth, diamonds are formed. Then they are brought to the surface through volcanoes and we reap the benefits.

I really thought this ring was unusual: I have never seen a buckle-ring before. One reviewer said that it was "even more beautiful than they had expected" and another used it at their daughter's 18th birthday and it was very well-received.

Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes - Rich Girl Flaunts her Wealth in this Memorable Music Video

I love this wonderful song by Paul Simon and Joseph Shabalala about a poignant romance between a poor boy and a girl so rich she wore diamonds on the soles of her shoes. Paul Simon is of course infamous since Simon and Garfunkle days and Shabalala was the founder and choral leader of South African choral group Ladysmith Black Mambazo.

For hiring this group, Simon was criticizing for breaking the apartheid ban towards South Africa. I fully support him however, as he helped showcase these amazingly talented musicians and paid them far beyond scale.

Diamonds are Found Many Places in the World

While we traditionally think of diamond mining in Africa, the truth of the matter is that we can get diamonds from many places including the United States. There are diamond fields in Arkansas for example - and a teenager recently found a diamond there that was over three carats.
