Diamonds Offer Strength In Beauty
One of the most coveted gemstones, diamonds are a symbol of eternal love. The word Diamond comes from the Greek word “adamas,” meaning invincible or indestructible. Diamonds are made of pure carbon and form over billions of years. Ranking a 10 on the Mohs scale of hardness, the diamond is the world’s hardest substance. A diamond engagement ring is a well-known and recognized symbol of love and marriage, dating back centuries.
A Long Love Affair With Diamonds
Diamonds have long been a popular choice for jewelry throughout history, treasured by the wealthy and royalty since early times. The first diamond engagement ring on record was given by Archduke Maximillian of Austria in 1477 to his betrothed, Mary of Burgundy. In 1868, the 45.52-carat world-famous blue Hope diamond was believed to have originated from India before being sold to King Louis XIV in 1668.
Diamonds From All Over The World
In the 1700s, Brazil became the main source of diamonds and remained so until the late 1800s when diamonds were discovered in South Africa. By 1900, De Beers Consolidated Mines Limited controlled an estimated 90 percent of the world’s production of rough diamonds. Now, diamonds are mined from:
- African countries of the Democratic Republic of Congo, Botswana, and South Africa,
- and even northern Canada.
