Your desire to own or wear a colored gemstone isn’t new or unique. Throughout all civilizations, gems have held a fascination – sometimes even a legendary power – for man.
Just about everyone knows what his or her birthstone is. Why is that? Because people still enjoy the folklore associated with the tradition of the birthstone. They like believing that wearing a birthstone brings them good luck and protects them.
The name “diamond” comes from the Greek word “adamas” meaning unconquerable – suggesting the eternity of love. In fact, diamonds have been the traditional symbol of love since ancient Greece. Discovered about 2,500 years ago in India, the ancients believed they were splinters from the stars, perhaps crystallized lightning or hardened dew drops.
There are no two diamonds alike, they are individually unique just like each of us. Tradition has shown us that four factors – know as the Four C’s – together contributeto a diamond’s singular beauty. These factors are Color, Carat weight, Cut and Clarity.
This provides us with common references and language to arrive at a diamond’s value throughout the world and across generations. To acquire a diamond is to become a part of that legacy, and the Four C’s is your tool to ensure your diamonds are the best your money can buy.
