Until the late 1800s, Diamonds were among the rarest gemstones on the planet, and due to their incredible hardness, coupled with the belief that cutting them would reduce their magical powers, were often not faceted. In fact, it was not until the 1400s that the first rudimentary facets were being applied to the gem. Then, in the late 1800s, everything began to change with the discovery of Diamonds in South Africa. Through huge marketing campaigns by the owners of these new deposits, the new kid on the gem block went from being fairly unknown, to unquestionably the global leader within half a century.
Jewellery is best stored individually in a soft pouch or a box with compartments away from sunlight and where harder gemstones can’t scratch softer ones.
