Said to be “a girl’s best friend”, the name derives from the ancient Greek word ‘adamas’ meaning invincible. The quality of this gem’s colour, clarity and cut are more tightly measured than for any other gemstone, and although there are various standards used across the globe, that of the Gemological Institution of America (GIA) is the most widely used. The value of similar carat weight of Diamonds can vary dramatically, based on their clarity and colour - and to some extents more importantly - how well the gemstone has been cut. Its very high refractive index is what gives the gem its famous sparkle; its strong lustre is described as an adamantine lustre.
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.
The youngest Diamonds are believed to have been formed over 100 million years ago! For the necessary conditions to occur naturally, it is believed that Diamonds were created some 90 to 120 miles beneath the Earth’s crust. The only other valuable gem on the planet to crystallise under these hostile conditions is Peridot. Although Africa is still a major supplier of Diamonds, today it holds less than 50% of the market share, and it cannot control the market as much as it once did.
Diamond is the birthstone for April and the traditional gift for the 60th wedding Anniversary.
Don’t forget that Diamonds can scratch any other gems or metalwork.
