Characteristic

The diamond is the hardest mineral of all, consisting of crystallized carbon from the center of the earth. It rates 10 on the Mohs scale of hardness. This means that only a diamond can scratch another diamond. Diamond valuation encompasses the 4 C´s: Carat, Color, Clarity and Cut. The diamond is the birthstone of April. 

Origin

Diamonds are mined all over the world, with the most important sources being Botswana, Russia, Canada and South Africa. Australia is home to the most beautiful yellow and pink diamonds.

History

The first historical mention of diamonds was in India. Until the 18th century, it was the only country in which diamonds were mined. In ancient Greece, people believed that diamonds are splinters falling from the stars, or even teardrops from the gods.

Jewelry

As a symbol of unity, strength and ever-lasting love, the diamond is, of course, ideal for engagement rings. Worn by itself, it has a bright and unique brilliance and fire, but you can also combine it with colorful gemstones for a  more casual look with a touch of glamour. 

Our diamond pendants have a very clear brightness and are the epitome of timeless elegance. They are perfect for evening events and special occasions, but can also be mixed with casual daily looks.

Care Recommendations

Clean with warm water and soap. Do not use ultrasonic or steam cleaning. It is recommended to store diamonds separate from other gemstones so that they cannot scratch them.
