Diamonds are billions of years old—in some cases more than three billion years old. There is evidence that Diamonds were being collected and traded in India as early as the fourth century BC. In the first century AD, the Roman naturalist Pliny is quoted as having said, “Diamond is the most valuable, not only of precious stones, but of all things in this world.” During the Middle Ages Diamonds were thought to have healing properties able to cure ailments ranging from fatigue to mental illness.
You can’t go wrong with a timeless gift of Diamond jewelry. Whether a ring, necklace, or earrings, there truly is something for every April baby’s taste.
