Diamonds have been charming us for centuries and even as time passes and trends come and go their popularity has never waned. The enchanting stone has been admired for centuries, Ancient Hindus believed they were bolts of lightning, whilst other ancient cultures proclaimed that they were the tears of gods. There has always been a magical aura surrounding the gem.

These stones are glittering and many have fallen under their spell. They are sparkling, dazzling and are simply beautiful. They’ll always look stunning, whether you’re in jeans and a t-shirt or a glamorous evening gown, and they definitely help to elevate your style. It’s true that we have all fallen for their twinkling looks, but there’s so much more to diamonds than this.

Diamonds are a symbol of everlasting love. They have been synonymous with engagement rings for years, associating the stone with commitment and true love. Although there has been a surge in coloured gemstones in engagement rings it still tends to be a beautiful diamond that hopeless romantics dream of. When someone receives a diamond ring it symbolises their love, along with the promise that you’ll be together forever. A diamond manages to make a million promises without saying a word. It’s an everlasting token of your relationship and a truly sentimental piece of jewellery. The romance of a diamond is undeniable.

But diamonds don’t just have to be for engagements. A beautiful piece of diamond jewellery can be given to show your love to anyone important to you, your mother, sister or friend. Diamonds tend to mark a celebration and are often given on special occasions. This means that as well as being valuable they are usually emotional. They can hold memories and will always mean something special to you. Every piece of diamond jewellery has a story to tell.

As well as being a girl’s best friend, diamonds are also forever! A beautiful piece of diamond jewellery will never go out of style and will always be truly timeless. Fashion icons are constantly spotted in beautiful diamond pieces, from simple pieces in their off-duty look to stunning, statement styles on the red carpet.  Diamonds will always transcend trends and for years women have gone weak at the knees for a stunning piece of diamond jewellery. No matter how many times you change your wardrobe, you’ll never grow tired of a diamond.

As Elizabeth Taylor said: “Into every girl’s life a little diamond should fall.”
