April Birthstone Platinum Jewelry: Diamond Wedding Band Edition

Those born in the month of April have the desirable diamond as their birthstone.  Diamonds are so deeply-rooted as the unequivocal symbol of eternal love that since the discovery of the first large-scale diamond mine in the 1860s, their widespread use in engagement and wedding rings is so prolific that they outstrip that of all other gemstones combined.

Formed at high pressure and temperature to become the hardest natural material known to humankind, diamonds allude to endurance (in fact, the word “diamond” derives from the Greek “adámas,” meaning “inalterable” or “unbreakable”). Romantic connotations are powerful and indisputable when diamonds are set in secure, eternally white platinum.

Diamonds disperse white light; in other words, refraction separates visible wavelengths into a spectrum of pure colors… more commonly known as a rainbow. Not surprisingly, legend states that diamonds combine the best qualities of all gemstones to bestow the wearer with the ultimate in luck, health, happiness, and love. April babies sure hit the jackpot!
