Did you know that diamonds are the birthstone of April? Know anyone with a birthday in April? Can’t think of what to get them? For the April-born, diamond jewellery really is the perfect gift then. It shows how much you care and how conscientious you are of when they were born (“See? I didn’t forget!”). It also shows how much you’re willing to spend on them, and if you’re willing to give that much to others, won’t they be willing to give you just as much in return? “Do unto others as you would have them to unto you.” Oh wait, that’s the Golden Rule, but it applies to diamonds too. What’s the Diamond Rule? Possibly that diamonds are a girl’s best friend. So friends can be bought after all. Then let us go buy them, and what better opportunity than a birthday?
Just kidding. Where can we find diamonds? Hey, let’s go to Just Gems, which is where fine bespoke diamond jewellery lives. Theres a whole diamond community there, where diamonds celebrate their diamond-ness. But why are diamonds so special? Diamonds are really, really tough for a start. Their name, “diamond,” comes from the ancient Greek word for “unbreakable.” so you know it must be hard. Diamond is also an allotrope of carbon, and it has very strong covalent bonds between its atoms. That’s why diamonds are so hard. Since they’re so hard, they’re difficult to contaminate, which accounts for their clear color. Diamonds also disperse light into a diverse array of pretty colors because of their high optical dispersion. That’s why they’re so lustrous. Diamonds are popular since they’re so all around awesome. Since they’re so cool, they even have other substances like cubic zirconia and silicon carbide trying to pass off as them. But diamonds are unique and one-of-a-kind, so these other wannabe materials can’t compare. If you’re buying your sweetheart a diamond ring to propose, don’t buy a cubic zirconium ring. A fake diamond might be a misrepresentation of your true, undying love.
Of course, diamond jewellery doesn’t simply consist of rings. You can buy a huge assortment of diamond earrings, diamond bracelets, diamond necklaces, diamond brooches, diamond charms—take your pick. So, what to get our April-born friends? Like with any other gift, we should consider their preferences and needs. Not everyone has pierced ears, so diamond earrings might be out of the question. Not everyone likes circlet designs, so maybe we’ll go for a triangle. But there’s something here for everyone, and you’re sure to find a piece your friend will enjoy. Diamonds are forever, and so are friendships. What better gift could there be other than a symbol of your lifelong companionship? Choose from a diverse selection of diamond jewellery at your local jeweller today.
