April Birthstone – Diamond Information

April 6, 2012
April Birthstone – Diamond Information

Birthstones have been around since ancient times, and first gained mainstream popularity during the 14 th and 15 th centuries in Poland. Although birthstones have varied across cultures and time periods, one thing is certain: the month April has been associated with the diamond ever since the National Association of Jewelers created the modern birthstone list in 1912. More than any other month, April is associated with rebirth, renewal and the Earth’s natural life cycle. When you look at it this way, the diamond is a fitting choice for the April birthstone: the precious gem is a result of carbon formations that grow deep below the Earth’s surface over a long period of time. When a diamond finally is discovered or mined, and eventually ends up in your hands, it’s truly a symbol of the life cycle. A diamond is classic and beautiful any month of the year. But given the gem’s association with April, now is the ideal time to invest in a gorgeous colorless diamond. This timeless 4.01 carat pear shaped diamond in our collection has all the warmth and simple sophistication of an April afternoon. Its gorgeous G color grade and quality cut make this diamond luster from every angle, and with an internally flawless (IF) clarity grade, this loose gem has a striking natural beauty all its own. With such a classic cut , this pear shaped diamond would be perfectly suited for a simple ring setting or as a timeless pendant. This diamond has all the warmth and life of the spring season, but is beautiful enough to carry you through all 12 months of the year. Are you looking for a diamond with more fire or flash? Do you prefer a cushion cut, emerald cut, or Asscher cut diamond? Diamond & Estate Trust’s exquisite collection of loose diamonds includes diamonds of all shapes and sizes. We’ll help you find the perfect loose stone and will even incorporate it into a custom piece made with your style sensibility in mind. And for a piece of vintage diamond jewelry, view our estate collection, which contains pieces ranging from Victorian to Art Deco eras and beyond.
