April Birthstone – Diamonds!

April doesn’t offer much in the way of exciting holidays. In fact, it’s become synonymous with rainy weather that yields beautiful results in May, but we believe April is more than merely the precursor to May. So for those of your fortunate enough to be born in the fourth month of the year, you get to reap the rewards of diamonds. That’s right, the most coveted birthstone in the calendar year is yours!

Diamonds have some very unique properties. Diamonds exhibit legendary toughness and rates all the way at the top on the hardness scale. In fact, the only thing that can cut a diamond is another diamond. The diamond is also beautifully simplistic, made from only one element, carbon. Diamonds also have a fantastic luster when polished, probably more so than almost any other gemstone out there, so these babies can really sparkle.

Lately, color enhanced or naturally colored diamonds have been in vogue. Sure, everyone thinks of them for weddings, engagements, and anniversaries, but if you decide to go color neutral, diamonds are perfect to wear each and every day to add a sense of sophistication and style to any wardrobe choice.

So to all you lucky people that were born in April, hold your heads high and shine bright like the diamond you are.
