The History Behind the Diamond Birthstone

By  | 

The diamond. A timeless symbol of love and the special birthstone of those born in April. It’s safe to say that many are envious of this birthstone, and it’s easy to see why. Its iridescent sparkle and shining reputation are enough to make the other months of the year jealous.

Adapted from the Greek word “adamas,” meaning “invincible,” diamonds are one of the hardest substances in the world and are thought to be unbreakable.

But why is April lucky enough to call this gemstone its own?

Luck may in fact be the reason. No one really knows how certain months became associated with certain gemstones. Over time, gemstones were linked with zodiac signs and in 1912, each stone was officially associated with a specific month of the year.

Diamonds were believed to possess extraordinary healing powers and were even thought to cure illnesses linked to the brain. In ancient Greek history, it’s said that the diamond made a warrior unconquerable.

Naturally, diamond jewelry is the perfect gift for the special person in your life celebrating an April birthday. With its unmatched sparkle and brilliant history, it’s sure to be a gift she’ll love.
