The phrase “diamonds are a girl’s best friend” truly fits those men and women celebrating birthdays this month. Formed over one hundred miles beneath the surface of the Earth, diamonds are considered the hardest gem of all. Their strength is so powerful that they are 58 times harder than anything else found in nature. The only way to scratch or cut a diamond is by using another diamond. A fun fact that not many people know about diamonds is that they can come in a variety of colors. Diamonds colors can be found in shades of yellow, red, pink, blue, and green. The intensity ranges from light and soft to strong and colorful. Color diamonds are so rare that in most cases they can cost more than bigger clear diamonds.
For centuries diamonds have been admired around the globe. However, it wasn’t until the twentieth century that the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) created the standards that are globally used today. To people and experts in the industry, this standard is known as the 4 C’s. The level and place on the scale for Color, Clarity, Cut, and Carat Weight help businesses and customers select and purchase the best diamonds.
Aside from being beautiful and strong, diamonds are also a symbol of everlasting love. They are also thought of providing people who proudly wear them better relationships, balance, clarity, abundance, and increase in inner strength. Those born in the fourth month of the year are very lucky. To get the perfect diamond, we encourage you to seek out J. Thomson Custom Jewelers in Oklahoma City.
