Remember the old sayings like diamonds are a girls best friend, no diamond can ever be too big and was it not Zsa Zsa Gabor that once said that she never hated a man enough to give him his diamonds back! We think it's fair to say that all girls love diamonds especially big ones that are put into diamond rings that can be worn on the finger and admired by all.
What is it about diamonds that draws the eye? Let us not forget that the diamond is essentially carbon, or as someone once said nothing more than chunks of coal that stuck to their jobs.
Indeed a well cut, quality diamond is essentially a thing of great beauty and has what is known as fire. The fire is as a result of the diamond redirecting the light by refraction. The amount of fire that a diamond has very much depends on the quality of the stone and the expertise of the diamond cutter.
It's hard to believe that an uncut diamond which is a lump of rock hewn out of the ground, could be polished and cut into something so beautiful and something which will be loved and treasured for ever. Nature really is a wonderful thing, she really knows how to make things of great beauty. Diamonds really are forever.
