The Stunning Diamond is the April Birthstone

The birthstone for the month of April is the beautiful diamond which you typically see in the clear (white) color. However, over the past decade or so, colored diamonds have gained strength in popularity and are also suitable as the April birthstone.

The diamond gemstone has been treasured for centuries and can be quite pricey for the high-grade flawless or near flawless diamonds. Most diamonds have flaws and they are graded on a scale; the more flaws your gemstone has the cheaper it is.

A gift of diamond jewelry stands for "everlasting love" so that is why it is a prized gift for engagements, weddings, birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions. No two diamonds are alike so all diamonds are one-of-a-kind.

The most common cut when it comes to diamonds set into jewelry is the round brilliant cut which enhances the diamonds sparkle and fire more than other types of gemstone cuts. These days you can find diamonds in all kinds of fancy cuts like the trillion cut, marquis cut, baguette cut and princess cut.

If you are getting ready to celebrate your 10th Wedding anniversary, a piece of diamond jewelry is a traditional gift to give. Many anniversaries are celebrated with an anniversary ring. Because the Diamond is the birthstone for April, it is also a very traditional gift to give someone special.

The diamond is a very hard stone and can be set in a multitude of settings. Care for your diamonds by keeping them clean so that the sparkle is evident with every movement. There is nothing quite like the brilliance of a sparkling diamond which is why it is given such high regard by millions of people.
