We've all heard the the old adage, "Diamonds are a girl's best friend," and with its brilliance, scintillation & dispersion it's easy to see why. Diamonds, the most popular gemstone, are also the symbol for steadfast love. Another slogan we've heard many times is that, “a diamond is forever.” This is because of the stone’s symbol of deep, everlasting love, as well as the fact that it’s the hardest substance known on earth.
The diamond is also the stone that marks the 60th anniversary of marriage, and is the birthstone for the month of April. Here's a beautifully curated collection of dazzling diamonds available at Alfies.
