In the month of April, we celebrate one of the most adored gemstones of all time. The diamond symbolizes the ability to come out of a high-pressure situation feeling stronger.
Two conditions must be present to form a diamond: high temperature and high pressure. Since the diamond is formed under these circumstances, it has the highest thermal conductivity and hardness than any other natural material (which means they’re totally worth the hype). The name diamond is derived from the Greek word, “adamas,” which means invincible or unbreakable.
Diamonds have been sought-after since ancient times for these enduring qualities. The first diamonds were discovered in India and instantly recognized for their strength and brilliance. In our contemporary culture, we love to adorn ourselves with these sparkly accessories, but they also have a variety of practical uses due to the strength of the stone. In some parts of the world, the diamond is even claimed to possess supernatural or healing powers. In fact, the first Queen Elizabeth of England was said to have worn a diamond against her breast to protect herself from the bubonic plague.
The rich history and resilience of diamonds hit home this April in particular. We’ve selected a few dainty diamond styles to remind you that small and mighty is a force to be reckoned with. If you’re celebrating a birthday this month, there’s no doubt that your plans might look a bit different than you had anticipated for 2020. Here’s your reminder to channel your fabulous birthstone and shine bright through the pressure.
Crazy for cuffs
If you love a cuff bangle, you’ll adore this remix for your finger. The Hayworth Stackable Diamond Ring features a total of 11 diamonds, seven clustered in a floral-like pattern in the bigger tip that faces upward and four in the smaller tip facing inwards. From our Tinseltown Collection, this cable-style stack can be the shiny new addition to your collection in rose, white or yellow gold.
A fashion-forward pendant
If you think Queen Elizabeth I had the right idea, then you’ll love this next fashion pendant. Drape your décolletage with some dainty diamonds in a lariat style necklace. You’ll find any excuse to sport a low neckline to allow this beauty to take center stage of your OOTD.
Simply stunning studs
If we’ve said it once, we’ve said it a million times—you can’t go wrong with a pair of sophisticated diamond studs. These contemporary princess-cut diamond halo earrings will forever be your go-to accessory, whether you’re staying in or getting glam. With U-pave set along the square halos, this modern shape makes these earrings the perfect accessory to elevate your everyday wear.
Build your bangle stack
Skinny bangles are totally trending, and this stunner from our Tinseltown Collection is just the piece you need to elevate your everyday look to a dazzling new level. Available in yellow, white and rose gold, this brilliant bangle brings the heat with a sizzling cluster of nine mixed sized diamonds. You can rock this style on its own or as part of a stack.
One of the many reasons that we’re so captivated by diamonds is their internal fire—the colorful flashes you see when a diamond catches the light. This stone’s prism-like ability is unusual because it can disperse white light into a full spectrum of colors. Regardless of what month you’re born in, we’re all facing a high-pressure situation. To honor the April birthstone, we must dig deep to discover our strength and reflect our colorful spectrum too.
