A diamond is composed entirely of carbon. It is the hardest natural material on the planet, and comes from the Greek word for “unbreakable.” Diamonds form roughly 100 miles deep into the Earth’s mantle, and rise to the surface through volcanic eruptions. Diamonds are graded on the four C’s: cut, color, carat, and clarity. Diamonds are considered one of the four Precious Stones; the Sapphire, the Emerald, the Ruby and the Diamond. They are associated with longevity, particularly when it comes to relationships, which makes them perfect for engagement rings and gifts of love.
