Hello April. Time for doing those “Spring” things, like bringing some color into your life! I find it peculiar that April is the month of the diamond (a girl’s best friend!) since they are generally not that saturated with color. I don’t do a lot of diamond pieces, but we all need a best friend as an anchor, so I totally approve of at least one in the mix. Especially in rings, where they really “play well with others”!
Did you know that diamonds are no longer the hardest substance on the planet? There are a couple of materials that have been discovered to be harder (according to my ball&chain, my head should be on the list too) but none of them are going to have diamond dealers losing any sleep, because wurtzite boron nitride or my head aren’t going to look that good set in a bezel or prongs. Diamonds have been around for thousands of years, originally they were valued as talisman for protection and to ward off evil (in addition to their shiny sparkly allure).
I especially like the “wacky” ones. You know, the crooked broken ones that look like they’ve had a hard life – full of flaws and character. When I find them, if I have the cash, I buy ’em. They always look great with my other rocks.
Sometimes, you don’t want a ring, you want something else, anything but. My friend Jane, brought her engagement rings (yes, that would be plural) to me after she left her husband, and had me make a few other things with the stones. I made these earrings for her with a couple of the diamonds.
I have a couple of diamond pieces in the shop, you can check them out here: DIAMOND
