Happy Birthday, April brides! April's birthstone is the diamond, the quintessential stone for any engagement ring. The word diamond comes from the Greek word, "adamastos," which means "invincible". Fitting for a stone that in terms of durability is the hardest substance known to man. A gift of a diamond symbolizes everlasting love. A diamond is said to bring wealth, happiness and protection to the person wearing it. The diamond is also the anniversary gem for the 10th and 60th years of marriage. As Marilyn Monroe said, "Diamonds are a girls best friend!" We found inspiration this month with all these details blinged out in diamonds.
