Far below in the crust of the earth, the carbon atoms bond under the pressure of heat and light in such a unique way that it gives birth to a stone of immense beauty, brilliance and value – DIAMOND.
Folktales believed that diamonds were tears of the gods or splinters from falling stars and Romans believed that Cupid’s arrows were tipped with diamonds relating them with love. Whatever, these stones have ruled hearts from ancient age.
Women need no extra reason to fall in love with diamond; they are just forever. The legends say that the Greek word, “ADAMAS,” meaning indestructible was the original name of this stone and it makes sense because these stones are more than 300 billion years old. Due to volcanic eruptions, these stones come out of the deep crusts of the earthly layers.
India was the original source of diamonds in the 1400s when Indian diamonds began to be sold in European trade centres. Since, those time, the knowledge of 4C’s was prevalent in Indian jewellery market and today it is composed into Diamond Grading Science.
