April Birthstone – Diamond

April Birthstone – Diamond

and for the 60th wedding anniversary

The traditional April birthstone, diamond, is the symbol of everlasting and unconquerable love. So, it is appropriate that the 60th wedding anniversary is known as the “Diamond Anniversary.” It is believed that wearing diamonds leads to better relationships and increases inner strength as well as other benefits such as bringing balance, clarity, and abundance to the wearer.

The name for diamond in Sanskrit was vajra, which also means lightning. In Hindu mythology, vajra was the weapon of Indra, the king of gods. Adapted from the Greek word adamas, meaning “invincible,” it might surprise you to know that diamonds come in many colors, including green, pink, black, red, orange and yellow. The color of the diamond is a result of the impurities or trace elements in the stone’s chemical composition. For example, black diamonds are a result of graphite and iron inclusions and the presence of nitrogen gives a diamond a yellowish color.

Sterling Silver with a brushed matte finish, this elegant necklace will update any look  from day to evening.
