The origin of the word diamond comes from the Greek word Adamas, loosely translated meaning indestructible or unconquerable. Diamonds are a 10 on the Mohs Scale of Hardness (10 being the hardest). They are formed and crystallized deep in the earth and are comprised of pure carbon which is one of the most common elements of 'life’. Perhaps this is the draw to these sparkling gemstones. With a life of its own, a diamond stands for strength, purity, and the indestructible bonds of love. This is why diamonds are the top choice for diamond engagement rings and wedding rings.
