Diamonds: A Guide To April Birthstone Jewelry

March 5th, 2022

Birthstone jewelry often serves as a unique, identifying piece, or as a sentimental reminder of someone you love. If you or your loved one was born in April, a piece of diamond jewelry will sparkle with sophistication as well as sentimental value. There are a myriad of different ways to adorn this brilliant stone, so read on for our tips on selecting pieces that will truly celebrate the beauty of a diamond.

History and Beliefs About Diamonds

The first recorded diamond discovery occurred in India as early as the 4th century B.C. and inspired plenty of awe and wonderment. Ancient theories about diamonds included that they were formed from lightning or were actually tears of the gods.

It was also commonly believed that diamonds had healing powers and could cure ailments of the brain. Today, some believe that wearing a diamond helps to increase inner strength and improve relationships. This widely beloved and historied stone deserves a presentation worthy of its beauty and significance.

Fashion Rings

While diamond rings are commonly associated with engagements and weddings, renowned designers around the world have been utilizing this stone to add sparkle and brilliance to their fashion ring collections. A band of diamonds or a single diamond accented by a halo or bezel setting will shine with unparalleled clarity.

A stunning piece like this Zeghani diamond ring truly celebrates the beauty of a diamond with three connected bands, one featuring a row of tiny accent diamonds and one featuring intricate metalwork accenting a larger, oval shaped diamond.

Pendant Necklaces

When choosing a necklace to emphasize the beauty of your April birthstone, you’ll want to find a piece that allows the diamond to be front and center. Pick a necklace that features a larger center diamond, perhaps embellished and made to look even larger and brighter by a halo of smaller accent diamonds.

This Stuller pendant necklace, for example, exalts the center diamond, showing the wearer’s appreciation for this most luxurious stone.

Tennis Bracelets

One of the most beloved pieces of diamond jewelry in American history is the tennis bracelet. A term coined after tennis player Chris Evert lost her diamond bracelet and halted the match until she found it, a tennis bracelet is characterized by a continuous line of symmetrical diamonds connected by a thin metal chain.

A tennis bracelet like this white gold piece glitters from every possible angle and magnifies the beauty of the diamonds inlaid in it.

Stud Earrings

Another classic celebration of the diamond is the timeless diamond stud earring. These pieces are minimal yet extravagant because of the multifaceted brilliance created by a flawless diamond. A diamond stud is versatile enough to be worn every day but sophisticated enough to be worn to an extravagant dinner party or black-tie event.

Unadorned diamond studs depend solely on the beauty of the stone itself to draw attention to the wearer. These prong-set studs are perfect examples.
