A Billion-Year-Old Diamond

Did you know that most diamonds are more than 100 million years old? And some may be over three billion (with a “b”) years in the making? Think of it… all that time spent crystallizing into that breathtaking gem you wear on your finger. Diamonds were first discovered nearly 3,000 years ago in India, and have been part of the religion and lore of most of the world’s civilizations. The name “diamond” is from the Greek word “adamas,” which means unconquerable, alluding to the gem’s unsurpassed durability and the implied eternity of love. Today, diamond is the most popular gem for engagement rings, as well as the official gift of the 10th and 60th wedding anniversaries. It is also the birthstone of those lucky enough to be born in April.
