Behold, the April birthstone - aka the diamond. Also dubbed as one of the world’s most sought-after and adored gemstones to date. And those born in April are lucky enough to call such a remarkable gem their birthstone. Read on to explore the diamond’s timeless charm, history, meanings and more in this article.


The Diamond’s History, Meanings & Lore

Believed to be one of the toughest substances in the world, the April birthstone is so strong that even its name, translated from the Greek word adamas, means “invincible” or “unbreakable” which the word “adamant” also stems from.

Diamonds do more than just sparkle and charm. There are many ancient theories touting the magical powers of diamonds. But the most common belief is that the April birthstone was used to ward off the evil eye, cure poison and provide protection against the plague.

Some thought lightning bolts formed diamonds, while other theories suggested that diamonds represent the tears of God. Many also claimed that it is a boon of longevity, strength, beauty, and happiness.

Historians, however, believed that diamonds originated in India, where they were mined from rivers and streams. Back then, the birthstone was once reserved for only India's wealthiest. But these gems soon made their way to Western Europe and, by the 1400s, became a fashion statement among Europe's high society.


Resilient With An Unmatched Brilliance

In addition to being April’s birthstone, a diamond is ideally gifted on the 60th and 75th wedding anniversaries. This is mostly due to the diamond’s symbolism of eternal love and marriage.

To quote the iconic actress, Marilyn Monroe, “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.” But now diamonds could be anyone’s best friend. Besides engagement and wedding rings, the April birthstone is also used in necklaces, broaches, bracelets and more.

With a Mohs Hardness rating of 10, the diamond is a resilient gem perfect for everyday wear. Still don’t believe in how strong this timeless beauty is? Get this, the only thing that can scratch a diamond is another diamond.

While clear diamonds are the most recognizable, they also come in a range of colours! With blue, green, and red being the rarest. Diamonds can be transparent, translucent, or opaque, but the majority are colourless and transparent.


Diamond As A Birthstone

This springtime month offers April-borns bubbly personalities, like little rays of sunshine peeking through the clouds. Aries babies are passionate go-getters but these high-achievers can sometimes be impulsive and impatient. 

Taurus babies are known to be down-to-earth but they also have a taste for the finer things in life. The downside? They can be stubborn when things don't go their way. And because of their materialistic nature, they are more prone to overspending as they love to splurge!

That said, this is why each month has its own birthstone – with some months having more than one. Lucky for you, April-borns, with the sparkly diamond, you’ll have sunny days ahead! 

Wearing diamonds was also believed to strengthen relationships and increase inner strength. Additionally, it can also restore energy, improve mood swings and provide clarity for peace of mind.
