Love the Sparkle? AKA Brilliance

By Nancy DeRoo on 11/21/2019

Love the sparkle? A.K.A. brilliance 

If one diamond has 58 facets and if it has all the great features of proportion, polish and symmetry it is truly a thing of beauty.  Having more facets on one diamond doesn’t mean that it will have more “brightness”.  But, take a perfectly proportioned diamond times 3-4-5, can you imagine the brilliance? 

Historically diamonds got their start in India, where diamonds were gathered alluvially (water borne), that’s where the world got their love of this gemstone.  But, they go back even to Pliny’s time, the first century A.D.  To paraphrase him, they are most valuable, not only of precious stones, but of all things in this world.   Things haven’t changed much have they? 

A diamond is 58x harder than any other gemstone on earth.  Whether it is earth grown or lab grown!

A diamond is a great way to demonstrate how strong your love will be, enduring, lasting and brilliant!! 

Whether choosing a band for an anniversary or for a wedding band, it is a beautiful and durable choice.  Some women don’t want a gemstone set up high but they love the brilliance of diamonds.  Get her a multi-stone diamond band.  I have some wonderful examples for you to choose from.
