April’s Birthstone: The Diamond

April’s Birthstone: The Diamond

Each month is associated with a special stone, and for April, it’s the radiant diamond! Diamonds have captivated human imagination for millennia, esteemed for their unparalleled brilliance, durability and timeless allure. Delving into the realm of birthstones reveals a rich tapestry of traditions that span centuries, each gem imbued with symbolism and significance. Let’s explore the symbolism of the diamond birthstone, and we’ll show you five of our favorite ways to wear diamonds this season!

Birthstone Traditions

The concept of birthstones can be traced back to ancient civilizations, where specific gems were believed to possess mystical properties and were associated with certain months or zodiac signs. One of the earliest references to birthstones hearkens back to biblical times, where the Breastplate of Aaron, older brother of Moses, is referenced to have been adorned with 12 precious stones. 

However, the modern birthstone tradition began to take shape in 18th-century Poland, where each month was linked to a specific gemstone and believed to bring luck and protection to those born within that month. Over time, this tradition spread across various cultures, evolving to encompass a standardized list of birthstones recognized globally.

Love. Purity. Strength.

April's birthstone, the diamond, reigns supreme as a symbol of luxury. Formed deep within the Earth's mantle under immense pressure and heat, diamonds are nature's masterpieces, coveted for their extraordinary brilliance and extreme hardness. The word "diamond" itself is derived from the Greek word "adamas," meaning invincible, a testament to the gem's durability and enduring allure. Symbolizing love, purity and strength, diamond jewelry makes a wonderful gift for an April birthday or a sophisticated, classic addition to your collection. 

Diamond Stud Earrings

Embrace timeless sophistication with a classic pair of diamond stud earrings. Effortlessly versatile, these understated-yet-captivating gems add refinement to any occasion, whether it's a casual brunch or a formal soirée. Opt for round brilliant or princess-cut diamonds set in white gold or platinum for a timeless allure that transcends the trends.

At Occasions, we can help you choose the perfect diamond studs that you can wear forever.

Diamond Bangle

It’s all in the wrist. Adorn yours with a fashionable diamond bangle like this one, which features a row of round-cut diamonds set in 14 karat white gold. The bangle design is eye-catching on its own, or can be stacked with other bracelets in infinite combinations to create your own look. 

Wear your diamond bangle to spring galas or romantic evenings under the stars.

Diamond Pendant Necklace

Combine the diamond birthstone with the latest springtime trends and choose a nature-inspired pendant necklace. 

While the classic diamond pendant necklace featuring a solitaire diamond is a timeless choice, for spring, we recommend something a little more whimsical, like this butterfly-shaped diamond pendant necklace by ASHI. Whether worn alone or layered with other necklaces, a diamond pendant necklace adds a touch of sophistication and refinement to any ensemble.

Diamond Fashion Ring

Make a statement with a diamond cocktail ring that exudes old-world glamor and sophistication. Opt for a vintage-inspired design or a cocktail ring that will make a maximum impact. Whether worn as a statement piece for a special occasion or as an everyday accessory, a diamond cocktail ring adds charm and allure to your look.

We love this Radiant Diamond Fashion Ring, featuring a pattern of stunning round brilliant cut diamonds set in 18k yellow gold.

Diamond Engagement Ring

Make it an April birthday to remember with the ultimate symbol of love and commitment—a diamond engagement ring. Whether you prefer a classic solitaire setting or a more elaborate design featuring pave or halo accents, a diamond engagement ring is a timeless expression of everlasting love and devotion.
