- Everything has Meaning

- A Girl’s Best Friend
Marilyn Monroe is famous for singing a song with the lyrics, “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend” and she could not be any more right.

If you are looking to show her how much you get her – assuming she is not part of the remaining 10% – with a diamond ring, you are sure to impress her.
- Tears of the gods
In the old days, the Greeks and Romans perceived diamonds as tears of the gods.
The Romans, in particular, believed that Cupid’s arrow contained a speck of diamond on their tips – a lovely fact for charming your special someone.
Other stories from the Greeks and Romans suggest that diamonds are splinters from falling stars. Perhaps it was wishful thinking, but the ancient Greeks and Romans were onto something, because
- The Sky full of Diamonds
In 2004, scientists discovered an actual planet (55 Cancri e), orbiting a star (55 Cancri A) in the Cancer constellation, with one-third composed of pure diamonds.
If that is not mind-blowing, scientists have also come across a white dwarf star with a diamond core. They called it Lucy, after the Beatles’ song “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds”. The star is 10 billion trillion carats and is the largest diamond we know about so far – promise her you’ll take her there someday.
Furthermore, maybe the Greeks and Romans were either psychic or pure geniuses because they are not the only ones who believe diamonds are actually of alien origin. Mostly discovered in South America and Africa, Carbonado diamonds are so strange that diamond experts believe they were deposited on earth by an asteroid that hit the planet nearly three billion years ago. Albeit you won’t necessarily find them on wedding rings, carbonado diamonds are great for polishing into a black diamond.

- Her True Worth?
In Sydney, most men spend around A$3400 – around two month’s salary – on a diamond ring. The price of a diamond ring is determined by the size of the stone, its cut, the metal, purity, clarity, shape, and color.
As far as the shape of the diamond is concerned, most people go for the “round cut diamond”. For the sake of variety, others go for “the princess cut”.
The most commonly used metal for diamond is platinum, followed by white gold.
The color of a pure diamond usually ranges from a pale yellow to crystal clear. However, various impurities produce colors that are more interesting for those willing to sacrifice a bit of purity for uniqueness. With impurities, you can get colors like green, blue, red, brown, black, orange or pink.
How much are you willing to sacrifice to show her how deep your love is?
I hope these few fun facts were romantic enough to inspire you into buying the ideal diamond ring for your only true love.
