-"Diamonds are a girl’s best friend"-

The beauty and mystery of gemstones have fascinated us for thousands of years. Precious jewels are forged, using rare and beautiful stones, as symbols of riches, power and love.

Named in the 14th century after the Greek word adamas, meaning invincible, diamonds are considered the hardest substance on earth. In ancient times it was given to ensure love, promote harmony and dispel anger. In Greek mythology, Eros, the god of erotic love, is said to have used arrows tipped with diamonds to stimulate people to fall in love with one another. Today, not much has changed, and diamonds are often viewed as a symbol of innocence.
