      Diamonds signify enduring love because of their unmatched strength and beauty. The versatile look of diamonds enables them to be worn with any outfit, from an elegant cocktail dress to jeans. Diamond engagement rings are the most popular accompaniment to popping the question.


      Although the tradition of giving a ring to the woman who has promised to become your bride goes back centuries, diamond engagement rings are a relatively recent innovation. Diamond engagement rings first became popular in the 1930s.

      A man presents his prospective bride with an engagement ring upon acceptance of her marriage proposal. Anthropologists believe this tradition originated from a Roman custom in which wives wore rings attached to small keys, indicating their husbands' ownership. In 1477, Archduke Maximillian of Austria commissioned the very first diamond engagement ring on record for his betrothed, Mary of Burgundy. This sparked a trend for diamond rings among European aristocracy and nobility.

      The sentimental Victorians popularized ornate engagement ring designs that mixed diamonds with other gemstones, precious metals and enamels. Often these rings were crafted in the shapes of flowers and were dubbed “posey rings.” Diamond rings crafted during the Edwardian era continued the tradition of pairing diamonds with other jewels, commonly mounted in filigree settings.



    • Women who hate their engagement ring.

      Prince William and KateYour engagement ring is likely to be the most important piece of jewelry you'll ever wear (aside from your wedding ring, of course). Not only will you wear it every day, it's a symbol of your commitment to your relationship. It is a very sweet and romantic for your fiancés to give you his mum or his grandmother’s engagement or wedding ring. It is nice to keep diamonds in family and pass down family air looms.

      But



      Statics according to Cosmopolitan magazine has shown that 57% of women do like their engagement rings.  Many are not thrilled to be getting a second hand ring or a ‘hand me down’ regardless of the symbolic meaning behind the ring and also behind the proposal. It is very common to pass down family heir looms and it keeps the diamonds within the family and creates traditions. Prince William gave Kate Middleton his late mothers’ 18ct sapphire ring. Ross McCall gave his fiances his grandmother engagement ring which has stayed in the family for over a century. These two men are definitely traditionalists.



      While some women do still believe in this romantic gesture, they also believe they should have their own ring.


      Tastes and fashion are always evolving and now we are in the 21st century many women want to be unique, they do not want to have the same as everyone else.  Yale Zoland, president of Leon Zoland & Sons in New York, has said she has seen an increase in women coming into her jewelers and asking if they can take the diamonds out of their engagement ring and re-make them a new one.  This is a compromise and also something which Diamonds Direct Ireland can offer you. They can replicate any ring and also alter any ring for you to create the special, unique, bespoke ring.

    • Songs Inspired By Diamonds

       

      The Three Most Heard Songs About #Dimonds and Songs Inspired By Diamonds

      In songs, diamonds are  to be taken literally (i.e., the singer really is singing about diamonds) or intended as a metaphor (i.e., someone or something is likened to the value or stature of a coveted diamond).

      Diamonds can represent the love that two people have. Their love and the diamond are intertwined. The Diamond is a physical object of the love that is felt between two people.

      Marilyn Monroe

      According to Marilyn in this song, Diamonds do not lose their shape even as women grow old and lose their allure. Measured against nearly every conceivable situation in a woman’s life, diamonds will always triumph.

      Diamonds are a girl’s best friend

      James Bond

      Shirley Bassey emphasis that Diamonds are forever; they are always there they will not leave you. You can always rely on them unlike men. Men are immortal to diamonds; women do not need love when they have diamonds.

      Diamonds are forever

      Rihanna

       

      Rihanna describes Diamonds  to be apart of your personality in the song, ‘shine bright like a diamond.’  By wearing the diamond you feel empowered and strong. The diamond connects you and your loved one, by wearing the diamond it is close to you and therefore you are close to your loved one. ‘We are like a diamond in the sky’.

      To most people, the classic diamond is a round gem of sparkling white brilliance with a kaleidoscope of dazzling facets to entice the eye. Do we agree? Yes and no:

       

      Diamonds are natural crystals of varying size and shape formed in the earth over millions of years. The traditional round brilliant diamond, though the most popular diamond shape of all, is hardly the whole story.

       

      By the diamond cutter's art these crystals are carved into gems of spectacular and whimsical beauty. A cutter's skill will produce a diamond of the greatest size with the fewest flaws and the most brilliance.

      You will find a full guide of all the diamond shapes available along with tips for which cuts will suit your finger/hand shape over the next while....
