Diamond - the April birthstone - was first known to originate from India, where they were gathered from the country’s rivers and streams. It’s thought this stunning gem was traded as early as the fourth century BCE. Years later, exotic Indian merchandise - including diamonds - were brought to the medieval Venetian markets. By the 1400’s, diamonds were the preferred accessory of Europe’s royalty and elite. Soon the whole world caught on.
The post-war economy boom in the 1950s saw a love affair with diamonds. Diamond company De Beers’ iconic “Diamonds are Forever” campaign created an aspirational buzz which the movie Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, starring Marilyn Monroe, exacerbated with the infamous “diamonds are a girl’s best friend” musical number.
