A specialized crystalline structure of base Earth elements which forms diamonds has always been special to mankind. Its name actually comes from the ancient Greek word that means “unbreakable,” and many aspects of the diamond associate closely to that original name as the diamond is the hardest naturally occurring mineral currently known to humans. The rarity of natural diamonds and their rather unique properties, particularly in the eyes of the ancient world when mankind had yet to create items and other objects with these special attributes, has made the diamond the ruler of all the natural gemstones. In addition to being incredibly rare and difficult to find, diamonds once they have been processed and shaped have the tendency to be breathtakingly beautiful. All of these qualities of this relatively simple carbon-based shimmering stone make it the perfect selection for jewelry and mankind has been exploiting them for adornments ever since diamond mineral deposits were first discovered. High class fine jewelry in general has had a long standing link to diamond jewelry and represents the best of true fashion within the jewelry realm.
Diamonds are an incredibly versatile gemstone in general though. Their shimmering, naturally white coloring looks amazing on many parts of the human body for special bejeweled adornment and their special elemental structure allows them to be shaped in a variety of ways to create cuts for many metallic settings such as white gold, yellow gold, platinum, palladium, and 14k rose gold. Diamond necklaces, bracelets, and even earrings are great places to look when you want to add more prestige to your jewelry collection. However, diamond rings though are the tried and true way to wear diamonds in modern fashions. Halo diamond engagement rings which are basically a simple large center stone encircled by smaller stones to make the centerpiece look even brighter and bigger are a wonderful way to show your eternal bond to someone. The centerpiece diamond can come in a variety of shapes but they look best with simple cuts like circular or square so that the ultimate goal of a large looking center diamond can more easily be achieved. Halo engagement rings are always in fashion as some vintage and antique rings can even be found with this particular design. This means that engagement rings with halo diamonds (which look best with 18k gold) will probably always be an elegant way to propose to your bride to be.
