Diamond is the birthstone for April…and boy are there options for you April babies!!!
Diamonds, the birthstone for the month of April, must make those born in the month feel pretty good. They get the most elegant gorgeous stone. In my opinion, diamonds are perfect for every occasion, varying in size, color and shape. You could wear anything with them because of their wide variety. What I love most about diamonds is the way they can make you feel. They are like high heels, once you put them on you feel a little better than you did before.
Diamond is one of the hardest substances known to man. Every diamond widely differs in value. When choosing a diamond there are four things to look at; the four C’s: Cut, Color, Clarity and Carat weight.
The cut refers to not only the shape but also the proportions of how the diamond was actually cut. A diamonds overall shape, size and placement will play a large role in “cut”. Diamonds are cut into many different shapes, the most popular being round, oval, square, princess, emerald, and marquise.
For color, the most valuable diamonds are those with the least color. Completely colorless diamonds are extremely rare.
Clarity is measured by the existence or absence of visible flaws. Surface blemishes or internal inclusions, even the ones that can only be seen under magnification with a 10X, can alter the brilliance of the diamond and in turn, its value.
The size of a diamond is measured instead of by dimensions, by weight. One carat, the traditional unit of measurement for diamonds, is equal to about 0.2 grams. Diamonds of the same weights may look slightly different in size, depending on their depth and proportions.
These 5 pieces are featuring the different shapes, sizes and colors that can be found in diamonds.
With a gorgeous design on this ring, it features brilliantly round cut diamonds. This is a wonderful ring, a perfect gift. Because of the design, it is a more casual looking ring that could be worn everyday.
This ring, in the marquise shape detailed with small black round cut diamonds and round cut diamonds, having a total carat weight of .61. It is a different looking ring with the black diamonds outlining the ring.
This diamond necklace is perfect if you are looking for a gift. So gorgeous with the round diamonds giving it a flower look. This is something that can be worn anywhere with anything, just to dress things up a bit. Having a total carat weight of 0.55.
Diamond studs are always the best, they are small so not too noticeable but if you put your hair up or half back, they gives you a little glamour. These earrings have 0.45 total carat weights. The diamond crowns give these earrings more of a sparkle than a regular pair of diamond studs.
These hoops are fabulous because they are small and easy to wear. They do not hang down very far so they aren’t super blingy and can be worn with many different things. They will dress up a plain outfit.
Enjoy my April babies!!!
