April Birthstone - Diamond
Probably the most well-known of all the gemstones is the birthstone for April – the diamond. Shirley Bassey said that they were forever and Marilyn Monroe sang about how they're a girl’s best friend. (True?) Anyway, we think Shirley might be more on the money than she realised with the word ‘diamond’ coming from the Greek for ‘invincible’.
True to it's name, the birthstone supposedly passes on strength to the wearer and this is magnified during the month of April. Also believed to provide healing powers to ensure full strength – if heated and taken to bed, it will draw out toxins. More reason to get the bling out?
We love diamonds of all colours here at Lee Renee (it's also Lee's birthstone, so don't tell the others but its her favourite too!) April is a fantastic time to get your diamonds on and feel the strength and beauty that reflects in each sparkle.
We have a few pieces below that already feature the beautiful Diamond, but as our jewellery is handmade to order, all our gem-set pieces can be custom made for you with a diamond instead of whatever stone is currently in place- just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your bespoke request.
