Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, or so we’d led to believe. When that quote first became popular, it was a different time - we’re talking over fifty years ago - the world was a completely different place. Women were purely homemakers and mothers who waited at home for their husbands - it was a different time, and the world was a totally different place.
Despite the fact that the world has changed a lot in the past fifty years or so, us girls still love diamonds. For generations, those bright, glitzy, sparkling stones have captured our hearts, drawing us into a lifelong love affair. But what is it about diamonds that we love - what is it that makes them the perfect timeless accessory? Why do we lust over diamonds when there are so many other beautiful gemstones to choose from?
