					A specialized crystalline structure of carbon that is arranged in a variation of the face
centered cubic on an elemental level is the primary and most basic definition of a
diamond. Its name actually comes from the ancient Greek word for 鈥渦 nbreakable,
鈥?and many aspects of the diamond link closely to that name since the diamond is
the hardest natural material currently known to man according to scientific gradation
called Moh 鈥檚 scale of hardness where hardness is defined by a material 鈥檚
resistance to scratching. 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 object with these special attributes) has made the diamond the king
of all 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 crystal make it the ideal choice for
jewelry and mankind has been exploiting them for adornments ever since diamond
mineral deposits were first discovered. Fine jewelry in general has had a long standing
link to diamond jewelry and the two phrases are swapped often because of the
preference modern humans show to diamonds. Jewelry stores across the globe would
be considered ill prepared, crazy, or even not a fine jewelry seller at all if they did not
stock some type of diamond jewelry in their lovely glass cases.
  Diamonds are an incredibly versatile gemstone in general though. Their shimmering,
natural crystal clear color looks great 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. Diamond necklaces are a
classic way to wear this ancient mineral. Diamond wreath necklaces in particular are
the height of elegance (and generally of price as well) since they feature a long chain
of connected diamonds made to totally encircle the wearer 鈥檚 neck and add
magnificent shine to an entire room. For those who wish to wear diamonds but are not
the heirs to a massive fortune or business tycoons, diamond pendants are the perfect
choice since they allow for the gentle shine of diamonds around your neck but
contained in a specified area that is delicately hung on a stylish chain of metal that
matches the precious metal of the pendant 鈥檚 setting.
  Diamond earrings are also a very classy addition to anyone 鈥檚 jewelry box. They
can be a long, chandelier type of earring or the timeless diamond studs that look great
with anything at any occasion. Diamond rings though are the tried and true way to
wear diamonds in the modern world. Diamond eternity rings that are basically a
simple circular band in any precious metal that is covered in a line of diamonds are a
wonderful way to show your eternal bond to someone. Yet, the greatest bond shown
by the gift of diamonds has to be the engagement ring given in a proposal to your true
love. Diamond engagement rings are always in style and probably always will be an
elegant way to propose to your bride to be.
