How did diamonds become the birthstone for April?

The tradition of birthstones dates back to ancient times, but the specific origins of assigning a diamond as the birthstone for April are not entirely clear.

According to this modern list, the diamond was assigned as the birthstone for April.

What is the meaning of April's birthstone?

The diamond, April's birthstone, is often associated with love, strength, and invincibility.
