If someone is lucky enough to have an April birthday, congratulations you won the birthstone lottery. Your birthstone is none other than a diamond.
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. However, the modern list of birthstones was standardized by the Jewelers of America in the United States in 1912, and this list has been widely adopted around the world. 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. The word "diamond" is derived from the Greek word "adamas," meaning invincible, which reflects the diamond's extreme hardness and durability. As such, diamonds have been historically viewed as a symbol of strength and invincibility. Diamonds are also often associated with love and commitment, making them a popular choice to represent the love and the enduring bonds between people.
