Sparkling Love: The History of Diamonds and Valentine’s Day

As Valentine’s Day approaches, love is in the air, and what better way to express your eternal affection than with the timeless brilliance of diamonds? In this blog, we will embark on a journey through the fascinating history of diamonds and explore the exquisite designs crafted by renowned diamond designers at Meridian Jewelers, including Phillips House, Norman Silverman, Kwiat, and Rahaminov Diamonds.

The Ancient Charm of Diamonds:

Diamonds have captured the hearts of humans for centuries, dating back to ancient times. The word “diamond” itself is derived from the Greek word “adamas,” meaning invincible or indestructible, highlighting the enduring nature of these precious gems. In ancient civilizations, diamonds were believed to possess mystical powers, symbolizing strength, purity, and everlasting love.

While diamonds gained popularity as symbols of wealth and power in royal courts, it was not until the 20th century that they became synonymous with love and commitment. The De Beers marketing campaign, launched in the mid-20th century, famously declared, “A Diamond Is Forever,” solidifying the diamond’s association with eternal love and marriage.
