I am April

Updated: Sep 11

Those born in April would likely agree - Diamond needs no introduction.


Included in the Birthstone Wall Art Collection, the iconic gemstone is April’s official and modern birthstone. Officially listed as a gemstone in 1912, diamond is also the traditional 60th anniversary gift (sometimes given on the 10th and 75th).


Admired for centuries, diamonds were said to have been traded as early as 4 BC, according to some historians.

Deepest Interior of a Diamond

Symbolizing exquisite beauty, purity, enduring love, and royalty, April’s birthstone gets its name from the Greek word “adamas”, meaning “unbreakable” or “invincible”.


This complements the diamond’s unyielding physical form. It’s the hardest, most durable substance known to man.


Made from one, single element - carbon - diamond is 58 times harder than anything found in nature (10 on the Mohs hardness scale). Therefore, the only object that can cut a diamond is another diamond.


The gemstone’s interior structure is just as breathtaking as its exterior. If you’re a non-believer, take a moment to check out the “I am April” wall art. It’ll surely change your mind.


A timeless charm, diamond, in nature, can be found in various colors and shades. As well, they can be opaque, translucent, and transparent.

Although white diamonds are the most recognizable, they exist in yellow, blue, brown, green, violet, gray, pink, red, black, and orange; the rarest being green, blue, and red.


Beyond its beauty, diamond has a rich history of folklore regarding its powerful healing and protective properties.


Prior to the discovery of how diamonds were formed, some ancient civilizations thought diamonds were formed by lightning, while others believed they were God’s tears.


During the Middle Ages, it was declared that diamonds could treat and cure fatigue, mental illness, glaucoma, brain disease, and kidney stones, as well as remove poisonous toxins from blood.


Referring to diamond as the “love” stone, the Romans concluded that the tips of Cupid's arrows were set in diamonds, enabling them to penetrate the heart of the most stubborn lovers.
