Diamond, the most desirable and valuable of gemstones, was chosen as the birthstone of April and had its name derived from the Greek word ‘Adamas,’ meaning ‘unbreakable’ or invincible.’
The diamond was chosen as a gift for the 60th and 75th wedding anniversaries and even today, a diamond engagement ring has become a near-universal symbol of love and marriage.
Compared to the rest of the gemstones, diamonds are the most durable of them and is only susceptible to damage against another diamond, therefore they can be placed under an ultrasonic
cleaner for cleaning. However, if a diamond has many inclusions or has been treated previously, it is best to clean it with a lint free cloth. If not some warm water, dish soap, and a toothbrush
for scrubbing will suffice. (Source: GIA)
