April's birthstone is the diamond. Treasured for its exceptional hardness and purity of color, the diamond, while not the rarest, is still one of the most sought-out of the gemstones.
The name ‘diamond’ came from the Greek word ‘adamas’ meaning ‘unconquerable; indestructible.’ A natural diamond takes billions of years to form. While there are other factors to consider, diamond is generally considered the more expensive gemstone compared to other gemstones.
Cutting a diamond requires knowledge and craftsmanship because of its extreme difficulty. Here at Suzy Levian we are very meticulous about the process, since we want each piece to be perfectly finished. Only one in a million rough diamonds are large enough to produce a one-carat diamond. Today, the ‘Golden Jubilee’ holds the title of being the largest cut diamond in the world. The 755-carat rough stone was cut and polished by Gabriel Tolkowsky. It took him two years to design the world’s largest cut diamond. The diamond was named ‘Golden Jubilee’ because it was sent as a gift to the King of Thailand for his 50th Coronation Anniversary in 1997. Aside from being a symbol of love, diamond also symbolizes strength, perseverance, courage, elegance, and luxury.
