Its dazzling beauty is only one part why it is so coveted -- as one of the hardest materials in the world, it is also a tough cookie that will not scratch and is assured to last a lifetime.
Here are some diamond jewellery if you're looking to add some sparkle to an April baby's birthday.
Harry Winston Secret Cluster bracelet
This masterpiece cleverly arranges a mix of round, pear and marquise shaped diamonds in a seemingly random design but the varying angles serve a purpose -- to capture as much light as possible to maximise sparkle. An exquisite emerald discreetly hides under the cluster of diamonds as a peekaboo surprise for the unsuspecting.
Cartier Diamants Legers de Cartier necklace
Cartier chose to set the diamonds in loose chains for this necklace, letting the diamonds seemingly "free-fall" from the clasp for ample movement to complement the brilliant shine. As a result, the diamonds catch the eye in the most unexpected moments with subtle winks everytime they catch light.
Piaget Posession earrings
Piaget depicts romance with these earrings made of two inseparable circles. The first circle has a diamond heart which it protects with the word 'Possession' engraved, while the second, with its full circle set with diamonds, is symbolic of the perfect seal for this story of passionate romance.
Van Cleef & Arpels Between the Finger ring
Shiny and innovative, this ring features a nifty bit of engineering that lets you wear is as a regular ring or "unfold" it to adorn a few fingers. In doing so, the flower seems to "bloom" from its white-gold vine, and spreads its brilliant sparkle across your hand.
Bulgari Diva's Dream bracelet
The dazzle of the diamonds in this bracelet is intensified by contrasting it against sleek black onyx. The geometry in design gives it a modern touch whilst the classic colours of black and white renders it timeless for a bracelet that is elegant as it is versatile.
