April’s Birthstone : The Diamond

“Diamonds are a girls best friend”

“Diamonds are a girls best friend”

It is ever so fittingly fabulous that the Diamond is the birthstone for April! Every female has become mesmerized by the dazzling rainbow hues reflected in a perfectly cut diamond. Now we can all don this beautiful gem, which is surrounded by romance, mystery, and passion.
Born from a Greek love story , it is a symbol of  everlasting love. With that Archduke Maximilian of Austria proposed  to his love with a diamond and so the fairy tale romance of the diamond ring began.

Personally this birth stone reminds me of the glamour of vintage Hollywood. With inspiration from Marilyn Monroe and Breakfast at Tiffany’s here is a peek into creating a modern ensemble based around the Diamond.

“She who from April dates her years,
Diamonds shall wear, lest bitter tears
For vain repentance flow; this stone,
Emblem of innocence, is known.”

Quoted from the Gregorian Calendar, which matches poems for each month with its birthstone.
