Becoming Engaged / Inspiration

The diamond has been the traditional symbol of love since the Middle Ages. The very word 'diamond' comes from the Greek "adamas" meaning unconquerable – suggesting that the fire in a diamond reflects the constant flame of love.

While the traditional white diamond solitaire is still a popular choice, coloured stones are now a hot favourite. Blue and pink sapphires, emeralds, rubies, tourmaline, garnets and amethysts are just some of the coloured stones adding a sparkling rainbow to many a girl's left hand. And, black diamond engagement rings have become a popular choice around the globe.
