And not just because the fabulous Marylin Monroe says so!

Diamonds are the birthstone for the month of April, meaning that April-born ladies and gents have an extra reason to ask for gifts of sparkling diamond jewellery (or buy diamonds for themselves).

But for those of us not lucky enough to be born in April, diamonds continue to be a popular choice for our engagement rings or jewellery. The reasons for this are plentiful and not just because diamonds are one of the most aesthetically pleasing gemstones.

Diamonds also.....

  • Constantly catch the eye as they disperse light in the most incredible way.

  • They are colour stable, which means that what you see is what you get. They will not change colour over time, like some other gems.

  • White diamonds compliment almost every other colour gemstone, bringing brightness and sparkle to a piece.

  • Did we mention diamonds are the hardest wearing gemstone? This means that their edges will continue to stay crisp, just like the day you bought them.

Although most people think diamonds are colourless e.g. white, diamonds are available in a wide range of colours including yellow, pink, blue, green, red and even black.

At DesignYard, we love talking and sharing our expert diamond knowledge, especially Ronan Campbell, our in-house Diamond Expert. He has spent over 20 years sourcing diamonds and gems from around the world. So if you need to know anything diamond or gemstone related, he's your guy.

If you would like to know more about diamonds and see our specially curated collection of diamond engagement rings and jewellery, feel free to pop in to our gallery at 25 South Frederick Street, Dublin 2 anytime. Or book an appointment via email with one of our knowledgable staff or with Ronan himself.

We have a feeling diamonds might soon become your best friend too!
