Diamonds a’plenty!!

Posted May 16 2017, 3:18 pm


Ahh yes…the DIAMOND — so full of sparkle & fire. And as we all know, these days, diamonds serve as a reflection of everlasting love. But THAT concept…the diamond engagement/wedding connection…was actually ‘created’ back in the 1930s by advertising executives to sell their overstock of diamond stones.

In ancient times, the diamond’s primary function, & the very reason one adorned themselves with said stone, was to ward off insanity with its bright & dynamic karat-charged powers. In fact, the word DIAMOND literally translates to “vajra” or “lighting” in Sanskrit [lightning being the choice weapon of the Gods].

Oh, & for the record, diamond tiaras should NOT be confused with crowns. “Anyone can wear a tiara, assuming it’s the right occasion.

Crowns, however, connote state power,” pointed out royals expert Arianne Chernock, an associate professor of history at Boston University. But, I’ll save that tiara/crown significance for another lil’ historical snippet.  

 

Nonetheless, when we slip on that diamond ring, or settle diamond studs in our ears, we can now know we’re channeling our powerful ‘vaira’ … ’cause after all, diamonds ARE a girl’s best friend…& there’s no madness about that delightful truth. HA!
