When the time comes to shop for an engagement ring, you’re beyond excited. You’ve been waiting for this moment your entire life and can’t wait to marry your best friend. After sifting through countless websites, imagining different rings on your finger, and trying to understand the “Four C’s,” your excitement starts to wear thin. Suddenly you’re overwhelmed. It’s hard to understand the different types of diamonds, what it means, and what kind you actually want.
There are a lot of choices to choose from and all of the choices can leave you feeling exhausted. But the truth is that the most important choice of all is the diamond. When it comes to marriage and commitment, diamonds represent something important: commitment, love, and respect. Wearing a diamond ring on your finger symbolizes that you honor the commitment of marriage and each other. (Tweet) There are a lot of choices out there, but the most important choice of all is the diamond. Here’s why it matters:
Diamonds are known as symbols of many different traits: love, affection, and commitment. But perhaps the most important trait of all is strength. Diamonds are known as the strongest and most durable stone. With a hardness of ten on the Mohs scale of chemical hardness, it’s easy to see why the stone is known for its durability. Not only does that bode well for the longevity of your engagement ring, but it also serves as a reminder that your union is for life. Even beyond that, the only thing that can scratch a diamond is another diamond. It’s almost impossible to damage a diamond and that serves as a symbol that it’s impossible to damage the bond between you and your spouse as well.
2. FOREVER AFTER
When you choose a diamond engagement ring, you are committing to “ever after.” The word “diamond” comes from a Greek word that means “unbreakable.” Your diamond is unbreakable and so is your bond. With a diamond on your finger, you are committed to an unbreakable partnership. No matter what happens, you and your partner are for life. Luckily, your diamond is as well.
3. THE START OF SOMETHING NEW
Diamonds are the birthstone for April. In the same way spring symbolizes the start of a new season and new life, diamonds symbolize the start of a new bond. When you and your spouse join together in union, you begin a new life as a team. It is a new beginning for you and your partner. With its clean, crisp appearance and neutral color, diamonds symbolize a fresh start as well. Your marriage is the start of something new…the best years of your life.
Diamonds take thousands and even millions of years to form. By the time it is set in your engagement ring, your diamond has been quietly growing to its current state of beauty for years. The truth is that all good things take time and the same is true for marriage. It takes time to build an unbreakable bond with your spouse and even beyond that, it takes time to build a life together. Diamond engagement rings serve as a reminder that all great things take time. Luckily, the best things in life are worth the wait, and we think that diamonds and marriage are more than worth it. Ultimately, diamonds symbolize longevity, love and commitment and there’s no better way to say, “I do” than with a diamond ring.
