Diamonds are traditionally gifted to romantic partners, either as part of an engagement proposal or as a special gift. Diamonds are luxurious and represent both love and respect from the one giving the diamond. This isn’t just limited to romantic partners either. There’s nothing stopping you from gifting loose diamonds or diamond jewellery to a close friend or family member.
Diamonds and diamond jewellery aren’t something you usually buy for yourself. Instead, it’s a wearable gift that has a special sentimental value. Perhaps it is because diamond jewellery represents monumental periods in people’s lives such as engagements, weddings, births and graduations.
