Lucky you—you have an April Birthday and the diamond is your birthstone! The diamond represents purity and perfection, and symbolizes eternal love. They say the tradition of birthstones originated with the breastplate of Aaron, which was decorated with 12 gemstones representing the 12 Tribes of Israel. These evolved into our birthstone tradition. The birthstone dilemma is that you may not be particularly fond of the stone that represents the month of your birth. Don’t worry—here at Mervis Diamond you can declare the diamond your birthstone of choice! And as always, our trained Diamond Consultants will be happy to assist you with finding just the right piece of diamond jewelry for you or that special someone!
