Diamond, the King of Gemstones

Due to the belief that genuine diamonds possess the special properties that do not appear in other types of gemstones, for diamond is considered to be the strongest mineral according to Moh’s scale (1). Besides, its sparkle is the result of the carbon crystal arrangement in octahedron shape, like 2 pyramids joining together (2). Another special quality of diamond is its numerous colors since there are pure white diamonds as well as the fancy color ones. These properties together make diamonds the unique gemstone.

However, in the present time, most people are interested in round shape diamonds (3)(4); consequently, if you are thinking of investing in diamonds, round shape diamonds seem to be the best choice. For cutting, I would advise you to select the diamonds that are cut by the skillful craftsmen, since diamonds with excellent cutting will reflect the light and give out glittering shine; this kind of diamond is worth an investment.
