Coloring Your World With Diamonds

Our daughter’s sweet sixteen was coming up and my wife and I were stressing over what would be the signature gift. Along with typical birthday gifts, we wanted to find something special that she could keep forever and remind her of this day. We knew we wanted it to be some piece of fine jewelry, but that was the problem: how to find a piece of jewelry that was truly unique?

My wife came home one night from work very excited, but waited until after the kids went to bed to tell me what she had found. She stopped at the local jewelry store on her way home from work, just seeing if there was any inspiration among all of the diamond jewelry. We had discussed that something like a diamond pendant or maybe a diamond bracelet would be a good option, but we were having trouble finding one that we thought captured our daughter’s personality the best. While she was looking, one of the helpful sales associates approached her and struck up a conversation. When my wife told the young lady what our dilemma was, she brought my wife down to a display case we had somehow missed in our previous visits.

 

This case was filled with all sorts of colored diamond jewelry. Not only was there a full selection of diamond earrings, necklaces and bracelets, but all of the diamonds had color in them. Before my wife could even begin to get skeptical, the woman explained that all of the coloring happened naturally while the diamonds were forming. My wife said that when you looked closely, you could see that even all of the pink diamonds – the color she knew would be best – were slightly different from each other.

 

We went back that weekend and sure enough, I could see the slight variation from diamond to diamond, but within each diamond, the color was almost flawless. We settled on a beautiful pink colored diamond pendant. At the party, my daughter was blown away and almost in tears when she thanked us. That night, as we were all going to bed, she came into our room and thanked us again. And she was already wearing the pendant.

Finding some sales should be very easy, especially if you get an early start on your shopping! There will be many Christmas jewelry specials going on in jewelry stores all over your town. The best time to begin your shopping is right after Thanksgiving. Black Friday has turned into an absolute madhouse that starts on Thanksgiving Day instead of Friday. This is a heated debate topic among retail stores and their employees. No one wants to work on Thanksgiving Day because they should be spending time with their loved ones instead. However, now this is the biggest day ever for retail stores all over the United States. These huge chains can find employees to work since people are anxious to save up money for the holidays.

Loose diamonds are formed deep within the earth by Mother Nature herself. These beautiful rocks endure some pretty extreme conditions before being thrust toward the earth’s surface via volcanic eruption. It is hard to believe something so gorgeous can be the result of such treacherous conditions. Extreme heat and pressure no living being could ever withstand are to be credited with the formation of these stones. Carbon atoms form very cohesive bonds when exposed to these conditions. Their intricate lattice bonds make them the hardest naturally formed material on the earth. The atoms for a protective layer around them and are called rough loose diamonds. It isn’t until a professional diamond cutter gets his or her hands on the rough diamond that the stone becomes cut and polished to sparkle in all of its beauty. Then the diamonds are sold to distributors who will, in turn, sell them to you and me.

Now that you know how the loose diamonds are formed in the earth, we will now explore how these stones become colorful. Most people prefer white diamonds. A perfectly white diamond is colorless. Flawless and colorless diamonds are extremely rare and boast an expensive price tag. Most of the white diamonds you see on your friends’ jewelry and in the jewelry store has some tint of brown or yellow even if you cannot see it with your own two eyes. Essentially, colored diamonds are flawed diamonds and are not as valuable as their colorless counterparts. However, when it comes to loose diamonds, it all depends on your personal taste.

The color of a diamond is determined during the formation process when the diamond is deep under our feet. For example, if the carbon atoms are exposed to boron during the formation process, these loose diamonds will take on a blue tint. Depending on the levels of boron, the diamond will be very blue, barely blue and everything in between. Another example is a black diamond. These diamonds are not typically black the entire way through. The reason they are black is because of the many imperfections within the stone.
