GEM STONE ENGAGEMENT RING: THE DIAMOND IS KING…OR RATHER, QUEEN
There are very good reasons that diamonds are most popular for a gem stone engagement ring. They symbolize longevity, strength, purity and beauty. Diamonds are a remarkable result of geology and chemistry, cooking in the intense heat and pressure of the earth for hundreds of millions of years. And therein lies a big part of their attraction. It takes an awfully long time to turn a black, dusty lump of coal into a perfectly clear, sparkling diamond. The process itself results in the diamond’s unprecedented hardness and crystal stability. A diamond therefore is the perfect symbol of longevity – the longevity of your love for the woman who receives this remarkable and rare gift. Give her a diamond gem stone engagement ring, and you’re telling her you want her forever.
