Ancient Diamonds

30 June 2015 / Blog

Diamonds were first discovered nearly six thousand years ago in ancient India. They have been treasured for their beauty and their remarkable properties ever since.  In Greece, for example, some scientists claimed that diamonds were pieces of the stars that had fallen to the earth—though legend had it that diamonds were actually the teardrops of the gods.  In ancient India, diamonds were valued as religious icons.  In the dark ages, it was believed that swallowing diamonds could cure illness.  Finally, in 1074 A.D. the queen of Hungary began to use a crown featuring a diamond—the first documented instance of diamonds being worn as jewelry.
