● A diamond in the rough: a good person who lacks traditional manners or social skills.
● Diamonds are a girl’s best friend: a phrase first written for Broadway and later popularized to an enormous extent through none other than Marilyn Monroe in the movie Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.
● A diamond is forever. One of the most effective marketing campaigns for diamonds centered around this phrase, which drew a metaphor between the indestructibility of diamonds and the eternal nature of true love.
