Diamond Symbolism - Heart In Diamond

Diamonds have been assigned a number of unique meanings and symbolisms over the years, and any or all of these may be special to you depending on why you are purchasing your diamond and who you are purchasing it for.  Back in ancient times, they were usually seen as bearing some connection to divinity.  They also came to be viewed as a symbol of courage and power.  Their most famous purpose--as symbols of romantic love--rose to great popularity in the 19th and 20th centuries, but had existed among royalty for many centuries before that.  Due to their unique chemical composition (diamonds are composed of 100% pure carbon) they are also viewed by some as symbols of innocence, purity, and grace.
