Kay Jewelers offers insight into what different jewels mean
Choosing a piece of jewelry can be a big purchasing decision, so Kay Jewelers has provided their shoppers with some help with a guide to what different birthstones mean on their website.
We've got some of the meaning they picked out for diamonds, as they also apply to the Kay Jewelers engagement rings, one of their most popular items for sale.
Here are a few things that diamonds mean:
The word "diamond" comes from the Greek work for unconquerable ("adamas"). The Greeks put them on their shields to bring them powers of invincibility wen they went into war.
Diamonds are considered the "king gem." They supposedly ward off evil spirits and nightmares, as well as making any poison harmless.
Cupid's arrows had a diamond on the tip with special magical powers, and Hindus in ancient times thought diamonds came from bolts of lightning.
