An introduction from our Senior Diamond Buyer
Diamond Buyer's Guide
When it comes to expressing emotions, no gem says it more powerfully than a diamond. The tradition of a man giving a woman a diamond ring as a promise of marriage began in the Middle Ages, when the Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I gave Mary of Burgundy a gold ring set with a diamond as a token of love. Today, diamond jewellery is used to celebrate other occasions, such as anniversaries, the birth of a child, or simply 'just because'.
