Diamond is a solid form of the element carbon. It is the hardest naturally occurring substance known and is one of the most sought-after of all the gemstones.
Historically diamonds were thought to be an antidote to poison and provide protection from the plague, they brought clarity to the wearer and increased positive energy, it was also considered a healing stone for Aries. Some claim it increases longevity, strength, beauty and happiness!
As well as being the most popular choice for engagement rings, diamonds are the traditional gift for 60th and 75th wedding anniversaries.
White Topaz, which we use in our birthstone charms, comes from the mineral aluminum beryllium silicate, it is not as hard as diamonds but it does make an affordable alternative.
Historically White Topaz was seen as a stone of clarity and purity, helping to clear your mind before making important decisions. It was thought to help you get rid of negative thoughts and remain calm during stressful times.
