According to the Gemologists Institute of America, “The world’s love of diamonds had its start in India, where diamonds were gathered from the country’s rivers and streams. Some historians estimate that India was trading in diamonds as early as the fourth century BC.” Diamond engagement rings, however, are a more recent innovation. They first became popular in the 1930’s and by 1965, 80% of all new brides in the USA sported one!
Recently, I was introduced to a new source for diamond engagement rings, wedding sets, eternity bands and wedding bands.
Beverly Diamonds offers a huge array of stunning jewelry using only the finest diamonds, colored gemstones, and raw materials. Since 2002, the company’s jewelry designers and gemologists have created pieces that are beautiful, well crafted, and socially responsible.
The designs are so many and so varied… scrolling though the Beverly Diamonds website could take a while! I am partial to some of the newer cuts like the Princess and Cushion cut solitaires, but there is literally something for every taste.
All of the jewelry from Beverly Diamonds goes through a strict quality control check. And, every single diamond ring is accompanied by a detailed certificate of appraisal.
Beverly Diamonds specializes in conflict-free stones using the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS). This is used to certify the origin of rough cut diamonds and prevent “blood diamonds” from entering the mainstream rough diamond market. As a consumer, I think it’s crucial to know the origin of my stone.
To see the entire line of gorgeous diamond and gemstone pieces, visit Beverly Diamonds. With Christmas less than 100 days away, I personally plan to start dropping hints now.
