Each month of the year is traditionally associated with a gemstone. For those born in April your birthstone is diamond, the most highly valued of all the gemstones. Colourless diamonds are the most popular option, however diamonds also exist in yellow, brown, blue, reddish, black and sometimes green hues. The name is derived from the Ancient Greek word adámas
which means unconquerable, in reference to its characteristic hardness. Diamonds hold a long history as objects of incredible beauty and desire dating back to antiquity.
