Why are engagement rings made with diamonds?

Diamonds have become a popular choice for engagement rings over the past century, with many couples opting for these precious gemstones as a symbol of their love and commitment. But why are engagement rings made with diamonds? In this blog, we will explore the history and cultural significance behind the use of diamonds in engagement rings.


The history of diamond engagement rings can be traced back to the ancient Greeks, who believed that diamonds were the tears of the gods and the symbol of eternal love. However, it wasn't until the 15th century that diamond engagement rings became popular among European royalty and the wealthy. At that time, diamonds were rare and expensive, and only the wealthiest members of society could afford them.


In the late 1800s, a significant diamond discovery in South Africa changed the availability and value of diamonds, making them more accessible to the middle class. However, it wasn't until a marketing campaign launched by the De Beers mining company in the 1930s that diamond engagement rings became a mainstream phenomenon.


The marketing campaign, which featured the now-famous slogan "A diamond is forever," aimed to increase demand for diamonds by promoting the idea that a diamond engagement ring was an essential part of a successful marriage proposal. The campaign was hugely successful, and by the end of the 20th century, diamond engagement rings had become the norm in Western culture.


But why are diamonds such a popular choice for engagement rings?


·       One reason is their durability and hardness. Diamonds are one of the hardest substances on earth and are virtually indestructible, making them a perfect symbol of enduring love and commitment.

·       Another reason for the popularity of diamond engagement rings is their rarity and value. Diamonds are one of the rarest and most valuable gemstones in the world, and their scarcity has made them a symbol of wealth and status.

·       Diamonds are beautiful and sparkly, which makes them an ideal choice for engagement rings. They catch the light and shimmer, drawing attention and making the wearer feel special.



Heera engagement rings have become a popular choice for couples around the world, thanks to their durability, rarity, beauty, and cultural significance.

Diamond engagement rings have undergone a transformation in terms of their styles, with a wide range of diamond shapes, cuts, and colors available. The bride's personality can be reflected through the choice of a diamond engagement ring. A conventional bride may prefer a classic white diamond in a round brilliant cut, while a contemporary bride may gravitate towards something distinctive such as a natural fancy yellow diamond ring in a pear-shaped cut.


Couples today continue to choose these precious gemstones as a symbol of their love and commitment. Ultimately, the decision to use a diamond engagement ring is a personal one, and couples should choose what feels right for them.
