April's FLAVOR of the MONTH

Ooooo, my favorite MONTH of the year!!!!! APRIL....could it be because it's my birthday....or maybe that the birthstone is DIAMOND!!!!! The word diamond comes from the Greek word adamas meaning "indestructible". The diamond engagment ring is dated back to 1477, when Archduke Maximillian of Austria gave his beloved Mary of Burgundy a diamond ring. The reason that an engagment ring is worn on the third finger of the left hand comes from the Egyptian who believed that "the vein of love" ran from the the heart throught to the tip of your "ring finger".

Diamonds are the earth's most unique and spectacular gifts. Even though the production of diamonds has almost tripled over the last two decades they are still a very scarce resources. Countries like Botswana, Australia, India, Russia and even Canada produce a large portion of the worlds diamonds.

I put together some fabulous diamond inspiration in celebration of APRIL! I hope you enjoy!
