Whether you hide it at the bottom of a stocking, tie it to a mistletoe or place it inside an ornament, a diamond gift for your wife, mom or sister is a wonderful way to show her how much you care.

You simply cannot put a price on the sentimental value that comes with a diamond gift. In fact, it is often said that a jewellery piece’s true value lies in its sentimental worth. Made to be worn and cherished for years to come, a diamond gift is weighted in meaning and forever represents the special moment or occasion behind it. And these sentiments will no doubt outshine even the biggest and most dazzling cut diamond.

2. Always in Style

Is there any outfit a diamond doesn’t look good with? It adds the perfect amount of sparkle to every look and can be worn day or night. Unlike other types of gifts, diamond jewellery is always in vogue and will never become irrelevant. In the case of the jewellery setting becoming outdated, this can always be changed and upgraded. In essence, a diamond is simply timeless and always in style!

3. Diamonds are Forever

A diamond is more than just a gift to be worn, cherished and loved “now” – it can be passed down to the next generation as a meaningful heirloom for your loved ones and the start of a new family tradition. Its sparkling beauty and story will live on forever through each generation, proving that diamonds really are forever. Plus, the diamond can also retain or even increase in value, depending on its 4Cs.
