Diamonds are a Forever Gift



Everyone knows that "diamonds are a girl's best friend." But

what most men don't really know is that diamonds are not

just for engagement rings or special anniversary gifts for

their wives. A diamond can be used at just about any

occassion as a romantic gesture or as a very special gift to

show a loved one - be it a wife, mother, daughter, or close

family friend - just how much you care.


Diamond engagement rings are seen as the ultimate romantic

gesture in western civilization, and are associated with

true love and romantic marriage proposals delivered on a

bended knee. This is what most men think of when they think

of diamonds. And, as they go shopping for the perfect

diamond for their soul mate, they can often be overwhelmed

by the styles and cuts of the different diamonds. But don't

worry - your jeweler will be able to help you through the

worst parts, no matter if you're choosing a tradition ring

"off the shelf" or designing a one-of-a-kind custom ring for

your special lady.


But today, diamonds are more than engagement and wedding

rings. And, they are not just for fianc~es or wives. How

about surprising your mother with a diamond brooch for all

the times she was there for you? You can also give your

daughter a pair of diamond stud earrings for her graduation

or eighteenth birthday to show her how grown-up you think

she is. No matter what the occassion, diamonds are a great

way to mark any special or life event.


Another great thing about diamonds is their lasting

properties, seemingly eternal in nature. Unlike a lot of

gifts that will wear out or break down, and be quickly

forgotten, a diamond truly is forever. And, diamonds will

never go out of style, surviving fashion trend after fashion

trend. Further, diamonds often become cherished family

heirlooms, with diamond engagement rings being passed from

mother to daughter to granddaughter, bringing the

generations closer together. So instead of getting a gift

that will fade from memory, why not choose a diamond that

will always be a constant reminder of your love every time

it is worn.


Last but not least, many men believe that giving the gift of

a diamond somehow brings them to a deeper level of

commitment with any girl they choose to present this lovely

"rock" to. They somehow think that a girl will believe that

you are ready to take that next step in your relationship

with the gift of a diamond, and so they steer clear of a

diamond as a gift. But, these men are missing out on the

pure joy and gratitude that accompanies the gift of any

diamond. And, if you stay away from an engagement ring and

choose a diamond that is more appropriate for your level

of involvement - be it earrings or a pendant - your girl

won't come to the wrong conclusion, and you'll have a very

happy young lady on your hands!
