Each Diamond has the innocent beauty of the true maturity a person acquires only by fully embracing both
the perils and the pleasures of life's journey. Such mature innocence seems much like the innocence of a newly born child.
In truth, though, it is the innocence of a life fully realized.

A diamond's dense structure of pure carbon forms as it journeys from deep within the Earth, being hardened while riding
a glowing river of molten magma, to the surface. Not all diamonds survive such a difficult journey.
The diamond that has survived such a journey has such clarity as has the mature innocence of an experience-tested adult
who appears, upon first meeting, to have much in common with the innocence of a newly-born child.
FIRST AMONG THE "FIRST FIVE"
Diamonds are the most precious
of the precious among the five gemstones known collectively as the Maharatnani ( the Five Chief Gems) in the Hindu tradition.
While the other four gemstones of the Maharatnani - Pearls, Rubies, Sapphires and Emeralds - are very beautiful, Diamonds
hold an especial desirability.
THE SPECIAL ATTRACTIVENESS OF DIAMONDS
So, you may ask, what is Diamond's special attractiveness? There are many explainations..
I like the one found in an early myth about the creation of the Diamond:

DIAMOND'S SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP WITH LIGHT
Another reason for Diamond's attractiveness is its special relationship with light. When light passes through
a well-cut Diamond, a marvelous beaulty returns to delight you. Optical characteristics such as luster, brilliance, dispersion
(fire), scintillation, and color combine to give a Diamond such exceptional radiance and beauty.

DIAMONDS AND COLOR
Color is integral to the way Diamond delights the eye.
There are two ways of thinking about a diamond's color.
First of all, when you choose a "colorless diamond", you will discover that its degree of transparency, when considered
with its degree of clarity, its cut and its carat weight, will determine this diamond's price. A colorless diamond is either
colorless or lightly tinted, usually a brown, a yellow, or a gray. The deeper the tint, the less the price.
You might also find "fancy" diamonds attractive. These Diamonds, natural or enhanced, occur in many colors. Usually,
the deeper and more vivid the color, the higher the cost. Of course, natural colored diamonds are more valuable than those
whose color has been enhanced.

Maybe you have had your head
turned by diamond substitutes, enhanced diamonds or synthetic diamonds. While it is true that some of these imposters are
obvious even to the untrained eye, others may fool you or woo you away from the most precious of the precious gemstones.
To be certain, you should always buy a Diamond from a trained and reputable seller.

You may have been attracted to Diamonds the first time they flashed their charm or you may, like me, have
acquired your appreciation of Diamonds' distinctive beauty over time. You may have done so either by way of your mind, your
heart, or your soul.
Diamonds bring to us an understanding of a shared life of beauty, an innocent truth that is unchanged by time. As we
have been enjoined: Beauty is Truth and Truth is Beauty - that is all we know and all we need to know. Such is the truth
of an innocence that can only be gained by experiencing the fires and pressures during the times of our lives.
