Did you know
The word diamond derives from the Greek word “adamas”, which means invincible or indestructible. The ancient Greeks and Romans believed that diamonds were tears cried by the gods or splinters from falling stars, and Romans believed that Cupid’s arrows were tipped with diamonds (perhaps the earliest association between diamonds and romantic love).
