As much as I adore costume jewelry for the visual statement that a really enormously chunky piece makes, lets face it, nothing beats the real deal. And by “real deal,” I mean diamonds. It comes down to this very simple fact: the hardness of diamonds allow them to take and keep a very sharp edge once they’re cut, they don’t dull easily and because of angles, vectors, refraction and dispersion (yay science!). . .well, let’s just say the brilliance, fire and scintillation (sparkle) that diamonds give off cannot be matched.

Buying diamonds should not be taken lightly, they will stay with you forever. Make sure you know everything there is to know before you buy your first diamonds. Here’s to never losing our edge.
