Diamonds hold a lot of history and spiritual beliefs. Some say they were created by lightning bolts, some say they were the tears of the gods and the Ancient Romans believed Cupid’s arrows were tipped with diamonds. The Hindu tradition links diamonds to Venus and some ancient beliefs link them to the planet Mars. Most of these beliefs led to the tradition of warriors wearings diamonds into battle to help give them strength, courage and protection. Not only were they believed to provide protection, but they were also said to have healing, cleansing powers, especially for illnesses linked to the brain and pituitary glands.
For those born in April, wearing a diamond is said to help make them happier in their relationships, be more successful in life and give them strength from within. Diamonds are also associated with other benefits such as mental clarity, balance and prosperity.
