When Marilyn Monroe declared that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, she described her deep appreciation for diamonds. Diamond earrings, bracelets, and necklaces represent love and, as Monroe said… “These rocks don’t lose their shape…” However, this is just one of the reasons that diamonds are a girl’s cherished friend. Here are a few others…
Women love to be indulged!
Diamonds represent indulgence. Whether we purchase reasonably priced diamonds from Michael Hill or they are given to us as a gift, diamonds are extravagant! When we wear them, it’s as though we’re broadcasting that we are loved. A little bit of luxury carries a tremendous amount of weight! As the recent song by Rihanna, “Diamonds” suggests they are also connected with other forms of indulgence.
Diamonds are forever!
Likewise, when Shirley Bassey sang, “Diamonds are forever,” the theme song for the 1971 James Bond film, she declared that “They are all I need to please me. They can stimulate and tease me … They won’t leave in the night,” and “I’ve no fear that they might desert me…” she was describing her disappointments in love. While diamonds, on the other hand, represent the something eternal.
Diamonds are impressive!
Elizabeth Taylor was well known for the famous diamonds she wore. Although we may not admit it, a huge diamond engagement ring seems to announce to the world that a woman is loved. Diamonds stand for betrothal and commitment. Although marriages do end, it cannot be denied that diamonds represent the timeless quality of love. Even though Elizabeth Taylor was married seven times, her obsession with diamonds continued through her lifetime.
Diamonds make us feel like royalty!
Last year a sapphire and diamond ring sold for close to million dollars. The ring was a gift from Napoleon to Joséphine, his fiancé. Years later, Napoleon gave another woman the legendary Napoleon Diamond Necklace. Many stories about royalty involve gifts of diamonds. When we wear diamonds, we sometimes feel that we are living in our own fairy-tale.
Exclusive and elusive:
The fact is that not everyone is able to own real diamonds. If we do, we become part of an exclusive group. Not everyone can afford real diamonds and gold jewellery. This elusive quality sets them apart, so women who own and wear diamonds seem to lead a more affluent life. Diamonds sparkle. Their sheer luminescence places the wearer in a category all her own!
A token of a man’s love:
It is clear that a diamonds represent far more than tokens of love. The giving of a diamond engagement ring stands for a man’s desire to take the relationship to the next level. As we know, diamonds are not cheap. While it’s possible to buy beautiful diamond rings at affordable prices, diamonds require an investment of money and time. An engagement ring announces that he’s wearing his love on his sleeve… that he has selected the receiver to be an ongoing part of his life.
Finally, diamonds go with everything! One of the best ways to transform an outfit is to add diamond jewellery. So… rather than ask why they’re our best friend, we might ask, what’s there not to love about diamonds!
