Diamond Engagement Rings
The most popular gemstone for engagement rings is the diamond. Diamonds are a girl's best friend, so it makes sense that they would be the go-to choice for the most romantic moment in life.
The history behind this tradition dates back to ancient times when diamonds were only found in Africa and India. When Europeans first discovered them, they were considered to be rare treasures and symbols of royalty. After all, there was no way that your average farmer could afford such an expensive stone at home!
