Everybody LOVES diamonds!! Since most high quality diamonds are used for jewelry, rosary makers turn to some less expensive options that still add a “diamond look” and sparkle to any rosary. Alternative options include clear quartz stone, clear glass and even Swarovski clear crystal. The most flexible of the three is Czech glass because clear options are available in a variety of shapes, sizes and finishes (matte, AB, luster, etc) that other glass, crystal, and stone colors don’t always offer.
Some even believe that diamonds enhance things like competence, trust and love. They are also a symbol of strength due to their sturdy composition. Although diamonds are usually the first choice in engagement rings, they also represent both the 10th and 60th wedding anniversaries. Another interesting tidbit, many ancient religions saw diamonds as either hardened tears or tools of God (or of “the gods” depending on the religion). What a wonderful visual to keep in mind for those whose birthstone is the diamond!!
Best of all, Diamond (Crystal Clear and Quartz) are also the official birthstones for April!!!
