Now I don't have any diamonds so have whipped this photo off the internet. As this stone is generally associated with either a necklace or engagement ring I have chosen the engagement ring to showpiece this gemstone.
Now, the reason so many people opt for a diamond as the stone of choice in the ring which shows their intention to marry is, well partly for tradition, but also because it is represents purity and innocence as well as faithfulness and love. The translucent white reflecting back at you conjures this up. It is a bonding stone and gives clarity to it's users, as well as bringing new beginnings so it's no wonder people use it as their commitment to marriage stone.
Other uses for the diamond are strength of mind and bravery, it gives fortitude. As a stone known for being extra hard, not only the hardest stone but also the hardest mineral, and can cut glass this isn't really a surprising attribute. It clears the mind of negative thoughts and helps with imagination - and actually, those too would be very good for an engaged couple.
On the part of healing, clearing occurs again as it helps clear the sight, and glaucoma in the eyes. It is good for the brain and counteracts poisons. It blocks electromagnetic rays, so for those loved up couples calling each other constantly on the mobile it could help with those dangerous microwaves.
A very beautiful stone, and if you are inclined to think that way, also a very useful one. Do you, or would you, have one for your engagement ring?
