Since the time of ancient Greeks to modern day, diamonds are said to be magical, powerful and to contain healing powers. They are also revered for their physical properties, durability and sparkle. Diamonds were used in many ways, worn as adornments, used as cutting tools, served as a talisman to ward off evil, diamonds used as a medical aid and were thought to cure illness and heal wounds.
The most famous tradition of the diamond ring is the use of them as engagement rings. This is due to the fact the diamond is considered the ultimate symbol of love since 1447 when Archduke Maximillian of Austria gave Mary of Burgundy a diamond ring as a promise of marriage. However, the Romans also valued the diamond and believed it could maintain a good relationship between a married couples so they began to set the diamond stone in rings.
