The April Birthstone Pendant
18ct yellow gold vermeil and diamond birthstone pendant
April's birthstone is the all-famous diamond. Known to be the hardest substance in the world, the diamond is arguably the most sought after, modern-day gemstone. Pre-Medieval times, diamonds were worn rough or cut and polished only on their upper surface. But from 1400 onwards, the art of diamond cutting, or lapidary, was developed. Today diamonds are polished in several popular shapes, but the round brilliant-cut is the most common, as illustrated in this birthstone pendant. Their popularity as a stone owes much to De Beers and their iconic 1947 campaign which proclaimed 'A diamond is forever'. In 1939 only 10% of all engagement rings had diamonds, but by 1990 80% had diamonds set within them.
Our Birthstone Pendants are particularly popular as christening presents as they perfectly marry bespoke customisation with timeless elegance. For those who wish to personalise their pendant beyond the central birthstone, we offer custom engraving as well as the application of additional gemstones if required. Examples of fully personalised Birthstone Pendants can be found on our Bespoke Page.
