The tenth year of marriage is like stepping into the realm of eternal love. And what better gem to represent this journey than the brilliant and timeless diamond. A diamond is an extraordinary mineral and is a symbol of strength and togetherness. A beautiful quote from Turkish playwright Mehmet Murat ildan Resmi captures the essence of the tenth anniversary and the brilliant diamond: "There are two kinds of diamonds in this world: the diamond itself and the eyes full of love!"
The story of the diamond begins in India where they were used for trade as long ago as the fourth century B.C. Throughout time, and with a surge of education and technology, the diamond has gone from the production of less than a million carats a year in 1870, to over 100 million carats a year currently. Marriage, like the diamond, will go through pressures and incredible journeys throughout time, which ultimately reveals the beauty and strength of each.
Whether traditional or daring, there are many options! Flawless cuts, color, and clarity will always be at the top of perfection and tradition. However, there are many other options: fancy colors like yellows, blues, and pinks. Daring black diamonds. Amazing salt & peppers with silky inclusions and stormy colors. So many options as you search for the perfect diamond symbolizing the journey of ten years of marriage.
