Diamond is a precious gemstone known for its sparkling beauty. It gets its name from the Greek word ‘adamas’, meaning that it’s either ‘invincible’ or ‘unbreakable’. A diamond’s rigid structure and dazzling look is accompanied by sweet symbolism. It is known to portray happiness, beauty, strength, and for warding off the evil eye.

A short history and usage of diamonds

The traces of the very first diamonds trace back to India in the 4th century BCE. Although they were initially retrieved by the rich and the royal, they came into Europe through merchants. During that medieval era, Venice would serve as the center for these precious stones. 

Other than India, Brazil also became an important source for mining diamonds at the beginning of the 18th century. Moving fast forward, South Africa also became an important attraction site when the world’s biggest diamond was found there in 1905.

Symbolically speaking, Nava Zahavi believes diamonds serve as an epitome of security and strength. Their beautiful spellbinding texture is known to ward off the evil eye. This meaning has its roots firmly grounded in ancient times. But today, you can find that diamonds are used even beyond jewelry, in industries as far as engineering.

Some beautiful diamond jewelry combinations

With all that said, diamonds are one of the most versatile stones for jewelry. You can mix and match them with any other substance and they’d still dazzle as they do on their own.

1. Raw diamonds in different colors

Diamonds shimmer and shine in every color. Each shade has both an emotional and psychological effect on the wearer. This Diamond Mist Necklace from Nava Zahavi is a prime example of the stunning effect of various colorful raw diamonds brought together.

2. Diamonds and pearls

Diamonds of any color can look amazing with white, gray, and black pearls. But the purity of white pearls takes the enthralling beauty of classic diamonds to another level. These Diamonds and Pearls earrings from Nava's collection are the perfect choice for both traditional and modern outfits. 

3. Diamond and gold

Gold is undoubtedly one of the most sought-after metals in jewelry. It’s a symbol of royalty that resembles sunshine. As for diamonds, they’re no less than stars shimmering in the darkest of nights. Thus, Nava Zahavi believes that bringing diamond and gold together creates an almost surreal effect. The Diamonds in the Waves ring is a remarkable example of this celestial-like combination.

Nava Zahavi highly recommends you get diamond jewelry even if you weren’t born in April. And if you’re still waiting for your birth month, keep an eye out for this section. We’ll be covering all the birthstones coming up ahead!
