Fun Facts About Diamonds

  1. Carbon is the sole component in diamonds. That’s all there is to it; merely carbon! Carbon atoms link in a unique way deep beneath the earth’s surface, under extreme heat and pressure, to form diamonds.

2. Diamonds are the world’s hardest natural material. Diamonds are so strong that only a diamond can make a mark on another diamond. Their melting point is 3547°C / 6420°F, while their boiling point is 4827°C / 8720°F. Diamonds are formed 90 to 120 miles beneath the earth’s surface and are brought to the surface by volcanic eruptions.

3. The diamond is more than a billion years old. The Earth is estimated at 4.5 billion years old. The oldest diamonds are believed to have been crystallized around 3.3 Billion years ago. Diamonds were first discovered in India, and then subsequently in Brazil.

4. Diamonds are available in a wide range of hues. A diamond’s color ranges from pale yellow to colorless, though it can also be brown, blue, green, orange, red, pink, or black.

Why is a Diamond so precious?


Diamonds were created billions of years ago, and are incredibly uncommon as only a small percentage of them survive the perilous journey from the depths of the earth to the surface. Only around half of the diamonds being mined today are estimated to be of sufficient quality to be sold on the diamond market.

Are Diamonds Bulletproof?

Given that diamond is the world’s hardest natural material, it is legitimate to ponder if they are bulletproof. Diamonds, on the other hand, are not impervious to bullets! Because they are hard but not very tough, they will shatter when struck by a bullet due to their brittleness.

Do Diamonds Lose Their Sparkle?

Diamonds, the hardest natural substance on the planet, can cut through any rock or metal, but only another diamond can cut another diamond. A diamond, despite its toughness, can lose its luster if oil or dust is put on it.

Can You crush a Diamond?


Diamonds do not last indefinitely. Because “indestructible” does not imply “hardest.” A diamond can be broken, cracked, or otherwise damaged–after all, jewelers can cut a diamond into those gorgeous facets we all love.

Can You Swim With a Diamond?


Despite the desire of many to never remove their diamonds, wearing your engagement ring in the shower or going with it for a swim is simply not a good idea. Taking it off until you’re ready to put it back on is the best option. All hope is not lost if you were unaware that you should remove your ring before showering.
