The Significance of Diamonds

 

 

Diamonds are not just arguably, the most beautiful of all the gemstones, and the hardest natural material known to man, but they also hold some very significant astrological powers.

 

It’s believed, the diamond will provide you with significant powers of healing, powers for wealth, powers for happiness and so much more, if you wear them properly and if you can safely wear them at all.

 

It is very important to consult your astrologist before wearing any gemstone as powerful as the diamond. There could be serious consequences if diamonds aren’t a good match for you.

 

 

Diamond formation

Most natural diamonds are formed at high temperatures and pressure within the Earth’s mantle, 90 to 120 miles beneath the Earth’s surface.

 

Minerals containing carbon make up the carbon in a diamond, which takes 1 to 3.3 billion years to form. This is 25% to 75% of the Earth’s age. They are brought close to the surface, to be mined, from deep volcanic eruptions, which produce magma. The magma cools to form igneous rocks known as kimberlites and lamproites.

 

History of the diamond

The name diamond is an ancient Greek word meaning “unbreakable”. Diamonds are believed to have been first mined in India 3,000 to 6,000 years ago. They have risen in popularity in the 19th century due to increased supply, improved cutting and polishing techniques, growth in the world’s economy and innovative and successful advertising campaigns.

 

 

The diamond engagement ring

The saying “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend”, most likely comes from the diamond being the traditional gemstone, within an engagement ring, given to a woman by a man professing his love and willingness to commit his life to her in marriage.

 

The tradition of giving a woman a diamond engagement ring is believed to date back to a Roman custom in which a wife wore rings attached to small keys, indicating a husband’s ownership. This isn’t really the way we currently believe the engagement ring’s significance to be, but times were different back then.

 

Archduke Maximilian of Austria is recorded as commissioning the very first engagement ring for his betrothed, Mary of Burgundy. This started the trend, in European aristocracy and nobility, of giving a bride to be a diamond engagement ring.

 

 

In the Victorian era, ornate engagement ring designs became popular. These rings mixed diamonds with other gemstones, precious metals and enamels and were crafted in the shapes of flowers. They were called “poesy rings” because of their shape.

 

 

The Planets

According to Vedic astrology, wearing the correct gemstone can bring you a wealth of benefits. There is a total of nine planets in our solar system, each planet symbolizes a specific aspect of our life.

 

Each of the nine planets have positive, as well as negative traits and each of these planets are represented by a specific gemstone, among other things. The diamond is the gemstone that represents Venus.

 

Venus is the planet that represents the power of love, compassion and divine knowledge. Venus, or as it’s known in Vedic astrology Shukra, is known for all things that are beautiful and luxurious to you.

 

The planet Venus represents the bond of love between two souls. It’s also responsible for the fine arts and careers, which require an abundance of creativity including acting, music, painting and entertainment.

 

If you are ruled by Venus, you will possess an air of elegance and you will have a desire for the better things in life.

 

 

How to wear a diamond for the most astrological benefit

Diamonds, or heera, as they are known in Hindi, can be worn in a number of traditional settings. However, for the most astrological benefits, you should wear them in either a ring of pendant setting.

 

Who should wear a diamond

Diamonds are most beneficial to you if you already possess an abundance of creativity. Some of the people who will benefit the most from wearing diamonds include:

 

  • Writers
  • Poets
  • Actors
  • Artists
  • Musicians
  • Painters
  • Any other “Creative” people

 

Astrological benefits of diamonds to different zodiac signs

Diamonds affect people differently based on their zodiac sign. These differences include:

 

 

Capricorn – The ruling planet for the zodiac sign Capricorn is Saturn. Saturn has a good relationship with Venus, which the diamond represents. Another significant fact in this reference is that it rules over the 5th and 10th houses of the horoscope chart which is a positive combination if you are a Capricorn. In this case the diamond will provide you Capricorns with success and comfort throughout your life.

 

A blue sapphire will enhance the strength of the diamond. So, besides being a very attractive combination, a setting with blue sapphires accompanying your diamond will supercharge the benefits you receive from just the diamond alone.

 

There are many specific and powerful benefits you will receive from wearing a diamond properly and in accordance with the astrological guidelines. As always, it’s best to consult with your personal astrologist before adding something as powerful as a gemstone to your daily accessories.

 

However, here are some of the basic benefits that a diamond will provide if worn properly.

 

 

Health Benefits

Diamonds offer the person who is properly wearing the powerful gemstone a wide variety of health benefits. The health benefits provided by a diamond go along the lines of the benefits that the planet Venus itself provides.

 

The powerful gemstone will provide you with healing benefits if you’re suffering from diseases that include weak reproductive organs, kidney diseases or the lack of sexual desires.

 

The diamond will also provide you with relief in cases of diabetes, urination problems and overall issues with your “nether regions”

 

As you can see, there is a very good reason for diamonds being a girl’s best friend.
