Here are a few things that you need to know:

Gem quality is what makes diamonds so splendid and special. A diamond wouldn’t be a diamond without each specific and important component of the process. Diamonds form deep in the Earth under extreme heat and pressure- the combination is what causes diamond’s atoms to link together. Before it arrives near the Earth’s surface, it is transported violently upwards by the core’s magma at its rawest form. Afterwards, its natural beauty shines through by cutting and polishing by diamond cutters.

Antoine Lavoiser was the first scientist to suspect that diamonds are composed of carbon minerals. It is the hardest mineral substance on earth because the atoms are arranged in tight three-dimensional patterns that are strongly bonded. 

Scientists estimate that the Earth is 4.54 billion years old, and they determined that diamonds are often much older than their host rocks, such as peridotite (igneous rock) and eclogite (metamorphic rock). While exploring for diamonds is a long, difficult, and expensive process, people tend to think that diamonds are as common as they think. They have a rarity to them that takes years and lots of resources to produce. Only a small percentage of diamonds are considered cuttable, for most of them don’t pass industry quality for them to be able to reach a good clarity grading for industry use.

All diamonds are unique and one-of-a-kind. They are like people in a sense that each individual diamond, comes once in a lifetime. They have their own unique beauty to them that could last the test of time. The stones have a legacy to them that could be passed down from generation to generation without losing its refined beauty.
