Diamonds are more than precious stones and there are plenty of reasons for them to be ‘a girl’s best friend’. They are beautiful, strong and rare. Thousands of years ago, ancient Greeks and Romans were already aware of the power of the diamond. They called the precious stone adamante (Greek) and adamas (Latin), which both mean ‘invincible’.
Did you know that diamonds grow deep in the earth, at depths of between 150 and 200 km below the surface if there’s sufficient carbon and a temperature of no less than 1300 degrees Celsius? Because of the heat and the enormous pressure, the carbon is packed together and reshaped into a diamond. The carbon atoms attach themselves to each other in a special way, creating a regular lattice. It is this structure that makes diamonds the hardest material ever known.
The diamond growth process is a slow one. Scientists believe that it takes about a billion (1,000,000,000) years for carbon to turn into diamonds. Put them on your wrist in the Diamond Starlette Watch: the first diamond watch by Bernhard H. Mayer®.
