History of the Engagement Ring

 

Why are Diamonds so special and alluring? It can go back to De Beers, when the world's largest diamond company launched its famous slogan, "Diamonds are Forever" in 1947. With this one simple statement, the company was able to associate the Diamond with love and a commitment that will last forever.

Today, proposing with a diamond engagement ring is essential. Although Diamonds come in a number of shapes and sizes, it has a universal meaning across the world, which expresses that love is forever.
