The Invincible Style Bible digs deeper into what makes the diamond a girl's best friend.

We've heard Marilyn Monroe chant, “Diamonds, diamonds, I don't mean rhinestones…but diamonds are a girl's best friend.” Even Nicole Kidman in Moulin Rouge sang it many times. But what really makes this gemstone the prized one?

Diamond means “unbreakable.” It is the hardest known natural mineral and is the only gemstone composed of a single element: carbon. Carbon may be abundant in all life forms but it takes a combination of intense heat and tremendous pressure at a location 140 to 190 kilometers below the earth's surface to create what is perhaps the most beautiful stone one can find.

Each diamond, like your fingerprint, is distinctly different from the other. Its brilliance makes it highly covetable; thus, it has been part of many momentous occasions.

Buying a piece of diamond jewelry is an experience in itself. However, one should be educated prior to making such purchase as it is considered a huge and significant investment. My Diamond's Assistant Brand Manager, Jaimee De Guzman, takes us to the mystical world of diamonds. Jaimee explains the factors that affect its value known as the five C's. The combination of these factors determines the value of the stone.
