True or False Diamond?

wedding ring engagement ring diamond jewelry

Diamonds may be the hardest substance on earth, but that doesn't mean they're indestructible. In fact, diamonds are so fragile that they're made under extreme pressure and heat deep within the earth’s mantle. So if you've ever been tempted to eat a diamond (hey, it happens!), think again: You won't be doing your gastrointestinal tract any favors in the long run!

In The Old Days, Diamonds Were Placed In Someone's Food.

In the old days, diamonds were placed in someone's food. This was a way to show that you were serious about your feelings for them—that you wanted to spend the rest of your life with them.

The tradition of giving engagement rings dates back far longer than most people realize. In fact, diamond engagement rings have been around for thousands of years! Back then, they weren't considered a symbol of love or romance; they were simply used as an indicator of wealth and prosperity (although this was most likely just because they were so expensive). The saying goes: “Diamonds are a girl's best friend.” And indeed, diamonds are forever—meaning that once you get married and put one on your finger, it stays there until death does us part (or until divorce proceedings begin).

The Largest Diamond Ever Found Was Called The "Golconda", A Pear Shaped Diamond That Weighed In At 787 Carats.

In the 16th century, India was known for its diamond mines. One of those mines was called Golconda, and it produced some of the largest diamonds ever found. The largest one weighed in at 787 carats!

The Blue Hope Diamond Was Originally Colored Red Before It Was Cut.

Pierre-Simon Laplace cut it in the 18th century.

Laplace was an expert in gem cutting and a member of the French Academy of Sciences, which made him well known among people interested in science and art at that time. He worked in France, where he created many pieces of fine jewelry for members of the royal family; his skills helped make him famous throughout Europe before he moved to London to work for King George III (1738-1820).

He cut this diamond in Paris, well known for its jewelry making traditions since medieval times.

You Can Make Diamonds With Peanut Butter And Lighter Fluid.

To make diamonds with peanut butter, you need to add a lot of heat and pressure. Lighter fluid is not enough by itself. You can make a diamond with the right conditions, but it's very difficult to do on your own at home (you need advanced equipment).

Diamonds are made of carbon and are formed under extreme pressure and heat deep within the earth’s mantle.

Diamonds are not made of carbon. They are actually composed of a combination of carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen and others.

Diamonds do not form under extreme pressure and heat deep within the earth's mantle. Diamonds form at high temperatures and pressures that occur in places like volcanoes.
