Diamond has been enchanting millions of people for centuries. During the Middle Ages, diamond was believed to carry several healing properties. It is said to cure brain and stomach related illnesses. As an amulet, diamond was thought to protect its wearer from poison and all forms of diseases and was commonly suggested to be worn while asleep.

The value of a diamond is assessed using four standard parameters also known as the 4c's of the Diamond: Color, Cut, Clarity and Carat. These represent the shade of transparency of the diamond, how the stone was cut down from the larger mineral, if there are any flaws or marks within the stone, and the weight of the piece.
