April Birthstone Diamond

Monthly birthstones symbolize the month of birth according to the Gregorian Calendar.

The ancient Hindus called the Diamond "Vajra," meaning lightening, both because of the sparks of light thrown off by this gem as well as its invincible strength. The Diamond is harder than any other substance on earth.

The April birthstone of the Diamond is considered to be the birthstone for Aries (The sign of the Ram) and relate to those born between March 21 - April 19. The Zodiac sign of Aries also responds to Bloodstone, Topaz, Sapphire, Jasper, and Aquamarine

I must say, the pieces you feature here are really great. I have had this fascination for birthstones for a very long time and it is not limited to my own birthstone but all of them in general. Imagine my delight when I found some collars for my pets with really nice birthstones set into them. :)
