Are Diamonds A Girl’s Best Friend?

I’ve always wondered where and why this statement surfaced as a little girl. It originally came from a jazz song introduced by Carol Channing in the original Broadway production of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1949). Later starring Marilyn Monroe in a movie, it’s a comedy about two gold-digging dames who sing and dance, go to Paris, get mixed up with millionaires and paupers, and live happily ever after.

In reality though, it doesn’t quite happen that way. In fact, most of us don’t sing, or dance
(at least, thankfully, not in public) and Paris is a bucketlist item. Till then, I’ll plug away singing “Best Day of My Life” by American Authors quietly in my head while wickedly dancing my fingertips on the keyboard of my computer.

Why a diamond for her best friend? I asked a few of our team members:

“It represents a commitment from the other. It is the most classic, timeless piece as far as trends go.” So true as it never goes out of style throughout ancient history.

“You never lose the value of a diamond, it keeps it’s strength, eminent light and beauty. It is of heirloom quality”

“It’s beauty will last a lifetime and rest gingerly on her finger through all her marriage. So many stories to tell if it could talk.”

Ok…my favorite…

“Diamonds represent marriage in every way…heat and pressure to create a perfect one .”

I’ll just leave this here 🙂
