Diamond, i.e. "Undeafeated".

It is the purest crystal form of carbon formed inside the earth at immense pressure and high temperature. The most popular and common is a round cut called brilliant. Their shine will fascinate every woman. It's hardness, durability and purity symbolises the bond between a man and a woman and therefore it is the most common and popular stone used in engagement rings.
Considered a sacred gemstone, associated with the sun – the greatest and indestructible element. It ensures fidelity and an enduring relationship because, being pure itself, it does not tolerate falsity.

Factories manufacture imitations-artificial diamonds called zircons.
