Why do diamonds represent love?

It is a popular belief that women have a thing for diamonds, but in reality, women are not the only ones attached to the precious stone. Right from the pre-historic era, diamonds have always been valued higher than other gems.
Initially discovered in the fluvial ore of the rocks along Godavari, Penner and Krishna rivers in India, the gem is believed to have been first mined in India 4 millenniums ago.

There’s also this old belief that diamonds possess supernatural powers to bring about protection, fortune and oppose astrological happenings. Well, the Hindus even went as far as fitting diamonds as eyes for their stone-made gods and lot of ancient cultures are also of the belief that diamonds can be used as a powerful charm for love protection and sexual strength so much that many of them wore diamonds to battles and as talisman to lure other people to themselves.
For ages, the precious stone has also been widely recognized as a symbol of fidelity and unending love. Little wonder it remains the highest choice of intending couples for engagement and wedding bands. Perhaps this symbolism must have originated from Greece where it was believed that their deity of affection and erotic love had diamond arrows whose magic was capable of inciting love between couples. Or maybe it must have come from the Greek origin of the word itself i.e. (adámas) which represents proper, unchangeable, indestructible, or untamed – similar attributes to erotic love.
