Diamonds have been around forever – literally! When you ask how old is this diamond remember most diamonds were created by nature at the birth of the Earth billions of years ago and other still older diamond came to earth via meteorites from distant stars. They were first found in India about 5000 years ago, they just like any stone and are known as rough diamonds. Largely diamonds only came from India until the 18th century.  Here at The Chelsea Bijouterie, we like to think we can answer pretty much any question about the diamonds used in our vintage Jewellery.

Diamond is a mineral that is a crystalline form of carbon, element C. Graphite is also carbon, element C. However the atoms of these two minerals are joined in very different manners. Those of graphite are loosely formed whereas those of diamond is formed in a tight 3-dimensional pattern with a strong bond in all directions which is why diamond is the hardest natural substance known to man, 10 on the Mohs scale of hardness. This is just one of the properties that make diamonds an ideal gem for everyday wear.
