Irrespective of the accuracy of ancient beliefs and traditions, today it is a well-documented fact that diamonds have been used in art and jewelry for over 3,000 years. In fact, diamond cutting dates back to Venice in the 1330s. However, trading in diamonds did not become popular until the Eastern trade routes opened up in the 15th century. One of the main reasons for the popularity of the gemstone in jewelry is the fact that each of its commonly cut 58 facets can catch and refract light. This gives diamonds a wondrous sparkle, something that makes them attractively unique. Diamonds are mined in numerous places across the world, including South Africa, Australia, India, Russia, Botswana, Namibia and Brazil. It is possible to purchase diamonds in all sorts of colors across the world. While colorless diamonds remain the classic choice, the rarity of finding certain colored stones of high quality sometimes makes them even more valuable. For example, high-quality canary diamonds may fetch a higher price than their clear counterpart of the same quality.
