Have you ever looked at your diamond and thought, “Who could’ve thought of such intricacies when cutting a stone?” 
•
Young mathematician Marcel Tolkowsky’s original work on the mathematical formula for maximizing reflection and refraction of light (think: sparkle factor ✨) of diamonds has been left significantly unchanged in the 100 years since he published his work. Initially intended as a favor for his diamond-dealing uncle, the 19-year-old mathematician went on to write his PHD thesis on this work.
•
Tolkowsky eventually fled to the US from Nazi persecution and became a career diamond dealer. Thanks, Tolkowsky, for making the world much brighter. 💎

This giant beauty is named the Orlov Diamond. It was purchased for Catherine the Great and set into the Russian Imperial Scepter. One legend suggests that it was stolen from the eye of a temple statue in India and is now cursed. One story tells of Napoleon’s invading army being scared away from stealing the diamond by the ghost of a priest.

It doesn’t exactly match today’s level of sparkle, but this is the first documented instance of a diamond ring as an engagement ring. In 1477, Archduke Maximilian of Austria, future Holy Roman Emperor, proposed marriage to Duchess Mary of Burgundy with a diamond ring.

Sometimes talking about color and diamonds can be a little confusing. GIA, the world’s foremost authority on diamonds, created the D-Z color scale to describe the relative appearance of color in colorless diamonds. Diamonds with color beyond the D-Z scale are considered Fancy. Colors such as yellow, pink, blue, and so on, have their own scale to describe intensity and saturation of color.
•
In one of her most well-known roles as Lorelei in “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes”, Marilyn Monroe did not wear any live diamonds. She did, however, wear a Fancy 24.4 carat diamond, the Moon of Baroda, for promotional stills for the film.
•
Other examples of Fancy color diamonds can be found in the third picture of this post.

Elizabeth Taylor called her engagement ring from Mike Todd, my “ice skating rink.” The diamond is 29.4 carats.
•
Diamond carats are a measurement of weight. Diamonds can be spoken of in terms of points with 100 total points for each whole carat. Elizabeth Taylor’s “ice rink” at 29.4 carats is 29 whole carats and “0.4” points (or 40 of 100 points.)

While we can’t be certain he was the first, Lodewyk van Bercken was an incredibly important early inventor of the scaif. The scaif uses a wheel coated in oil and diamond dust to grind and polish diamonds. Previously, tools for polishing diamonds were difficult to use and limiting. With the scaif, it became feasible to facet diamonds and possible to polish in a more controlled manner.

One of the origin stories for the name Antwerp comes from “ant” for hand and “werpen” for launch. This is associated with the folklore of the giant Druon Antigoon who enforced a toll on the river Scheldt. To those who would not or could not pay, he cut off one of their hands and tossed it into the river Scheldt. Captain Silvius Brabo of the Roman army, in retaliation, cut off the giant’s hand and tossed it into the river. The Brabofontein, or Brabo Fountain, celebrates this moment.

The immense red gemstone set in the Imperial State Crown of England, once thought to be a ruby, is actually a 170 carat spinel. Owned by Moorish and Spanish Kings, it came into the possession of Edward, Prince of Wales by 1367. Held by a series of British monarchs, the so-called “Black Prince’s Ruby” was finally set into the Imperial State Crown for the coronation of King George VI in 1937.

“Some people spend $20,000 or $30,000 on a diamond in 10 minutes, completely nonchalantly, while others sob uncontrollably over a $2,000 ring. It’s not just about jewelry, really— it’s the whole experience. In the end, it’s about falling in love.” — Joel Katz, Antwerp Diamond Dealer interviewed by Lynn Yaeger in 2017
