Diamond is associated with ideals of purity, love, nobility, and wealth and with curses, corruption, and poverty. Its unique properties are studied by physicists and geologists, while its value, brilliance, and cultural importance make it a target of historians, investors, lovers, and thieves. Simple, iconic, and beautiful, diamond is the ultimate gemstone.
