Diamond is the hardest known natural material on both the Vickers and the Mohs scale, and for that reason is an excellent choice for a center stone in jewelry. Rings get the most abuse because we use our hands often and are usually worn all the time. A diamond can withstand this everyday wear and can be passed down through generations.
Here at Jewelers Bench, we have many diamonds available to browse through and choose from in store with accompanying lab reports from the GIA, EGL, or AGS.
Diamond alternatives are also available. For example, moissanite and cubic zirconia.
