Brussel's airport was the scene for a real life $50 million dollar diamond heist stages last week. Diamond's hold allure, romanticism and fortunes. Internationally the heist made the news but mostly because of the world's obsession with diamonds.
Who said "diamonds are a girls best friend?"
Diamond's are the mona lisa of rocks. They are the hardest known gem out there. Plus, they exist thousands of miles below the earths surface,slowly worming their way to the top. The middle ages saw a time of discovery with these gemstones. The first person to use a diamond engagement ring was the Archduke Maximilian of Austria in 1477.
