A Diamond Tattoo lasts forever, or at least as long as it possibly can on the wearer’s skin. The diamond has long been a symbol of “forever” as well as “lasting love” and “quality.” Although it is not the rarest gemstone in the world, it is by far the most popular, especially in modern Western culture, with its longstanding tradition of the engagement and wedding rings. The engagement ring is a relatively modern concept, brought about by successful marketing campaigns by the diamond industry at the time, which was during the late 1930’s after the diamond industry took a nosedive after The Great Depression. There is no denying the diamond’s beauty, as well as its cost, sometimes being human lives to keep up with supply. The 2006 movie “Blood Diamond” brought this issue up to mainstream audiences to consider, however, the diamond is still the most popular gemstone out there.
