But these days, engagement and wedding rings are frequently set along with diamonds. Hence, you would have a difficult time finding a wedding or an engagement ring that did not consist of a real diamond or even a similar alternative. Diamonds can also symbolize wealth and status. As the early royal families, aristocrats, and wealthy families held collections of diamonds, and it is not uncommon to find diamonds of adorn wallets, bags, phone cases, or even clothing. While diamonds have become more popular and prevalent, they, at the same time, remain a luxury product that is reserved for those who can afford it. Diamonds, besides love and wealth, can represent the symbol of extravagance and beauty.
