Diamonds were first thought to have been discovered in the 4th century BC in India and were popularised in western culture from around the 15th century. Throughout their history, diamonds have represented wealth and strength. Vintage diamond jewellery has been prized  for centuries due to its extreme rarity.

Diamonds are mined  in various locations throughout the world, such as Australia, Brazil, China, Russia, Canada and central and southern Africa. Most of the stones found in vintage diamond jewellery would have been sourced from southern Africa and, to a lesser extent, India. Russian and Canadian diamonds are relatively recent discoveries and most of the stones found in Australia, for example, are of an industrial rather than gem quality.
