Every girl remembers the first time she received a diamond.
Whether it was a baptism, graduation or one’s sweet 16, behind every diamond is a unique story, a certain emotion evoked and a memory associated that becomes as unbreakable as the enduring gem itself.
Committed to authenticity and quality, My Diamond provides the best jewels to commemorate any occasion. Long-time clients and celebrities, Chris Tiu and Anne Curtis share with us their own diamond experiences.
Just as special it is for a woman to receive her first diamond; Chris Tiu says the same can also be said about the man behind the purchase. A diamond is not a gift that is frivolously given. When a man gives a woman a diamond it is seen as a grand gesture.
Diamonds say that you are committed. Diamonds say that you are special. Diamonds say that the love you share is unbreakable. Be it for a family member, special friend, or significant other Tiu believes that the giving of a diamond is a unique and emotional experience.
For Anne Curtis, buying your first diamond is just as memorable and a more personal experience, because for her, diamonds symbolize more than just love and commitment. When a woman makes her first diamond purchase it is a symbol of her independence, success and liberty.
Wearing a diamond that you purchased makes you feel confident and empowered. Anne’s road to success has not always been easy, but her first diamond purchase is a reminder of the obstacles she was able to overcome.
Whether given or bought there are certain things one must know about diamonds. There are standards upon which diamonds are valued. These depend on the cut, color, clarity and carat weight, commonly known as the 4C’s. In addition to the 4C’s, however, My Diamond values their gems with a 5th C: a certificate that guarantees that your diamond purchase has been graded and examined by expert gemologists.
My Diamond stores are in Glorietta 4, Resorts World Manila, Shangri-La Plaza Mall, SM Megamall, SM Mall of Asia, Gateway Mall, Robinsons Place Manila, Festival Supermall,SM Lanang Davao and Lucky Chinatown Mall.
