When it comes to birthstones, people born in April really struck gold—or should we say diamonds?

Admired since ancient times of their beauty (humans have been trading in diamonds since as early as 4 BCE according to the American Gem Society) diamonds have long been the most prized of gemstones. Made from pure carbon, it's the hardest gemstones on the planet (58 times harder than any other naturally occurring material,) can come in a variety of colors. While Jennifer Lopez's stunning diamond engagement ring from ARodhas recently made emerald cuts all the rage, diamonds can also be cut into a plethora of styles to show off their natural light-reflecting brilliance.

Whether you're looking to say "I do" or presenting a special birthday treat, there's no wrong way to celebrate with diamonds. Below, we've rounded up a few standout styles to get you started.
