2. Diamonds Have Many Uses

From special blades to drills and polishing tools – diamonds sure have many uses and if you wear prescription eye glasses then I’m sure you’ll find these facts about diamonds very interesting! Why? Because we have diamonds and their amazing ability to cut lenses to thank for being able to walk into the store, pick out that gorgeous pair of glasses and have them fitted and ready to wear in just a couple of hours! Diamonds have been used in jewelry for maaany maaany years now and although you might feel the need to scream, “Duuuh!” and give me the what-kind-of-idiot-do-you-take-me-for look, let me just say it had nothing to do with price, shine or status symbols! You see, before jewelers have realized how precious diamond really is, they basically used it as a tool, to cut and engrave other gems!
