“True friends are like diamonds - bright, beautiful, valuable, and always in style.” - Nicole Richie
There’s nothing quite like the brilliance of a diamond. The iconic gem is famous for engagements and weddings. It’s also the traditional stone for 60th and 75th wedding anniversaries. But how often is it thought of as the gift of choice for April birthdays? A diamond is an amazing birthday present that tells your friend how beautiful they are. Here are four timeless pieces for perfect birthday gifts:
This gorgeous cross has five round brilliant cut diamonds set into polished 18 carat white gold. The diamonds were in place at the time of casting. That adds durability to the pendant! It also has a good appraisal value, making it an attractive investment.
Don’t want to give your loved one something too gaudy or frilly? This antique lavaliere is a great fit. The simple filigree design embraces 9 carat gold around a single white diamond. Unique shaped baroque pearls complete the look. It’s a charming antique piece, at an affordable price. A great option for those on a budget!
Who says that diamond rings are just for weddings? This elegant cluster ring proves otherwise. 25 diamonds set in 14kt yellow gold are cast in a cascading waterfall style. It’s a great statement piece for that lively lady friend in your circle. She’ll love turning heads with this piece!
Do you really want to make your April gift count? Go for a black diamond! It’s an unexpected twist that’s as valuable as the traditional. This brilliant cut gem is set in 14 carat gold. Your friendship is unique, and so is this ring. It shows them how you went the extra mile to tell them “thank you!”
Much turbulence happens in the course of our lives, but diamonds are for forever friends. Their formidable structure withstands the test of time and pressure... Like our strongest connections.

Rebecca Latham is in her studio surrounded by the artwork she’s creating. Her favorite household cat is curled up next to her keeping her warm... with a rolling purr. With her paintings in sight, you can feel the knobby pines, the downy swans, and the wiry coat on the fox kit as she brings them to life on canvas.
It is in this setting that Rebecca shares the journey that brought her here.

Here’s a look at a fun one-to-one chat with Bonnie.
