Diamonds are known to belong to only a certain class of people who have the entire world to themselves. They have been known to be the best engagement and wedding rings since time immemorial.
Diamonds are believed to be for the very few people who are wealthy enough to afford them. But did you know that diamonds have other uses besides making jewelry? We are all familiar with the earrings, rings, pendants and other fine jewelry that is made out of this precious stone.
Diamonds have a superior strength and unique properties that make them useful in other areas apart from making jewelry. Diamond guru Ira Weissman states, “the diamond trade is one of the biggest and most sophisticated businesses in the world today.” And it has also found its way into other uses like the ones we will look at below.
Other uses of diamonds include:
Diamond beauty products – These products are only heard from the well-known celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Mila Kunis, etc. It should be known that these products are not limited to celebrities only but to everyone. Diamond beauty products contain diamond dust and are now commonly available with many beauty companies adopting them though they are a bit pricey. Diamond beauty products are commonly used as exfoliators because they are a strong abrasive for your skin. Diamonds also make wrinkles fade, the reason why many celebrities use them. A high concentration of diamond dust is required to seal the wrinkles completely. With diamonds, there is no aging at all!
Health products – Like consumables. Yes! Diamonds are known to have great health benefits. It’s not the old myth of warding off the evil eye but it is legitimate medical research that has proven so. Nanodiamonds are tiny diamonds particles that are a thousand times smaller than any single human hair. These nanodiamonds have a high effective rate of cancer drugs. These nanodiamonds are relied on by doctors because they are compatible with human cells. Researchers are also testing diamonds to help the visually impaired.
Audio equipment – Really? Yes, really! Audiophiles would prefer diamonds for improving sound quality. Diamond speaker domes are known to produce high-quality sound because diamonds are hard enough to vibrate at very high speeds without warping and damaging the audio quality. Diamond record needles used by the DJs and record players are also known to be of high quality. Thinking of how much the sound has changed thanks to the diamonds used in the equipment, we cannot help but marvel at what the future holds.
Now you know; next time you are looking for diamonds, they may be in the places you would least expect them to be. Still, it is fashionable to wear them around on your jewelry and display the beauty. Don’t let these other uses discourage you from wearing your diamond jewelry; they are meant to be worn by only the classy and paraded for the world to drool over.
