The value the ancients gave diamonds lay in the myths and legends that spread over the minerals origins; they were believed to be shards of stars or gifts from the gods. As such they began to be worn by the ruling classes and soldiers as talismans of status and protection. Moreover, it was a cultural taboo to cut a diamond, so the stones that were used by the romans were raw and uncut. They would be hard to recognised and strikingly different to the modern cut and polished stones that are mounted on engagement rings across the globe today.
