Why and How did diamonds become so valuable or in demand? There are other rocks prettier. I don't get it. How did they ogiginate to be put on engagement rings?

SmoothJason and Kim...jump over to the Diamonds and Gemstone forum...there is a more in depth discussion of this thread over there (and yes, pearls were considered more rare and valuable than diamond for many years before the process of culturing pearls made them more readily available and less valuable).
