Diamonds have significant meanings, messages, inspiration, knowledge, and predictions to share with us. We will discuss those meanings to find out what diamonds are trying to tell you.

What Are the Properties of Diamonds?

Diamonds come in several colors. The most available of these colors are white, pink, yellow, blue, and brown. While interpreting the meanings and keywords for diamonds, we will be discussing only those colors.

Top Three Keywords:

  • Purifying
  • Absorbing
  • Abundance

Purifying is defined as removing contaminants from, make ceremonially clean, or extract something from. Some of the best synonyms for this word are washing, baptism, purging, and even forgiveness. Forgiveness would explain why diamonds are a girl's best friend! The world needs a lot of forgiveness. Purifying is a word I also think of when getting ready for a change. Diamonds could be trying to tell you to prepare for the new and wash clean the unwanted things in your life.

Absorbing is defined as intensely interesting or engrossing. Its synonyms or similar meanings are fascinating, interesting, or captivating, just to name a few. My personal favorite synonym that I use often if I'm thinking in terms of divination as an alternative to this word is embracing. I like embracing because I think of diamonds during engagements and people who are getting married are about to embrace a new life or enter into something new.

Abundance, in its basic understanding, is defined as improving in quantity. When thinking in terms of divination, it is important to think of these terms neutrally and go with your intuition. As most people would consider abundance as a positive thing, it can also be negative. Abundance can go either way based on how you feel about the outcome. You wouldn't want an abundance of trash but you might like an abundance of wealth. Hopefully, this keyword means good things for you but you should honor your feelings for they are your true emotional guidance system.

Your higher self will try to speak to you through symbolism like diamonds and numbers to get your attention. It is up to you follow the signs and interpret their meanings and look for confirmation.

A diamond’s creation requires immense pressure and intense temperatures to reach its highest potential. Without enduring the adversity and pressure of its environment, the diamond would never become the treasure it was meant to be. May the changes you grow through bring incredible value in helping you forge a remarkable and multi-faceted life.

Metaphysical Properties: Chakras, Birthstones, Zodiac, and Planet

Crown Chakra
Center for trust, devotion, inspiration, happiness, and positivity
It is believed that the origination of assigning a birthstone for each month dates back to a breastplate that Aaron, the older brother of Moses, wore, which represented the Twelve Tribes of Israel. In biblical times, people wore the gemstone assigned to the month that the stone represented as a talisman.
Aries, Taurus, Leo
Diamond is the best stone for Aries as the first sign of the zodiac but is also associated with Taurus and Leo.
There is a planet made up mostly of diamond called 55 Cancri e and was discovered in 2004, but the diamond is ruled by the planet Venus.

Healing Meanings

The keywords associated with diamonds and healing are:

  • Eyes
  • Clarity
  • Bright

Diamonds are an excellent healer of sight. As diamonds purify the unwanted, they also bring clarity to your mind and can especially bring energy to the functions of the brain. We all want peace of mind and diamonds are there to do the dirty work. In the body, diamonds release toxins and restore imbalances and can even help you achieve better sleep.

Messages for Groups

Groups, families, teams, workgroups, or for anywhere there is cooperation involved, diamonds clear a path and bring clarity. Diamonds will bring a clear purpose and vision to your project or even your group trip, allowing you clear passage.

Meanings of Colors: White, Pink, Yellow, Blue, and Brown Types

Love and clarity are at the forefront and brings together partnerships, groups, teams, or bonding relationships at a new level of comprehension and understanding.

How to Find the Message

I really suggest you use your intuition and allow the meanings that hold strongest when reading these keywords and meanings to enlighten you and give definition to what the diamond symbol is referring to. Your higher self, your guardian angels, and your spirit guides may be using diamonds as a symbol to give you a message. They may even use the basic shape of diamond as seen on playing cards to grab your attention. This symbol doesn't have to be a physical gem or stone but a mere drawing. The very act of bringing your attention to diamond may be their way of introducing themselves to you, preparing you for their clear vision and purity as it transfers to you directing your path to brighter tomorrows. Your guides and angels only want the best for you and showing you diamonds is their way of welcoming you into their embrace and absorbing you into their light. May the love and information be abundantly inspiring and give you comfort.

      This is a wonderful summary, and (having first made the right diamond selection based on this charting) a man giving a diamond would do well to include a copy of your Hub with his gift.
