In ancient times people believed that diamonds were thunderbolts which became lodged in the earth. Revered for their strength they were worn by soldiers in battle to protect them from harm and ensure victory in battle - the word diamond itself comes from the Greek word "adamas" meaning unconquerable.

What better symbol is there for everlasting love and a lifetime of commitment than a diamond engagement ring . At Chisholm Hunter we have a wide range of breath-taking diamond rings as beautiful and unique as your romance.
