Women & Diamonds

“The Diamonds are a girl’s best friend” is one of the most iconic phrase that is known around the world, it was first introduced by Carol Channing in the original Broadway production of “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes”, but it become world wide famous when Marilyn Monroe played the film with the same title in 1953. Since then, the phrase become an iconic word with a hidden message for every men.

The meaning is “if you wish to find your way into the woman’s heart” it will happen with a nice diamond. I work in the diamond industry over 17 years as a sales consultant and I could not find any better phrase that will top this one.

The reason for it is very simple, it is true as millions of man noticed over the years, this is the reason that engagement rings become a “standard” for the “act” that is to ask the girl to marry you the gentleman. This short story from the original Broadway play changed the world of diamonds for ever, the only thing from the show that is not true is “gentlemen prefer blondes” as the diversity of beautiful women covers the whole spectrum of color very respectfully.
