While diamond jewelry has been around since 300 BCE, the diamond ring wasn't initially recorded until much later, the late 1300's. It wasn't until 1477 when diamonds were first thought to be used in engagement rings when the Archduke Maximillian of Austria was purportedly the very first person to commission an engagement ring featuring a diamond for his precious Mary of Burgundy. His actions sparked a trend all across Europe that would go on to span centuries and influence generations. Queen Victoria's famed love for all things diamond helped cement the popularity of its usage in jewelry, with the greatest attention brought to the most ostentatious and ornate pieces.
