About This Quiz

Even though diamonds are one of the hardest substances in the world, we've still managed to master cutting them into some pretty impressive stones to be used in jewelry. In fact, diamond cutting goes back to the Middle Ages. Before then, diamonds were only used in their raw, natural state which, if you've never seen one, isn't that impressive. Once the understanding of how to cut them became common knowledge, the industry really took off. In fact, the first diamond-cutting guild was established in 1375.

By the 17th century, we'd mastered how to make brilliant cuts, those diamonds that have 17 facets on the crown and things kept progressing from there. Now we have at least 10 standard cuts of diamonds for the average rings to suit whatever your whims and tastes may be. And while it's often the budget that will most affect what cut of diamond is right for you, what if there was more to it than that? Surely the stars have something to say about this, don't they? If astrology can help you figure out everything else in your life, then no doubt there has to be a diamond that matches up with your zodiac, right? If you're not sure, take the quiz and see!
