Alan Bradley
“Vaporized by the sun! Wasn't that what the universe had in store for all of us? There would come a day when the sun exploded like a red balloon, and everyone on earth would be reduced in less than a camera flash to carbon. Didn't Genesis say as much? For dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return. This was far more than dull old theology: It was precise scientific observation! Carbon was the Great Leveler--the Grim Reaper.

Diamonds were nothing more than carbon, but carbon in a crystal lattice that made it the hardest known mineral in nature. That was the way we all were headed. I was sure of it. We were destined to be diamonds!”
Alan Bradley, The Weed That Strings the Hangman's Bag

Jeannette Walls

“… the river sliding along its banks, darker now than the sky descending a last time to scatter its diamonds into these black waters that contain the day that passed, the night to come.

“...that familiar whisper hovered over his spirit, the same impression pounding, pulsing. Pay attention. Pay attention.

He nearly groaned. He had trouble enough at his doorstep right now, given the diamonds even now being set In gold and the ruthless women out to claim them. The last thing he needed was the distraction of a needy young lady....and a generation old feud coming to call.”

Jenny Proctor, How to Kiss Your Best Friend

Jennifer Egan
“He decided to take the C downtown and fumbled through blizzardy wind to Central Park West. Once there, he stepped inside the park. The wind dropped magically away. In the stillness, Gregory noticed that every twig and branch held a delicate stack of snow. Snow swarmed like honeybees in the golden glow of the old-fashioned streetlamps; it slathered tree trunks and sparkled like crushed diamonds at his feet. He heard a whispering noise and saw two people glide from among the trees on cross-country skis. A lavender lunar radiance filled the park. It was a world from childhood: castles and forests and magic lamps and princes scaling walls of brambles.”
Jennifer Egan, The Candy House

Nenia Campbell
“It was difficult finding jewelry for you,” he remarked. “You’re too beautiful for diamonds. They’re meant to add light and you’re already blinding. So I got you something that gives off no light at all, so the jewelry will bask in your own enchanting glow.”
Nenia Campbell, Rent Girl

“लोगो को हिरे परखने की आदत होती है,
अच्छा हुआ कुछ लोगो ने हमें पथ्हर समजा,
जज्बातों के घाव बहने लगे तो होश आया,
पत्थरो का काम हीरो को सजाना था।”
Sonal Takalkar

Samantha Verant
“This is my cat, Juju," the woman says, noting my obvious confusion, maybe even my fear. "He's my good luck charm."
"Uh, yeah," I say, backing away ever so slightly. That's some collar.
I love the rhinestones. Trés chic."
"Rhinestones? Don't be silly. I buy all his accessories from a jeweler. His collar is from Catier. As they say, diamonds are a cat's best friend."
My upper lip twitches. Nobody has ever said that. And I'm pretty sure she means Cartier.
She blows the cat a kiss, and I swear, if cats could smile, this one does, his giant face twisting with love or hunger.
"He's huge," I say, watching his tail flick a bit menacingly.
"He's a rare French breed, a Chartreux. He's just, how do you say? Big-boned?" She chortles out a laugh. "I really should put him on a regime like the vétérinaire said. He weighs nine kilos. Can you believe it? I strain my back when I try to pick him up. But he truly doesn't like les haricots verts or les courgettes. He's quite the gourmand."
My head spins with confusion. I wonder, What cat would like green beans and zucchini? as I convert the math in my head. Her cat weighs around twenty pounds. And, apparently, he hates vegetables but adores his bling.”
Samantha Verant, The Spice Master at Bistro Exotique

Sarah J. Maas
“Crafted of tiny blue gems so pale they were almost white, it clung to every curve and hollow before draping to the floor and pooling like liquid starlight. The long sleeves were tight, capped at the wrists with cuffs of pure diamond. The neckline grazed my collarbones, the modesty of it undone by how the gown hugged areas I supposed a female might enjoy showing off. My hair had been swept off my face with two combs of silver and diamond, then left to drape down my back. And I thought, as I stood alone in my bedroom, that I might have looked like a fallen star.”
Sarah J. Maas, A Court of Mist and Fury

“The best parts of ourselves, our kindness and our empathy and our diamonds, should be on display always, so that we can make the most of them.”
