No pressure, no diamonds.
A single stone of diamond, no matter how big or small, has been through much more work than you might think. It starts off by first forming into natural gemstones deep within the earth’s mantle where intense heat – above 1,000 degrees Celsius – and tremendous pressure exceeding 725, 000 pounds per square inch fuse together carbon atoms into natural diamonds we extract today. But the process doesn’t stop there; the diamond then has to be cut, polished and graded before it is placed on a piece of jewellery. Some diamonds even take years before it’s ready to be seen!
Just like diamonds, we too go through great journeys before we’re transformed into better, stronger and refined versions of ourselves. After experiencing everything from stress to failures, we’ve blazed through them and are more accomplished in so many ways.
In conjunction with International Women’s Day, DeGem and FEMALE are ending the month with strong women! Shining the spotlight on two very strong women who have have overcome different struggles to achieve what they have set forth today, we talk to Ellie E.
