Birthstone and Flower for April

What is the symbolic meaning of a diamond?

The diamond is LIGHT, life, the SUN; it is an emblem of purity and perfection, of invincible spiritual power, and it is the stone of committment, faithfulness, and promise between husband and wife. Symbol of light and brilliance; unconquerable; treasures, riches, intellectual knowledge.

The April birth flowers are the daisy and the sweet pea

THE DAISY

The daisy conveys innocence, loyal love, and purity.

Yet, it is also a flower given between friends to keep a secret; the daisy means “I’ll never tell.”

THE SWEET PEA

The other April flower is the sweet pea. While sweet peas signify blissful pleasure, on the other hand they are also used to say good-bye.

Perhaps Shakespeare had sweet peas in mind when he wrote the immortal words: “Parting is such sweet sorrow.”

Then too, there are the good-byes we’re glad of, such as saying so long to flies; these insects find the sweet pea’s fragrance offensive and will leave its environs in a hurry.
