Diamonds have long been a girl’s best friend—unless that girl was on a budget, in which case crystals that look like diamonds were probably her bank account-friendly bestie. But April babies know diamonds are more than just our collective BFF. They’re April’s birthstone. Which makes now the perfect time to stock up on all the diamond jewelry you’ve had your eye on, especially if you (or a clear gem-obsessed loved one) have a birthday coming up.

Need a last-minute gift for a friend born in April? Stock up on diamond jewelry. Need to buy something for a family member you don’t know all that well? Stock up on some (simple! no-fail!) diamond jewelry. Want to treat yourself to some pretty pieces you’ve been eyeing since 2019 started? Make like your birthday’s in April, and stock up on diamond jewelry. You can always find some excuse to buy that necklace, or that bracelet, or those earrings you’ve desperately wanted to add to your closet for a long, long time. But April makes that excuse even easier to come by—even if, by an accident of birth, you find yourself tied to some other stone.

The biggest setback to diamond jewelry shopping is, of course, that diamonds are really fucking expensive. Real ones can run you at least a month’s rent—and we’re talking New York rent, not even the semi-affordable kind. But again, crystals have long offered us all a way to have our cake and eat it, too—in this case, to have beautiful jewelry and maintain good credit, too. Because there are all kinds of genuinely budget-friendly, genuinely beautiful clear gem pieces on offer, just waiting to be snatched up.
