Happy birthday, April babies! I know I’m coming from a place of bias when I say this (I’m an April baby myself), but I think April is the best month of the year. This is probably why we got stuck with a lame birthstone—if we had a really cool one, it just wouldn’t be fair to everyone born in the 11 lesser months.

Even though diamonds aren’t as flashy as March’s aquamarines or as pretty as October’s opals, they’re still very beautiful… In their own colorless sort of way. And the following 12 pieces of diamond jewelry? Well, they’re unarguably pretty… And surprisingly affordable. Happy shopping, and happy birthday!

Gloss reader NYCNanny clued me into Chloe and Isabel jewelry, and I’m so glad she did, because their work is gorgeous—and really affordable. If you showed me this ring and asked me to guess its price, I’d be throwing out a number a hell of a lot higher than $34.

I’m a sucker for anything I can customize, and this morse code cuff is no exception. When you place your order, BaubleBar’s website will prompt you to choose your first initial, and the diamond pattern on your cuff will symbolize the Morse code dots and lines that make up that letter.
