The demand for diamonds is high because people want them. Because of their rarity they have become known to symbolize much more than just a clear rock. Many people see a diamond as a means of telling their loved one that their love will last as long as the diamond although diamonds do not really last forever. Even diamonds will decay after a certain period of time. Other people just want them for it's symbolism of riches. There are many rocks that can duplicate the appearance of a diamond in jewelry.

Because of itz behaviour to light and itz hardness.
Biggest value addition is in cutting and polishing.
It has both ornamental as well as industrial utility.

Scarcely available after digging deep, sometimes after digging for years not a single stone is found. Then its chiselling is also a work of great expertise;; hence precious.
