A diamond is the hardest on the Mohs hardness scale which measures the hardness of a mineral by its resistance to scratching. But saying a diamond is the hardest is a little deceiving Hardness equals brittleness a diamond can be chipped or cracked very easily when faceted and mounted in a ring. Care for your diamond with regular cleanings and checking the prong tightness regularly by a jeweler. Take off your diamond when working with your hands in household cleaners or with tools .
