It's from the song Marilyn Monroe sang in "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes". If you listen to the lyrics it explains it. It says that men come and go, but diamonds will stay with you forever. Here: [i]A kiss on the hand May be quite continental, But diamonds are a girl's best friend. A kiss may be grand But it won't pay the rental On your humble flat Or help you at the automat. Men grow cold As girls grow old, And we all lose our charms in the end. But square-cut or pear-shaped, These rocks don't loose their shape. Diamonds are a girl's best friend.[/i] etc.!

I can't say it's a clue and I'm not a woman either So this is just a pure guess. Maybe because diamonds really looks good when on woman's soft skin. Also diamonds tend to last forever as women tend to always say their love is (?)

i think quite awhile ago when it was important for a woman to be married the diamond symbolized that she was about to get married and ready to have her husband take care of her. such is definitely NOT the case here anymore!
