Detailed dream meaning
Because diamonds are symbols of great value, dreams in which a diamond shop occur suggest that you are being presented with a rare or valuable opportunity that has the potential to change your life for the better. This is particularly true if in your dream you have the financial resources to be able to choose any diamond that appeals to you. Underlying this dream of bounty, however, is a caution to be discerning when identifying those things that are most precious to you. If you lack the financial resources to be able to afford a diamond then it implies that you can see those things which you treasure most, but may lack the emotional stability or maturity to incorporate them in your life. Other blockages, such as the store being closed, indicate that you have shut yourself away from some source of support and need to focus on finding a way to redirect your energy.
Dreams in which you put a diamond on layaway or hold signify that you acknowledge that you need to prepare for the future in order to attain financial rewards. It also may be an indication that you need to lower your expectations to better attain your goals.
Dreams in which you are desiring or searching for a diamond in your dream signify that you are unfulfilled on some level and are searching for a way to gain control or meaning in your life. It is particularly important in these dreams to focus on the circumstances surrounding your search. The kind of jewelry you are searching for will direct you as to the area in which you need to focus. Earrings, for example, may indicate that you need to listen to the advice of someone precious to you while a bracelet may indicate that you need the labor of your own hands to realize your ambitions. A dream in which you are looking for a diamond with another person can also be particularly telling. These dreams signify some sort of partnership or counsel is necessary.
Searching for a specific diamond in a shop or having a piece of jewelry custom made indicates that you are aware of what you want and are looking for a way to achieve it through your own design.
Pawning a diamond in a shop signifies that you have experienced a great personal crisis like a loss of a job or the end of a marriage or love relationship in which the things that you hold dear are being lost to you. This dream may also serve as a warning that you are jeopardizing what you treasure most by selling your values out for something of lesser worth. Similarly, if you are in a diamond shop to have your diamond appraised, it implies that you are questioning the direction of your life and wondering if the things you thought were important are worth the effort it takes to achieve them. If you discover in this appraisal that your diamond is fake, then it is a sign that you need to reevaluate your core values. The things that you treasure may be superficial and shallow, and you feel the need to find something authentic.
This dream is in association with the following scenarios in your life
- A mid-life crisis.
- Graduating from college.
- A change in financial status.
