Welcome to Music Friday when we bring you awesome new songs with jewelry, gemstones or precious metals in the title or lyrics. Today, RaeLynn — who is best known as a finalist in Season 2 of The Voice — sings about how an engagement ring embodies a lifelong pledge of love and devotion in her 2016 release, "Diamonds."

In the song, RaeLynn acknowledges that diamonds are exciting, but explains that nothing can compare to receiving a diamond engagement ring from the one you love.

She sums up her feelings in the chorus of "Diamonds"... "Cause a diamond's just a diamond til you put it on the right left hand / Love is just a word til you feel it and finally understand / That some things don't mean anything til one day they mean everything / And you're flyin', smilin' and shinin' / Kinda like diamonds / Kinda like diamonds."

The 22-year-old RaeLynn, whose given name is Racheal Lynn Woodward, told The Knot how her October 2015 engagement to Josh Davis inspired her to write the song.

"The day after I got engaged, I was looking at my engagement ring and how beautiful it was," she said. "And all I could think about was how much Josh meant to me — and that this ring would just be a ring without him. What makes it so special is it sealed a promise to the man I love for the rest of my life."

The couple wed in February of 2016.

“When you meet the right one, you have to go with it,” RaeLynn told The Knot. “Love is real. Love is the greatest gift God could give us. Just like ‘Thing About Us’ was my [wedding] song with Josh, I hope maybe ‘Diamonds’ can be your wedding song [someday].”

"Diamonds" is the eighth track from RaeLynn's soon-to-be released album WildHorse. The single hit the airwaves last week and the album is set to drop on December 2.

The singer/songwriter from Baytown, Texas, auditioned for the second season of The Voice in 2012. As a member of Team Blake, she made it all the way to the quarterfinals before being eliminated. In June of this year, RaeLynn signed a new record deal with Warner Bros. Nashville.

She named her upcoming album WildHorse because the album's tracks reflect RaeLynn's carefree spirit and unconventional way of looking at life. The album is a retrospective of her past four years, a roller-coaster ride that saw her graduate from high school, move away from her parents, fall in love, have her heart broken, fall in love again, get engaged and then marry the man of her dreams.

In October of 2015, RaeLynn showed off her beautiful marquise-shaped diamond engagement ring in a series of romantic Instagram posts. She captioned one of the pics, "Can’t believe I get to marry my best friend. Ahhhhhhhh."

We hope you enjoy RaeLynn's newest release. The video and lyrics are below...

"Diamonds"
Written by Emily Weisband, Jimmy Robbins and RaeLynn. Performed by RaeLynn.

There's one sittin' in a pawn shop, glass counter, someone down in California traded it for a TV
Another one in a pretty blue box somewhere up in New York, white ribbon, Tiffany's
One's catchin' dust in a drawer in a dresser at your grandma's house that's been there since 1953
But honestly

A diamond's just a diamond til you put it on the right left hand
Love is just a word til you feel it and finally understand
That some things don't mean anything til one day they mean everything
And you're flyin', smilin' and shinin'
Kinda like diamonds
Kinda like diamonds

I ain't saying they aren't pretty and the way they feel doesn't feel just like an answer to a little girls dream
Ain't saying they ain't fun to show off to your friends and get the chills when you hear them scream
But if your hearts not in it, forget it

Cause a diamond's just a diamond til you put it on the right left hand
Love is just a word til you feel it and finally understand
That some things don't mean anything til one day they mean everything
And you're flyin', smilin' and shinin'
Kinda like diamonds
Kinda like diamonds

I don't need one just to hold on to
I don't want one unless it comes with you

Cause a diamond's just a diamond til you put it on the right left hand
Love is just a word til you feel it and finally understand
That some things don't mean anything til one day they mean everything
And you're flyin', smilin' and shinin'
Kinda like diamonds
Kinda like diamonds
