While diamonds do rank a 10 out of 10 on the MOHS scale that measures the hardness of gems, they can be broken. Due to the way they grow and crystalize, parts of the stone are weaker; if struck with the right force, this will cause the diamond to separate along that weaker point. The edges of diamonds are particularly vulnerable to chips.
Breaking, yes, diamond has perfect cleavage. Scratching, no.
