If a quadrilateral verifies that property then the middle points of both diagonals are a single point (applaying Euler's theorem for quadrilaterals), and this implies that it is a paralelogram.

Euler:
D^2+d^2 = a^2+b^2+c^2+d^2+4MN
where MN is the segment uniting the middle points of both diagonals.

Also for the theorem of cosine it is very easy to show that each paralalogram verifies that property.
