It's not that diamonds are very rare…

Yeah but DeBeers has countless millions of carats of gem quality diamonds stockpiled in their vaults in order to create a false rarity on the market. They release little batches of them when need be.

@joya_aspera:  Yes, and colored diamonds (natural) are one in 10,000 <3 diamonds <3

People can hate on diamonds all they want. Personally I have always loved and will continue to love diamonds.

I’m not that knowledgable about diamond rarity, but the other day I got to see three large natural alexandrites with exceptional blue-to-red color change quality. I was informed that they’ll probably be the *only* natural ones of the that quality I’ll ever see in my lifetime. Now that is really rare!

@joya_aspera:  All it says it that DeBeers paid them off, but admitted no fault. It doesn’t say anything about the monopoly or cartels being broken, nor that their stock piles have been released.

Investment quality are rare, these are like 20 carat and flawless and people do not wear them.

jewelry quality are still fairly common, just think of all the supplies at all the jewelry stores around.

Why do people always feel the need to come on here and “educate” others about the rarity or lack thereof of diamonds. Really, does anyone even care?

If you don’t care, then don’t read a thread about the rarity of diamonds. Obviously enough people do care to have a conversation about it.
