Let’s have a thread about why everything is awesome, and why you love it, with no negative comparisons to anything else. Shiny rocks are great! You can like all of them! For all of the reasons!
Natural stones: Made from billions of years of random stuff coming together under pressure and making something beautiful. That’s freaking awesome.
Lab stones: People figured out how to make pretty rocks with science. Also freaking awesome.
Diamonds: Super hard, super shiny, with a beautiful range of cool to warm shades for the white stones, plus a bunch of other colors. So difficult to make, not even science can do it perfect in the bigger sizes. Which makes the lab ones they do make pretty damn cool too.
Moissanite: Science took some specks in a space rock and turned it into rainbow-tastic awesome.
CZ: Have you seen how many colors it comes in? The answer is all of them. All of them in clear, sparkly, affordable awesomeness. Some places even specialize in super high quality cuts for added amazeballs.
Clear stones: Ain’t nothing stopping those sparkles. Get ready for a light show.
Included stones: Inclusions can add more depth and individuality to a stone’s look. Colors can look lovely and velvety. They can make cool patterns. You can get a hunk of one color inside of another color, which is awesome.
Garnets: My birthstone and my true love. Though it comes in several shades, my heart will always belong to the deep, glowing red. I may cheat on it every now and then with other stones, but I always end up going back.
Okay, y’all’s turn. Be as general or specific as you like, just don’t bash anything.
