housebee:  exactly. If luxury was accessible, affordable, and neccessary there’d be no *speshul snowflake* appeal. THATS what youre paying for.

Here here!  Let’s talk about things that are a real rip off.  “The truth about buy a new car” “the truth about leasing a car” “the truth about buying clothing from the mall”.  Every one seems to pick on diamonds as the “big rip off”.  i dont care, I love it!

All luxury items are rip offs, it’s part of what makes it a luxury item.

MrsBuesleBee:  that’s how I feel. I’m guessing that many of the moissanite haters are intimidated because there is finally a really good quality diamond alternative hitting the market. 

some people mention that if/when moissy goes down in price, it will lose its appeal too. maybe? who knows. I still want one anyway. I only care about the look and quality, not how much something actually cost.

I wasn’t able to watch the video, but I skimmed through the Huffington Post article.  While it brings up interesting points, I roll my eyes at how these type of articles keep reiterating diamonds are a bad investment.  I don’t know about you, but if I’m going to buy a pair of diamond earrings, my 1st thought isn’t going to be, “I’m am going to make a profit out of these!”.

This really isn’t anything most of the people on Wedding Bee don’t already know.

Who thinks of diamonds as an investment, or any other jewelry for that matter? I own pretty jewelry because I like wearing them, they’re not going to increase in value! It’s like calling a Wolf stove an investment. Of course it’s not, but it doesn’t mean I don’t want one in my kitchen.
