What do you all think?
What do you all think?
This has been posted numerous times. And these threads never go well…
That article pops up on here (and other social media sites) from time to time. The diamond lovers have their opinion, the diamond haters have their opinion. I don’t think either opinion stands a chance of being swayed anytime soon, regardless of articles for either side.
was this article written by a high school student? it is terrible.
Ahh… this might be interesting.
I love my diamonds.
Saying that, do i think poor women and children should be forced into slave labour to mine them? No. But there’s issues like that all over the world and it’s not limited to diamonds.
I don’t like how the article (and many like it) treat purchasing a diamond and saving money for other things as mutually exclusive. We could afford to buy a diamond, AND still put large sums of money into savings for our “nest egg”
This article and many others like it always come off as someone who’s angry they didn’t get/couldn’t afford a diamond to be hoenst. I don’t see why anyone cares if other people buy them or not.
@Sunnybrook: I think you will get some pretty heated discussion out of this lol I personally do not prefer diamonds. I could afford a large one but why? I have so many other/better things to spend my money on. However, they are beautiful and I do not judge anyone that has them. I even ohh and ahhh over them but I can’t see myself spending that kind of money when in reality there is a gem I love more. I love seeing other stones on here that people use as engagement rings because I love individuality 🙂
Nothing good will come of this..
Oh dear… Not again…
if it bought diamonds back from customers, it would have to buy them back at wholesale prices.
I also hope this is wrong:
American males enter adulthood through a peculiar rite of passage – they spend most of their savings on a shiny piece of rock.
Yawn… repeat performance.
This topic has been posted oodles of times !!
I LOVE my Diamonds… I went with a CONFLICT FREE / CANADIAN option, so I can sleep at night.
There are alternatives to Diamonds… but there are also ALTERNATIVE DIAMONDS… one needs to do their homework.
Seriously, this article…again…
Blah blah blah, old news frankly. If someone wants to buy a diamond – great. If not – great.
