I don’t understand why people take videos of their rings – I realize that they’re showing how sparkly they are…is that the only reason or am I missing something?
PS this isn’t meant to be rude, I’ve just seen a few of those and it’s got me scratching my head.

@Ryansgirl: LOL…I feel the same way. Although I remember someone posting one of their moissanite ring – that one was aimed at being helpful to someone who wasn’t sure about the “sparkle” quality of moissanite.
As for the rest…I have no idea.

Beats me! I never understood it either.

I don’t understand that. A pic…yes…a video…no

That sounds a bit odd. I’ve never seen anybody do that. I could only assume it might be to show off a ring that is cut to enhance how sparkly it is.

I think it is to show the sparkle factor. I’ve never done it though.

Maybe they are like me and cant take a decent ring photo to save their lives! 😛
Naw, I wouldnt do a video- it would probably look grainy and like those videos of big foot.

lol, I just thought it was…interesting. Anyway I’m glad I’m not the only one who finds it different.
(Notice how I’m using politically correct words like interesting and different…lol)

I never understood it either, but I guess if you are questioning what a certain type of stone looks like in the light, it could capture it better than a picture.

This. But although I haven’t made one myself, I really enjoy watching the larger diamond videos too So shoot me 🙂

I can see the point of pictures. But videos stump the heck out of me. I dont get the point either.

I looked up ring videos when I was trying to decide which stone I wanted, so I’m glad that women do it! Even without the “higher purpose” of educating viewers, though, I really don’t see how taking a photo is any more justified than taking a video. I don’t think either one is weird, by the way, I just don’t see a huge difference between the two. Isn’t the point of both just showing off the ring?
