I think this argument is better suited for the threads it is targeting. No need to create new dramatic threads aimed at attacking the other side…

@crayfish: Agreed. And for the record, not once did I say someone was terrible for their choice if they chose a diamond. The whole thread was ME venting that I’m sick of defending my choice for a non diamond when people ask why and I say personal and ethical reasons. If it makes you feel bad then that’s on you. ^_^

I think it’s completely fine to have a separate thread voicing your opinions.

@kfricke89: Who are you defending it to? I never attacked you or called you a terrible person.

I was venting about SOME women that feel like anything but a diamond is fake and he doesn’t love you. I was talking about how SOME women feel the need to tell other women, “oh, that’s okay…you can always upgrade to a diamond later.” I was talking about how SOME women feel the need to ASK why you didn’t choose a diamond and then get PISSED when you say it’s personal and ethical. I wasn’t attacking those who have family diamonds or just don’t care about the ethics. I do, but if you don’t then I don’t care.

But hey, if you fall within the above group, then yeah…I was bitching about you.
Again, I never said EVERY WOMAN with a diamond ring is terrible.

Did you see the post by that Boston person? Yeah, she was the type of woman I was bitching about. She said everyone who chose not to have a diamond are really just poor and too scared to admit it because there is no such thing as a non diamond engagement ring. So, if you have the same opinion then you can be offended.

@kfricke89: I posted on Miss Tattoos thread and she was not being defensive towards those with diamond e-rings. I have a diamond e-ring and I took ZERO offense to her post. 

Sorry, I dont want to start drama, I just want to tell it like it is…

I have no issues with diamonds.  I love my diamond.  I originally wanted a star sapphire (still really do), but only because I really like them.  FH really wanted the diamond.  I will never find the need to justify our choice as it is our choice.

@Miss Tattoo: but…but………if you’re sick of defending your choice WHY create a thread about it, when all of us have seen what always happens in these threads?? 

Perhaps my opinion will be taken as trolling cause i only have just over a 100 posts, but in the 2 months i’ve been lurking/stalking/occasionaly posting on the bee i’ve NEVER seen a thread like yours NOT turn into a multi-paged monster.  So really, if what you’re sick of is defending your choice, then why post in the first place? 

This isn’t meant as a personal attack – i’m actually asking.
