Pretty much YUP. One should not look at a diamond as an investment, but rather as something they want to purchase and have for the rest of their life and to pass down as a family heirloom.

Agreed. We didn’t purchase a diamond as an investment.

Also, I’m surprised this didn’t get any responses when it was first posted. I’m always down for a shitshow.

So… don’t get a diamond. Problem solved. Jewelry was never intended to be an investment (at least in the US, though gold, when bought for investment purposes and not for wearing, can be okay). 

But, yeah, this is a three week old thread that had no replies. Why dig it up? We buy diamonds because they’re pretty. Clothing, cars, technology, medications – all of it has insane markups, yet no one declares #%^& the technology companies and gives up their phone and computer.

To be fair, I don’t think anyone is buying an engagement ring as an investment.  I mean, yes, the markup is total BS.  But you have other diamond buying options without the insane markeups, or go non-diamond.  Otherwise, you’re buying a diamond at inflated BS cost because you want to buy the pretty sparkly diamond.
