    I said other, although it’s really neither. They don’t symbolise anything to me other than as mentioned above a successful mass marketing campaign. I have a non-diamond e-ring.

    Diamonds represent my value to the giver.

    Just kidding. I like pretty things. There are plenty of gems I prefer but I chose diamonds for daily wear because they are durable, I use my hands, I don’t take off my jewelry and I’m not always careful. 

    Diamonds = durability…probably not a snappy ad campaign.

    MissMul :  Haha, thanks!  To me, all types of engagement rings (diamond, moissanite, other gemstone, stoneless) symbolize love/commitment equally, but a bigger diamond symbolizes higher status/more money.  Of course, this isn’t always accurate – it’s just what pops into my mind!

    I think engagement rings symbolize love and commitment. However, feel diamonds in general usually symbolize status. I do not have an engagment ring yet. Though… do find my self pulling away from the diamonds for that reason. Yes, my boyfriend could afford a huge rock, but why should our commitment be based on others opinions? Do I want him to go cheap? No. As I feel it’s one time for him to splurge and think of me. Do I want him to go overboard? No. I don’t want a rock the size of a nickle but then can’t afford to go on an amazing honeymoon. However, everyone prioritizes differently and that is what makes every relationship special and unique! Some love nice things, some love nice experiences!

    I think a diamond engagement ring symbolizes commitment & the intent to invest in something precious  (marriage) and highly sought after (a great marriage). There’s even a nod to how hard yet beautiful marriage is. That’s why I think diamonds are the most appropriate for engagement rings.

    Longevity. That was my answer from just reading the thread title anyway. They’re durable, expensive, and you’d want to keep it a long time. Also they’re often for engagement rings, heirloom stones, or other nice jewelry- so, longevity. 

    That ad is gross.

    MissMul :  Diamonds in particular do not really symbolize anything to me except maybe financial status since they can be so much pricier? I have a diamond ering (I told Darling Husband I didn’t care and would take a CZ, but it was important to him that it was diamond). It’s less the stone and more the ring itself that symbolizes love and commitment to me.

    MissMul :  I voted other because diamonds symbolize nothing to me. I have a sapphire engagement ring. Sapphires in general don’t symbolize anything to me either though, I just think they are beautiful. Of course, MY sapphire symbolizes a great deal to me – my husband’s love for me, our marriage, his desire to make me happy

    I’m not a huge fan of diamonds. They symbolize “overpriced” and “boring” to me.

    The diamond itself doesn’t symbolize anything to me either. I picked my diamond out because it was pretty and because, ironically, I don’t wear/am not really fussed about having real diamonds in my other jewelry, so I liked the idea of having my engagement ring be the only real diamond I wear, if that makes sense.
