    I’m a woman without diamonds…because I don’t care for diamonds. I have my plain white-gold band…that’s all I needed.

    now, eyewear is like jewelry stores. one italian company makes the eyewear, sells the eyewear, the optometrists who prescribed the lenses, the vision insurance for those prescriptions, and even the sunglasses(from the designer brands to generics).

    A woman without diamonds is like her man with money and no “blood diamonds” guilt-trip….

    You beat me to it! Diamonds are not rare stones. Nor have they always been the traditional symbol of marriage. (kind of like how a white wedding dress was never meant to signify the “condition” of the bride") I guess we’re just suckers for marketing.

    No, it represents the known fact that Opus has no sales resistance.
    Also, Opus has finally found a use for the “turnips twaddlers” he has bought in the past. He can use them to twaddle that salesman’s turnip nose.

    Unlike my mother, I am not interested in fine jewelry. Prefer inexpensive leather bands, hand woven friendship bracelets. Maybe something artsy or hand made.

    There’s a lot of beautiful gemstones out there, but women expect a diamond on their finger, and only a colorless one, even though diamonds come in all colors. This started when a British princess had one at her engagement, shown by the British press, and now everyone wanted one. Demand was also pushed be DeBeers of South Africa. The price of colorless diamonds skyrocketed, and any other color is industrial-grade.

    I guess I’m lucky that my wife doesn’t care for diamonds. Emeralds and sapphires, on the other hand….
