@Frankii Moissanite is colorless. Here is another pic of mine. It looks just like a diamond. Everyone I show my moissy to thinks it`s a diamond, including jewelers, so I do not exactly see the point in spending thousands of dollars on one sparkly clear rock instead of buying and another sparkly clear rock for significantly less.

Thanks for the info Davy. I`ll be sure to let my girlfriend read it! I also listened to an interesting speaker talk about the price of diamonds being fixed by the dealers, not the consumer. If you were to find a massive haul of diamond, the top companies would simply devalue all of their stock of that type of stone, rendering yours worthless!

Davy, no apologies necessary. You opened my typical female "OMGDIAMONDZ!!11!!1" eyes to information I was not previously aware of, and certainly changes my perspective. Same goes for Pui`s info she provided. Just further sickens me what marketing can do to our minds and how important it is to do your research.
I will fully admit I`m like a magpie... "Ooooh shiny!" But at the same time, I`m not a delicate girl and thus am not easy on my jewelry. If I do ever get engaged, if the guy can spend a lower amount yet get higher quality and strength out of the materials for a ring, I`m all about it. What he spends doesn`t equate to his love for me.

Preach on, Davy! People should know the truth about this racket. Good stuff, and you didn`t even broach the topic of conflict diamonds from Africa.
Recently, I`ve seen ads on TV for "chocolate diamonds". I assume these are the "brown" diamonds you mentioned. Brilliant marketing, tying together two things most women love: diamonds and chocolate!

Even knowing all the stuff about diamonds not being that rare etc. I`d still rather have a diamond. I don`t really like coloured stones, especially for an engagement ring

I actually found that rant very informative Davy. thanks for the heads up about white gold, I had always wondered about that. I was going to buy "champagne diamonds" for my girlfriend but I`m glad I didn`t now. :D

Hell, even my own engagement ring (which my work is makinf for me) isn`t going to have diamonds. Amethyst and Zircon, which has about three times the brilliance of Diamonds for about a third of the price, and like Davy suggested, also getting it made in platinum.

I`m 100% with Davy. I work for a jewellery company and see and play with diamonds, amongst other gems every day. Diamonds ain`t nothing special!!

I`m going to do the best that I can, Davy, to not make a joke about your sexuality in light of the reveal of your hobby. Instead, I am going to say, "QUINT POST WTF. I WISH MY NAME WAS RED!" and "Oh, that was pretty informative."

/rant, I`ve gone on too long. Apologies for Quin post, hope I didn`t bore too many people (hey, it`s a subject that interests me personally). And don`t even get me STARTED on recent entrant Tanzanite, which is just zoisite (one of the most common minerals around) that happens to be purple. You wanna know what zoisite is used for? Mainly as a trace additive in laundry detergent. Think about that...

3) "Champagne Diamonds". Diamonds were traditionally valued (in part) based on their colour. Pure colourless diamonds are the rarest and most valuable, sliding down the scale towards slightly yellow diamonds, light brown diamonds, etc, until you get to the valueless poo that`s used to coat industrial drill-bits. But wait! Now diamond manufacturers have actually managed to convince people, through nothing but a fancy marketing term, to buy "Champagne Diamonds", "Cognac Diamonds" and "Coffee Diamonds", and even to pay a mark-up as if they were something unique and special because they have a sassy name. They don`t. They`re the sh*t that would have been thrown in the grinder 10 years ago, but some schmoozer marketing type made up a funky name for them. Now they can go for higher values than perfectly colourless, Class D diamonds.

2) "White Gold` is just an alloy of gold and silver (it`s basically manufactured electrum), which jewelry makers flog at about the same price as "Yellow Gold", as if they are just a matter of personal preference, each being equally valuable. In fact, jewelers can make white gold at a fraction of the price of yellow gold (which, should just be called "gold"), and flog it at a mark-up price because people will always buy into bullsh*t if they`re fed it cleverly enough. You really want a classy white metal? Go for Platinum, at least you`re getting what you`re paying for.

1) Corundum is 9 on the Moh`s scale of hardness. Normally the mineral is used to make the grains of "sand" on an emeery board, for filing a lady`s nails. But when it has just the right amount of trace elements to make it dark blue in colour (and that`s all it is, a change in colour due to imperfections), guess what? It`s called a sapphire. And when trace chemicals make it a deep red colour? Now it`s a ruby. Both of which are rarer than diamonds. If it`s colourless? It`s corundum, an industrial abrasive. Hard sand. BTW, now they`re flogging "pink sapphires", which, by definition, aren`t sapphires.

True dat, and it`s all bullsh*t marketing. In reality, emeralds, rubies and sapphires are much more rare, but diamonds are drip-fed to the consumer market at the behest of De Beers et al. Take it from a geologist.

The gem market is historically bullsh*t marketing anyways, a mix of human perception of beauty and clever marketing by hacks. Indulge me to give a few examples (hey, it`s a pet hobby/peeve of mine.)

Diamonds are pretty, but so are quartz crystals, opals, jasper, turquoise, agate, and all those other beautiful gemstones that are actually more rare.

I agree, I hate diamonds. I think they`re ugly. It is such a waste to spend all that money on a ring, and they couple may even end up divorcing before the ring is even paid off, so this is not what forever looks like. Forever looks like a bald head and sagging breasts hahaha

Get your girl a ring of pure unobtanium instead. It`s much cheaper.

Well, the larger the size of the stone, the bigger the difference. A 1.5ct diamond does cost about 8 times more than my 1.5ct moissy cost.

My FI used the money he saved to take us on a romantic, all inclusive vacation at a luxurious resort down south to propose to me. I`d say that it was a much better use of money. :)

Angillion has a point. Diamond is metastable at surface conditions, and will deteriorate over time. Ironically, zircon and cubic zirconium are forever, while also being responsible for a handful of divorces.

Bitches be shallow.

Just giver her some graphite instead of a diamond, they`re both made of carbon.

If you`re actually looking for stone as a symbol of forever, you`ll choose granite. You can get granite that`s billions of years old and will last more billions of years and that`s as close to forever as you`re going to get with stone.

Pui has already made the key point - diamonds are just the product of the most successful advertising campaign ever, made solely to enable a business to sell small pieces of quite unremarkable stone at vastly inflated prices to make a huge profit.

What does a sparkly rock have to do with love?

What makes a sparkly rock so damn interesting anyways?

I`ll never know... (and will probably never marry, either.)

Diamonds are the product of the most successful advertising campaign of all time. Debeers took a stone that is, in reality, not that rare, not that special and not even that awesome and made it into the symbol of love. Diamonds are associated with love so much, they MEAN love to a lot of people.

I picked a moissanite engagement ring instead. Here is a video of it. Moissanite is almost as hard as a diamond (9.5 on the Mohs scale, a diamond is 10), tougher than a diamond (moissy won`t chip as easily. Yes, diamonds can chip.) and TWICE AS SPARKLY. Yes, you heard me right. Moissanite reflects twice as much light as even the best cut diamond.

My fiance was also able to afford a much bigger stone, 1.5ct equivalent. I have a huge, sparkly rock on my hand that all my friends drool over and it was about an eighth of the price of a diamond. I win. ;)

sounds right to me. why the hell would I buy that when you could put a down payment on a decent home? oh wait, if you can afford this ring, you can probably afford a better house. WRONG. Wake up you materialistic whores and stop digging yourselves into larger debt.
