Yes, I have wondered. Then I saw a documentary on how slave labor and digging deep into the earth.
Fortunately, diamonds are not one of my favourites in the gemnological world, so the expense doesn't matter.
They are a little like mushrooms aren't they....grown in the dark.
I don't know but I'm with Marilyn, "Diamonds are a girl's best friend." Square cut or pear shaped, these rocks don't lose their shape..... diamonds are a girl's best friend.
ha ha, this wasn't supposed to go up, I don't know how it happened...I have a draft in the works...Susan Kane; my coming article has nothing to do with slave labour, although I'm sure that still goes on. And shouldn't.Elephant's Child; I like them, but don't buy them. I have only one tiny diamond gifted to me by my mother for my 40th birthday. I almost need a microscope to see it.Delores; way down in the deepest dark.Manzanita; I like the baguette shape best and I don't believe diamonds are a girl's best friend. SUNSCREEN is a girl's best friend. diamonds are second best.
I do like diamonds but of a simple cut...just wish I had more of them.
Mimsie; I'd like a few more too, but I'll probably never buy any, I just don't wear jewellery apart from my watch and the sleepers in my ears. I do have seasonal things, like all the brooches and earrings I wear at Christmas, but none of it is "real". What I'd really like is the money to be able to afford diamonds.
