I’ve just stumbled over a three-year old blog post by Rohin Dhar. Before you read it, please take two things into mind:
- Someone else’s blog post about diamond rings does not devalue the sentiment and meaning in your own.
- The article is about diamond rings, not rings or symbols you exchange in a wedding ceremony. This is all about the diamond.
A quote from the article:
Diamonds are not actually scarce, make a terrible investment, and are purely valuable as a status symbol.
Diamonds, to put it delicately, are bullshit.
