The pricing of Diamonds is huge fraud. Except for rare examples of size and color there is no shortage of them. The sales, and thus the value of them is carefully managed to give the impression that they are rare and valuable, where in fact they are plentiful and would be relatively inexpensive.
You are not buying a diamond, you are buying sentiment. Unfortunately woman are more susceptible to consider that a good monetary investment.
