.....for engagements (token of love)
.....costly (why not pay for glass)
.....a rock (shinny little things)
.....stupid (used to be auction after divorce)
..... Valentines gift (sure thing to make a woman cry)


Valuable lesson #1, Get married, divorce, then on the second marriage purposeful you always pay more for your diamond rings. The man didn't get it right the first time, lets spend more money. That will do the trick. Admit it men, we are dumb.

Valuable lesson #2, stay classy after a divorce so you get a better looking wife the 2nd time.

"Donald Trump. “I always told him the size doesn't matter, Marla Maples said about the 7.5 carat emerald cut Harry Winston diamond that Donald Trump gave her in 1991. “It's the symbolism.” Nine years, after Maples and Trump were divorced, she put the $250,000 ring up for auction. “While it's rather tacky,” “she's a very nice person. I hope she does well with the sale.” She did, Donald's “symbol” fetched $110,000 at auction."

"costly (why not pay for glass)"

Folks need to remember firstly that the markup on jewelry is really high. It's no different than a car, once driven off the lot, the value plummets way, way down there. Say you buy a 14k gold, 5ct diamond ring for 3,000 (just guestimating). Take it somewhere and try to sell it. Unless the stone is large and really spectacular, you aren't going to get much if anything for it. They'll throw it on a scale and pay you for raw materials, mainly the gold. Unless the stones are large and over the top exquisite, the majority of jewel merchants aren't going to be interested in the stone at all. It's what they have to do to the stone to get it looking fantastic that drives the cost out of sight. They don't come out of the earth glistening, and every time a process is performed, cha-ching. The processes including cutting, repeated acid washes, heating, etc. which are caustic and can be dangerous, and THAT is what you are paying for. So if you're thinking of it as an investment for a rainy day, you're going to be very disappointed. I say be smart and buy a used one, have it cleaned and have the setting checked and put it in a nice box. Take the savings and put it towards a car or a home. This crap about having to spend so much money on an engagement ring to be "proper" (I read a set figure somewhere) is nonsense. The Royal jewels are hundreds of years old and they don't have any problem wearing them because they have been worn by someone else and they are still beautiful. Besides, nobody needs to know if you bought the ring used. Sorry ladies.
