THE THINGS JEWELRY STORES DON'T TELL YOU
Diamonds Are Abundant Contrary To Jewelry Stores Making Us Believe That They Are Scarce.
They are basically monopolized by The De Beers cartel that keeps them in safe houses just to create an artificial scarcity. They are basically just a fine stone. They are artificially expensive and can be bought in many African countries as low as $15 for one carat. They have zero resale value, the only reason it claims they are forever is that one is essentially stuck with it.

Diamond switching doesn’t happen on a daily basis; however, experts say you are not suspicious of what goes on in their back room. People most times are unaware of what they have; they don’t even know how to differentiate it from man-made stones.
Your Warranty Is Not Firm
They offer a lifetime warranty on their rings in cities and college towns knowing women won’t be there for much longer or remember to have their ring checked biannually. Students move in and out of a location within some years, which in that time would have rendered the warranty invalid. This way the store makes so much money.
