Are Diamonds Forever or Are They “Bullshit”?

The next time you look at a diamond, consider this. Nearly every American marriage begins with a diamond because a bunch of rich white men in the 1940s convinced everyone that its size determines your self worth. They created this convention — that unless a man purchases (an intrinsically useless) diamond, his life is a failure — while sitting in a room, racking their brains on how to sell diamonds that no one wanted.

Desiring a shiny, expensive rock is starting to look real silly to me right now…

How about you?

Do you think diamonds are bullshit?
