They're buying Avocado Toast instead
@Bow To Your Senpai, if only I could pay my bills in avocado toast
@Bow To Your Senpai, let's be real here for a second, avocados just suck
@I Broke Benjamin, woah woah woah.... you don't like guacamole??
@spelcheck , nope
@Bow To Your Senpai, stupid millenials! I pay my bills in diamonds like real adults do
@WelI Obviously, you might not be able to pay your bills but you can buy a house
@I Broke Benjamin, Woah there friend, you might need to slow down
@SimonPetrikov, but you failed to calculate that I can only speed up, to please our graceful Lord Sonic
@WelI Obviously, avocado toast is overrated, fried eggs on toast are better
Because we know they have no real value
@Pvt BB Ghanoush, the only value they have is industrial and the jewelry ones are over inflated by the diamond industry that hordes the diamonds then let's a few out here and there to keep them scarce
@jizzgenerator, capitalism, ammiright?
@Pvt BB Ghanoush, that’s because when you use a diamond to rend the flesh of your enemies, it’s priceless.
Why spend hundreds of dollars on expensive rocks when you can preorder Legendary Gold HD Limited Edition Skyrim Reboot 2017?
@AndorraBall, with paid mods
I'd still rather invest in mutual funds
Because we are playing student loans
Because they're ugly...
I’d rather have a tungsten ring than gold. I’m a dude of course, but I’m hoping my future spouse doesn’t *need* diamonds in her life. They’re a bit of a waste and that money could go into far better uses, like heroin and enriched uranium.
I paid $75 for mine and got a $25 ticket yesterday for parking where I'm supposed to...
Because I saw Blood Diamond. I know what the diamond trade did to Digimon Honsou and Leonardo DiCapricorn.
Also, whose leg did you have to hump for a parking ticket that cheap?
There are so many cooler minerals out there. Hell, even inexpensive labradorite would look cooler on a ring than a diamond. Peacock ore, olivine, and bauxite are way prettier. I mean, they aren't nearly as tough as diamonds, but all I listed are really cheap compared to other jewels commonly used. These don't even need to be cut or polished, I love raw minerals and crystals way more.
Only 485$???? Mine was 1100$ for a semester
In all honesty, diamonds are bullsh*t. Over priced stones. Would rather a meteorite ring or fossil ring. Atleast those have a cool history.
They're buying moissanite (spelling might be off), which is a cheaper stone but it has higher luster and a greater hardness than a diamond making it a better stone
Because they’re getting married later and later, so a good portion of them have yet to engage in the typically diamond purchasing rite of engagement. Also, they’re a bit less in style than they once were
