    Working at Spence shouldn't be shameful. I used to work in retail so I completely understand. Now I work in less retail.

    I would speak with who you purchased it from. We don't buy from public but will help our customers to sell/consign. Check to see if they offer the same service.

    Seriously though, back when I got hitched, I wish lab grown diamonds were a more commonly available thing, I would absolutely have gone this route.

    A friend of mine runs a PetroGraphics analysis biz in Vancouver, does a lot of work with De Beers and other diamond companies. If you only heard the fuckery involved with these companies, it would further anyone's motives to tell the whole diamond business - every company involved - to eat shit.

    I agree that the whole diamond industry is a sham, but there's just something off about buying lab grown that I don't know I could stomach. I would be the only person in the world that would know it's fake...but I'd know. I can't explain it, it's stupid, but I'm just stuck on it. There's a scene in Armageddon where Steve Buscemi is wheeling some bimbo in a bar, he tells her that her diamond engagement ring isn't real and all of a sudden she's not interested in being engaged anymore.

    A lab grown diamond is atomically and chemically identical to a mined diamond, there is nothing fake about it - both are made with the same process, the mined ones just took longer to make haha.

    I think most people tend to associate a "fake" diamond with cubic zirconia (not saying this is you).

    That would be the Armageddon scene.

    There’s a reason why the de beers diamond campaign is ranked as the most successful marketing campaign of all time.
