There’s nothing wrong with analyzing the market. No one took issue with Gary’s post or the initial discussion. I think people get offended when they are personally named and there are statements speculating about their personal milestone jewelry to the tune of “it’s cheap, fake, will lose its significance, and the woman who chose it must not know her worth.” And I think anyone who makes those comments over and over, especially after a mod reminder that it’s possible to express your own preferences without being nasty about someone else’s jewelry, is definitely meaning to offend.
Luckily most of us live and let live, so I’m confident most of us will continue to steer back to the original topic, which is of interest to MMD enthusiasts, naysayers, and many in between.
You may feel hurt if someone thinks or says that MMD is “fake”, is ”cheap” …or something like that. But if you think it is desirable or is a symbol of love, why should you care much? We should only care of ourselves, of the one we love and of who are close to us, right? Many people, many ideas. Is there a forum rule that only good things of MMD can be talked in this sub-forum?
If you like to, you can declare to the world that you are a proud owner of MMD, you are an enthusiast of MMD!
But if you keep saying the MMD is the same of Nature Diamond, you may also make some owners of nature diamond feel foolish. Why did they pay a 8000 usd for a 1 ct nature diamond, the same of a 1/10 priced MMD? Both are “diamonds”! Some nature diamond owners may feel they have made such a dumb decision to buy nature diamonds! Is there a forum rule that only good things of Nature diamond can be talked ?
And do you believe that you get what you pay for?
