Yesterday, I posted about a colleagues quest to upgrade his wife''s er, only to find out that she didn''t want anything larger than the 1c she currently has. She scoffed about my 2c solitaire as being "too big." This is what I''m interested in...why is some consider it showy or ostentatious (sp?) if a woman proudly sports a beautifully expensive diamond, but we don''t think twice about a guy picking up a Harley to tool around on over the weekend, or a little sports car to have fun with. I can''t picture this woman telling her husband that his Alfa is "over the top." Why does society tend to view a guy spending $25k on a bike (weekend toy) then a woman spending 25K on some beautiful bling.... Any thoughts on this topic?
