Sounds like a Thorstein Veblen fan!Apprepcen|1307380513|2939042 said:How can I phrase this question another way? There are companies that buy hundreds of thousands of carats per year. What do they do with it? I have difficulty accepting that so much money changes hands for something that has no practical use.
Agreed!thk3|1307404767|2939373 said:I would hope that the statement made (the OP) was tongue in cheek, but I fear it was not. First, it seems that it is no ones business what the practical use of anything is if said item does no harm to others. Diamonds can be an investment, a token of one's love, or as the pictures show, just about anything you can dream of; granted not sure how practical a diamond covered Benz is.
I think the world would be a better place if people stopped worrying about everyone else and started focusing on themselves. So to the poster I say I hope you don't own a car that burns gas, go on vacation, eat out, or do other things that may be construed as frivolous; if so how practical are you?
