1. Hmm...how about expanding on this a little.

Your link is just to some image about investing in diamonds. A little content supporting your skepticism about that type of investment would help round out your post, I think.

Otherwise, this is pretty content-free.

5. It was an ad seen on DU.

Not blaming DU. Just blaming the scam artists who try to sell this junk. Probably giving you synthetic diamonds anyways. Not as if anybody can tell the difference. The jewelers only know the difference because the real ones have flaws.

6. I don't see ads on DU.

Thanks for the explanation. It makes more sense now.

2. The russians have BILLIONS in diamonds

and they wait for them to go up, then they dump a bunch, depressing the price.

Gold seems to be the recession proof stuff...

3. Heck they can make diamonds now

So what is the point. I can't tell the difference.

7. How true is that...

I have a pair of Moissanite stud earrings that have more fire and brilliance than the real diamond in my engagement ring.

I'm not even sure a jeweler could tell the difference.

Well, maybe. But it would be difficult...

4. De Beers holds large reserves of stones as well.

The whole game is rigged, 17 different ways.
