Recently, I came across an article about the latest “trend” that seems to be very apparent on couples getting engaged. Partly, they claim that this is due to the current economic climate. I’m referring to the growing number of couples that are getting engaged and their preference on buying cubic zirconia engagement rings.
Why? Women prefer big, almost flawless diamonds, and if the fiance can’t afford to get them just the right “rock,” women are willing to forgo authenticity as long as they have the “rock” that they long for.
To each his own, and if that is what makes them happy, who can question that.
Personally however, granting that my fiance can’t afford to get the rock of my dreams, I would rather opt for the tiniest gem, the real thing so to speak. But then again, some may say that I’m just saying that because I’m not in that position. Well, in part maybe yes, because I got my ‘lovely’ – the ‘rock’ that I will cherish forever.
What do you think?
